Whenever I come across books that so visually delight me, I always wonder: if the book affects me so much, how much would it affect children?
The answer, I believe, is: LOTS!
Each double page spread features a riotous scene, from pirates in the ocean and kings at court, to cavemen wrestling dinosaurs and father Christmases of many an incarnation.
Speech bubbles and 'can you finds' encourage kids to peruse the pages in search of the right face--a fine way to help littlies coordinate their identification skills, and take great pleasure in the many and varied emotions on the myriad people to be found.
Stacks of fun--and a real treat for illustration lovers.
