So, when I read this book Nighty Night, Sleepy Sleeps by Brian Anderson I was thinking about this...
I love the pictures: vibrant, catchy, engaging.
Love the way the writer played with words, some slanted, some words in a semicircle, some of the them have huge fonts....they all make a point in the story.
Love the use of sounds CRACK! KABLAM! CLANG! BANG!
Books like this catches the readers' attention. You got them!
And for our much younger audience (Preschool) Karen Katz' s book of number is simply adorable. Ten Tiny Babies is simple but well written. Karen Katz uses all these great adjectives in each page to describe the babies: bouncy, silly, noisy, jiggly. And you know the book has my "vote" when not only provides a good story but also teaches great vocabulary to our readers along the way.
