Look! A Book! is "A Zany Seek-and-Find Adventure." I love the big (sometimes inches big) words. Some of the pages offer peep-holes to the next page and the text is rhyming.
"Look! A bone! A cone! A pumpkin phone! A clock! A sock! A toothy croc!"
My daughter (age 4) can certainly "read" and remember text like what is above. What amazes me is that she is able to remember silly text like this, even if she just wants to sing it without the book in front of her:
"Bubbles! Bubbles! In the sea! AQUA-GOOFY JUBILEE! Search to find the honeybee!"
This large book includes illustrations about a variety of things. Inside each illustration are hidden things like pizza slices, baseballs, and, of course, books!
Things that go
Museum creatures all escape
Aqua-goofy jubilee (under the sea)
Merryworld (amusement park)
Treetop town (tree houses)
Personally, I love the illustrations and will be seeking out more of Bob Staake's books. My only complaint is that it has a haunted house scene in it (including a red devil). Not that I want to desensitize my children, but my 4 year old has gotten used to this scene. My 2 year old was never bothered by it. This concern would make me think carefully before giving Look! A Book! to some children.
I thank Little Brown for making fabulous books and providing Look! A Book! for review purposes.
This is our first Staake book and now we have his two other books because they're so much fun. I think I may like them more than my kids though. The illustrations are eye catching, especially this Look! A Book! There's so much to see and find. It keeps us busy but makes bedtime reading time much too long.
Look! A Book! is the perfect example of why I wish that I had discovered the weird and wonderful world that is a Bob Staake children's book earlier. The text is simple, fairly straightforward, and at times, silly; all that is great, but team that text with the brilliant, zany, cram-every-inch-with-action-on-every-page illustrations and the results are nothing short of magical. And those magical illustrations? -- they grace everything from the jacket, cover and end papers and every delightful page in between.
My son, at not quite four, seems to be the perfect age to enjoy the beautiful madness of this book. Maybe I did show up to the party at exactly the time, after all.
