By E. Thayer on June 10, 2009
Format: Paperback
This book shows how to tell a story in drawings, encouraging the engagement of the reader. This book is the essence of simplicity. It is geared for young children who will certainly enjoy these charming stories. For example, the story of two flies and the frog, of the big fish, of the two Indians frightened by an owl, a surprise for Timmy, of a basket of Easter eggs, Johnny and Jimmy's visit to the zoo, choosing a pet, a rainy day, a visit to the circus, and a visit to the zoo by two monkeys. There are many other stories! The drawings are clear <review ends here>.

Same review in the original French:
"Raconter une histoire en dessinant, voilà qui n'est pasévident. Ce livre est la simplicité même. Le livre est destiné à dejeunes enfants qui aimeront beaucoup ces charmantes histoires. Comme, par exemple, l'histoire des deux mouches et de la grenouille, du gros poisson, des deux indiens effrayés par un hibou, de la surprise de Timmy, du panier d'oeufs de Pâques,de la visite au zoo de Jimmy et Johnny, du choix d'un animal de companie, d'un jour de pluie, de la visite au cirque, de la visite au zoo de deux singes. Il y a beaucoup d'autres histoires! Les dessins sont clairs"

I would also add that each story is accompanied by step-by-step how-to's of drawing the appropriate figures, so that children can illustrate the stories themselves. I've had similar books in our personal collection in the past, and they are always greatly enjoyed by budding artists. This book has the additional draw of engaging the children with simple stories, so that they can ilustrate a storyline. Highly recommended for preschoolers to grade school children.

This book is amazing. The stories are so cute and easy to replicate. It's too bad they don't print it anymore.

I liked to use this with the kids when we are going to start a new animal subject. I will tell the story and have them draw along with me while I'm drawing on the board. It's super fun.
