Monday Children’s Book Reviews for March 10, 2014

March is the month for Art IS Education, the month for creativity!

Perfect Square by Michael Hall

“A perfect square that is perfectly happy is torn into pieces, punched with holes, crumpled, and otherwise changed but finds in each transformation that it can be something new, and just as happy.”              [JPB HALL]

Magic Colors by Patrick George

“It’s magic! With an eye-popping design and see-through pages to flip back and forth, these clever books introduce children to basic concepts in the most delightful way!

“What happens when you mix two colors? Kids can find out the answer with this wonderfully tactile, imaginative, and interactive book. When they flip the see-through acetate over the different-colored pages, they’ll see a transformation happen right in front of their very eyes as new colors and new pictures emerge!”             [JPB GEORGE]
Biscuit Loves the Library by Alyssa Capucilli
“In honor of Read to a Pet Day at the library, Biscuit is overwhelmed with fun activities! He explores the library to play with puppets, listen to audio books, and chat with his friends. Before he leaves, a librarian helps him discover the activity that he will love the most.”     [JE CAPUCILLI]
“This book looks at the colors in French. Main text on each page is provided only in French, with simple, labeled photographs providing support. A “dictionary” spread at the end of the book features all the vocabulary words in both French and English, and also includes a pronunciation guide.” A fun introduction!   [J488.2421 NUNN]
“It’s raining again, and you’ve read all your books and played with all your toys, so what can you do until the sun comes out again? Instead of sitting in front of a computer or TV screen, why not make some of the exciting ideas shown in this book?”         [J745.5 BOASE]
“Paper is not just for drawing! Budding artists use paper to create everything from lanterns to  picture frames. Simple, step by step instructions and big, full color photographs help readers create decorations, presents, keepsakes, and accessories with paper.”     [J736.98 GREEN]
