  2. 2. Book Review #1 wonders of nature by Jane Werner Watson<br />Isn't it a wonder that out in the pond, smooth wiggly tadpoles lose their tails and grow legs, and turn into frogs? And that fuzzy caterpillars weave silken cocoons around themselves and go to sleep, then wake up as pretty moths or butterflies?”It’s a rare nonfiction book that’s also a simple, beautiful poem. In this gorgeous Little Golden Book from 1957, Eloise Wilkin’s stunning and realistic artwork is accompanied by gentle text that brings an awe of nature to the youngest readers. <br />

  6. 6. Book Review #3 Shapes of Me and other stuff by Dr. Seuss<br />Subtitled "Dr. Seuss's Surprising Word Book," The Shape of Me and Other Stuff certainly lives up to its billing. In this delightful book, first published in 1973, kids are encouraged to ponder shapes they may never have considered before: "Just think about the shape of beans and flowers and mice and big machines!" Dr. Seuss's illustrations are in silhouette (for the purpose of accenting the outlines of figures), but are nonetheless up to par with his usual wacky, amusing style. Soaring well beyond the mundane arena of circles, triangles, and squares, here we are challenged to consider "the shape of camels … the shape of bees and the wonderful shapes of back door keys!" Kids will love the silly rhymes and funny pictures, and parents will appreciate this original take on the largely untapped world of shapes. <br />

Then we will put the pages together to make our big book of numbers from one to ten.<br />
  10. 10. Book review #5 Our Solar System by Seymour Simon<br />Born almost 5 billion years ago at the edge of the Milky Way galaxy, our Solar System is a place filled with mystery and wonder.

Better yet, a music CD is enclosed with this book, so kids can dance and sing along with the animals. The big ostrich dances with feathers that bounce . . . the silly snake slithers with a hiss and a wriggle . . . the monkeys bop with a jump and a jiggle . . . and even the elephant dances with big stomping feet.

  16. 16. Review #8 In my world by Lois Ehlert<br />There are far more than seven wonders in a child's world--award-winning illustrator Lois Ehlert'sIn My World reveals more than a dozen! Die-cut pages layer creature upon creature, each cutout giving glimpses of the next. An adjective on each vividly colored page provides a hint of the almost abstract shape, while the flip side names the image: "wiggling worms," "leaping frogs," "shining sun," "growing fruit." The clutter of colors and shapes is almost overwhelming at times, making it difficult to recognize the featured object. On the other hand, this jumbled quality beautifully suits the illustrations of butterflies and flowers and birds, for example. Young children will be fascinated by the magically shifting outlines with their brilliant, bold colors, and by the rebus poem at the end, which features all the shapes in the book.<br />
