A shout out to Kaet for pointing out that lists are more suited to pages than to individual posts.
This is as much a memory jogger for us as it is for others. So don’t expect in-depth reviews. When we’re running around the house scooping up books to go back to the library, it’s good to note the most successful ones, especially as our library system doesn’t let you see items you’ve borrowed and returned.
Wonder Bear, by Tao Nyeu, Dial, 2008 ISBN 978-0-8037-3328-2 No text whatsoever, just beautiful illustrations telling a fantasy story
I’m the Biggest Thing in the Ocean, by Kevin Sherry, Dial, 2007 ISBN 978-0-8037-3529-3 not much text, easy to follow story, set in the ocean
I’m the Best Artist in the Ocean, by Kevin Sherry, Dial, 2008 ISBN 978-0-8037-3255-1 his second book, even funnier, and explores different art styles. I especially love his explanation at the back about the art
“The art was complete in three layers, each separated by glass that was pried from the windows of shipwrecked pirate ships.” Darn, how can anyone else compete? He also sells clothing for the whole family here.
Color Dance, by Ann Jonas teaches colour mixing and twelve colour names. My only beef with this book is that the red is a wimpy pink rather than a good strong fire truck red (there are 97 colours of fire truck red to choose from by the way!)
