For the Joy of Literacy!
Author: Audrey Wood
Illustrator: Don Wood
Simple. Imaginative. Educational. Fun rhythm. Smooth rhyme. All the qualities of a great board book! I at times feel that either the illustrative, educational, or linguistic artistry is sacrificed in board books, since writing for the itty-bitty readers can be oversimplified. Not so with this book. Audrey Wood really delivers a classic. My only warning is that many may buy this board book version, not realizing that it is an abridged version. There is a longer version that can be enjoyed even more fully.
