Easter themes from bonnets to baskets to baby creatures and winter's end, are celebrated in simple rhymes.
This series of books is called "Sparkle 'n' Shimmer", not "touch and feel" - for a reason. This isn't about textures, it's about sparkly stuff. In a book about textures, the textures are identified in the text with words like "rough" and "smooth" and "fluffy", but none of those are found here. The inset items are made of various shiny bits, but not identified by texture. As if that's not odd enough for you, the book is marked as a choking hazard for children under 3. Board books are generally for kids under 3, but this one excludes them. I don't see children OVER 3 being too excited by this title, but they're the target audience.
The illustrations, by Salina Yoon, are vibrantly colored and cover every inch of every page. They have some detail, but not an overwhelming amount, keeping the attention on the inset shiny parts and the text. Author Michelle Knudsen's text is all right, though nothing special. The racial and age diversity of the people in the illustrations is a nice touch. The book is cute, I'm just not sure who, among the appropriate age group, will enjoy it.Read more ›
