Open This Little Book: 03/20/16

Open This Little Book by Jesse Klausmeier

Open This Little Book by Jesse Klausmeier is a cumulative story about different animals reading books of different sizes and colors. Through creative book design, the child reading the story is invited to open each of these little books too.

As the story unfolds, the next book being read is revealed. Each book is slightly smaller than the last, a matryoshka of books. But each one is also a different color and belongs to a different forest animal — much like Eric Carle's Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?.

The book is illustrated by Suzy Lee, author of Wave and Shadow. Her cute pictures and the novelty of finding all the books is fun the first time. For very tactile children, I suspect Open This Little Book would be popular.

Five stars
