This time, Amazon suggested this book and I am extremely pleased and so is my grandson!!
Good story,illustration,rhyme and a song at the end to boot.
Can't go wrong with this one.
This book is equivalent to Julia Donaldson and maybe a tad better.
Oh my! While I was telling you that, the big smelly cheese suddenly went MISSING!!! What to do? I haven't a clue, do you? Of course you do: We must call in the great SHERLOCK BONES. But it seems Sherlock needs our help. And how are we to go about that? By going inside this great big beautiful book, of course.
And will everybody live happily ever after? I think so. But all I really know for sure is that we all get to sing "The Farmer in the Dell" at the end.
The "five senses" are introduced in clues for finding the missing cheese.
The illustrations created by Dorothy Donohue, are rendered in layered cut paper and shaded with colored pencils.
I highly recommend this sweet tale for a read-aloud. Readers will enjoy looking at this book afterwards, reading, and retelling, the course of events.
Now for the writing, plotting, and other stuff. There is lots to like. First of all, there is the silliness and the word play which makes SHERLOCK BONES a good read-aloud. There's bits that rhyme, and just as good, there are word choices like 'cantankerous' and 'scrumptious' that are not only descriptive, but educational. (Sorry, I love books for younger kids that use bigger words.)
The character of Sherlock Bones is very appealing, as is the fact that there is a mystery to resolve. The children I have read to like simple mysteries and the one of the missing cheese is at the right level for the preschool to early elementary ages.
As a mom who is totally into Edu-tainment, I particular like how Ms. Crummel reinforces how 'clues' work at the end of the book. During the story children see Sherlock Bones listening to witnesses and writing in his notebook. In the last pages, we get to see the notes that are based on THE 5 SENSES. What was 'seen' and what Sherlock concluded from that. What was 'smelled' and what Sherlock concluded from that. Adults can easily take this fun book and build quite a few lessons from it.
Great artwork and fun, spirited lyrics should make this a popular book with kids.
Adults (parents/teachers) should find this a good read-aloud that could be tied into mini-lessions about the 5 Senses, and logic/reasoning. The book is large enough that a small circle of children should be able to see and enjoy the artwork.
