I have decided, at least for the rest of this year, to pick three books from the same Author and/or Illustrator for all three book choices. Tana Hoban is this week's pic. She has a great eye for looking at normal everyday life in an extraordinary way.
This first book, like all of the books I choose, the parents will love as much as the child. (at least this parent loves them as much as the children did)
This book is possibly a familiar concept. Tana gives the reader a glimpse, a pin point, of a bigger picture, magnified. The reader then tries to guess what the bigger picture subject is based on that magnified pin hole. Turn the page and you can see if you were right or wrong.
I love, love, love true picture books, with no words, because it teaches the very young reader which way to hold a book and which way to turn the pages. All very important, even before you can read one word!
This book reminded me of a verse in the Bible,
“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made” (The Bible book of Romans chapter 1, verse 20)
Go check this book out! Enjoy the intricacies of the life you live!
