Grandma’s Tiny House by author JaNay Brown-Wood and illustrator Priscilla Burris
Age Range: 3 – 5 years
Publication Date: August 8, 2017
This rhyming counting picture book cooks up a lot of love and togetherness when a large gathering outgrows the space in grandma’s home such that guests cannot eat and socialize comfortably. The solution is a simple one that many children will be able to relate to if not in their house perhaps in someone else’s. Mouth watering dishes are deliciously depicted and can encourage conversations about different foods that people like to eat. My Book Eyes adored the busy scenes giving readers much to absorb.
Think Big by author Liz Garton Scanlon and illustrator Vanessa Brantley Newton
Age Range: 3 – 6 years
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Publication Date: July 12, 2012
In this rhyming picture book, text is short but exact and pairs beautifully with large stimulating illustrations about resourceful children. The youngsters’ artistic endeavors culminate into an impressive finale. Small success leading to a future career is a valuable message. My Book Eyes savored conversational details i.e. records and metronome to name a few.
