This clever picture book gives kids a lot to explore, both in the graphic storytelling and busy pictures. The two-stories-in-one storytelling also gives parents an opportunity to talk about feelings with young children.
I am geekily ecstatic that the Best American series has finally collected infographics! From a beautiful Wind Map of the US to a Periodic Table of Death for Breaking Bad to pie charts of colors 10 famous artists (from Monet to Matisse)used over 10 years. Factual fun!
If you're a lover of both literature and matryoshka dolls, this is the book for you. Each page is its own book-within-a-book, with each book introducing a new character. A great gift for anyone ever tempted to wrap something in increasingly tiny boxes.
I'm a little obsessed with this picture book. Matilda is so good! Hans is so naughty! Cute, big illustrations are highly appealing. A surprising plot twist adds flavor. Every kid has a little Matilda and a little Hans in them!
This informative guide focuses on 85 species, their habits, and where to find them. From the shore (Black Oystercatcher!) to the woods (Pileated Woodpecker!), you can find known favorites and new friends.
trying to train myself to like short stories and this collection
definitely advances my cause.I love the diversity of stories told, with
different types of people and situations. It's a multifaceted view of
contemporary Nigeria. Barrett is great at giving a sense of place and
fully fleshing out his characters. I'm looking forward for more to come from him.
I'm a fan of Lauren Beukes after the awesome Zoo City. I love that this novel tackles different genres: serial killer, time
travel, and haunted house. The story is constantly being told in
different times about different people. I can see how this could be
frustrating, but i loved it. The worst parts, and this isn't really a
spoiler, were the demises of the shining girls. I want whole novels
about them as living womyn. This is a challenging read that should
appeal to a wide swath of readers.
This book collects volumes 4-6 of this graphic novel series showing a
slice of life in Côte d'Ivoire (west Africa) in the late 1970s. I wasn't
completely sold on this series until the third book. This collection continues the
story in interesting and humorous ways. Of particular joy to me were
Innocent's adventures and his lady clones. All kinds of issues are
explored in this collection, making it ripe for discussion!
graphic novel is so stinkin' cute. Hilda is a great lead character, a spunky,
adventuring girlchild. You think the salt-lions and the rat-king are
cute until you see the super, super cute Bird Parade, which i would love
to attend. A sweet, fun story for all ages.
