Little Kid Reaction

"Oh, Mama, this is so-o-o beautiful." Our daughter enjoyed lingering over the pages, especially connecting with the little girl as she moves from page to page.

Big Kid Reaction

This is a lovely poem. It has a house-that-jack-built quality, in that it moves from element to element, but there is no particular pattern (e.g., large moon to small butterfly). It makes for more surprising reading as you turn the pages, because your mind wants to think logically, and that won't work!

Type of Book:
This is a bedtime poem.
Educational Themes:

This is a book for sharing together. The simplicity of the text would allow you to work on word study, and of course, you can talk about poetry (and how not all poems rhyme!)
