Comments for Blue Sky

Blue Sky: 02/18/14

cover artFor about the first nine years of being a parent, the Wood family (Audrey, Don, and Bruce) were the authors and illustrators of most of my children's favorite books (along with Ezra Jack Keats, Dr. Seuss, Mo Willems, Eric Carle, and Lois Ehlert). Although they have grown to have new favorites, I still like to read their old favorites.

Blue Sky by Audrey Wood is aimed at two to five year olds who are either learning the names of things or are beginning to read on their own. It is all about the sky, done mostly with colorful illustrations, and a two word description for each page spread.

Each page spread explores a different state of the sky. There is the blue sky, stormy sky, night sky sunset, and so forth. It's a simple but pleasurable read. It goes well with Stars by Mary Lyn Ray.

Five stars
