Ernest, the Moose Who Doesn't Fit: 06/17/15

Ernest, the Moose Who Doesn't Fit by Catherine Rayner is another fun interactive book that involves children directly in the story.

Ernest, the Moose Who Doesn't Fit by Catherine Rayner is another fun interactive book that involves children directly in the story. Ernest the moose wants to be in a picture book but he's just too big. He doesn't fit. He tries all sorts of different things but he just can't squeeze into the book. Finally his chipmunk friend helps him come up with a solution.

This book is about friendship, perseverance, creativity and DIY. It has the same sort of back and forth banter with the audience as There Are Cats in the This Book by Vivian Schwarz, Press Here by Hervé Tullet, if written) or We are in a Book! by Mo Willems.

The simplicity of the text and the large, outrageous illustrations make Ernest, the Moose Who Doesn't Fit a good choice for group story time.

Five stars
