Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

This is a fun interactive book that wee ones will love.  It is a Rebus book.  What is that you may ask?  A rebus book, or picture reader, tells its story using a combination of text and small pictures or icons. The pictures represent characters or key elements in the story and are used throughout the book in place of the corresponding word/name. This clever book is designed with mazes, puzzles, opportunities for discussion and problem solving situations.  

The illustrations are colourful and the characters are adorable.  The author includes three scenarios with a farm theme which children will love.  First, little Goat is lost and Mommy Goat searches for her precious baby all over the farm. Secondly, new animals arrive. Toddlers are introduced to them and are able to learn the sounds that they make and categorize which ones are long and short-big and small.  In the last mini story Little Goat and her friends help a small kitten get out of a tree.  This sweet book is not only entertaining for the age level but is also educational. I know little ones will want to return again and again to enter into the playfulness that this book has to offer.
