Beautiful, just like SICK DAY FOR AMOS MCGEE (same illustrator).,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: And Then It's Spring (Booklist Editor's Choice. Books for Youth (Awards)) (Hardcover)
She is a great illustrator, wonderful really. This book has 1 sentence on each page with the exception of one page that has a short paragraph. The reading is meant more for an adult to do, as there were a few unusual words that I recall. Really great "asides" in the illustrations. If you like Sick Day for Amos McGee, which is by this same illustrator and her husband as the writer, then you will like this.
Simple. Mostly about the illustrations, to me.
I will use this in my classroom (if I teach K or 1) with extended reading activities.
