Book cover Big Bug New Review
Henry Cole (2014) , under 40 pages
Audience: Babies, Toddlers, Preschool
Category: Concept, Read Aloud
(This book has outstanding illustrations)


Are you big or little? The answer all depends on what is next to you! A bug may look big up close, but when the bug is sitting on an even bigger leaf, the bug does not look quite so big. That is called “scale,” and this beautiful book is all about scale. Starting with a "big bug," you will find everything looks small next to something else, except for the big, blue sky! The colorful illustrations show this as they pop from the pages. You will find size does matter in the pages of this lovely book.

Book cover Flashlight New Review
Lizi Boyd (2014) , under 40 pages
Audience: Toddlers, Preschool
Category: Concept, Earth Friendly
(This book has outstanding illustrations)


What can you find with a flashlight at night? Your boot? Vines on the ground? An owl in the sky? Lizi Boyd illustrates a beautiful book that enlightens us as to what a little boy might find with his flashlight while camping at night. With black and white, and bits of color, children will have fun sharing what they find with the flashlight. The darkness of the pages allows the subtle colors to really pop. This story, told through images, is a great discussion piece to share with children. It’s so good it needs no words.
