Around this time, my family made the big move from Wisconsin to Indiana, where I immediately scoped out the area libraries. The one in downtown Fort Wayne is incredible! Check out their children’s section…
Sigh. If only I was still 7 – 12 years old.
And so, I continued my journey through the world of board books and Easy Readers, making such discoveries as Allan and Jessica Ahlberg’s Goldilocks Variations…
It’s literary inception!
…and Hervé Tullet’s meta-tastic Help! We Need a Title!
Tullet is the author of the Let’s Play Games books, which encourage children to join in the storytelling — using their hands to make finger worms or to follow a winding, looping line (with eyes closed) — and even imagine their own stories.
You know what’s also fun? Mix ‘n matching all the crazy hairstyles in Split Ends, by Nick Sharratt.
Classic Bowie, amirite?
That’s all for now, but I definitely plan to review more board books & ERs in the future. Any new ones you’d recommend, or favorite older titles?
