Look! Another Book!

I’ve decided that May is the new January for me this year.  Or perhaps it is the promise of spring and warm weather ahead, but we finally seem to be crawling out of a winter filled with the usual sickness and stuck indoors-ness.  And I am ready. I am ready to de-clutter my house, paint my walls a new color, plant spring flowers and share my favorite books.  So welcome back.  Here’s to a great (new) start to the year.  Welcome Spring.

One book that has been pulled off the shelves time and time again this winter is Bob Staake’s new book, Look! Another Book!  It is everything you loved about Look! A Book! but with new pictures to peruse and lists to find. The colors are bright and the quirky, creative illustrations fill every corner of space – telling their own mini stories throughout the book. 

My 5-year-old son LOVES this book.  It always makes his stack of books to study during quiet time. He is a reader in progress so he needs help with the lists – but can spend hours flipping from page to page in search of just one more robot.  Or, by himself, he finds everything that makes him laugh on the page.  And trust me, there is a lot to find.
