A peek into someones personal sketch book, that is what this one feels like. Beautiful, simple, yet detailed in black and white sketches. I love wordless books such as this one, giving your child a chance to describe what they see. This is not only engaging the creative mind but uses linguistics as well. While reading and imagining they are seeing the alphabet and working on phonetics. It’s just lovely. Due to it’s black and white nature, it’s baby friendly, a great starter book.
Everyone loves Oliver Jeffers, right? We do!
Eating books might make you smarter or it might give you a stomach ache, either way Henry will find out. I love that this encourages wanting to be smarter and reading, which are the best combination.
Ages 4-9 (Although this is the first book my 3 year old asked me to purchase for him after reading it on our local library)
So many lessons you can use this book for. Audrey Hepburn left a legacy and this book captures it wonderfully. I can only imagine how intimidating the illustrator must have felt to capture someone so well loved. Julia Denos did just that, elegantly and wonderfully.
I think this book would make a great gift to big people as well, I think it would be a great gift for someone :
-to never give up
-to teach kindness
-If you are an Audrey Hepburn lover
-to teach being grateful for what you have
-to teach simplicity
-for someones who’s dream has changed
-for someone in transition
So, so many good things to take from this book.
Beautiful and chalked full of truths and bad days and did I say beauty?
Great for explaining bad days and how we can get out of them.
Ages 4-9 years
Brilliant on so many levels. This is one of the best read-aloud books I have read in a while.
I enjoy reading the colors in different voices, and I love seeing my children respond to it. Peach is one of my to read, although not my favorite color in real life. This book has humor, truths and allows your child to think creatively and out side the box. FUN!
Amy Krouse Rosenthal is brilliant!!!
Who else can make punctuation both exciting and educational?
