Open This Little Book


Yes, please do, Open This Little Book and read about Ladybug and Frog and Rabbit and Bear and "Oh, no!" a GIANT! Little hands will delight in turning the pages as you read the few words of this cleverly designed and beautifully illustrated "little" picture book by Jesse Klausmeier and Suzy Lee. At first glance this book appears to look like any picture book, i.e., standard size and shape. Yet, when I first picked it up I have to say it didn't feel right. It felt, well, almost empty.  Maybe there was a publisher or printing error. But then I opened it and oh what a surprise! For a book with very few words there is much to discover and talk about. And when your child asks you to read it again and again, you will both discover more things and more ways to talk about the characters and the joy of books. Check it out at your local branch library.
