Open This Little Book; Jesse Klausmeir and Suzy Lee (illustrator)


Open This Little Book; Jesse Klausmeir
Chronicle Books - 2013


This kids book is extra special, and a must buy in my opinion - here's why:

It is not your run-of-the-mill kids book, yes it is cute and fun and has darling illustrations, but it is also interactive, educational and totally unique.

In a nutshell, it is a series of books inside the book. Each book, is a different color and has a critter of the same. For example the green book has a green frog to read about, then there is a red book with a ladybug etc. Oh heck, just watch this adorable YouTube Video that does this book justice.

It's definitely a creative idea for a children's book, as it teaches size and color concepts and then there are the cute little critters and messages as well. The illustrator Suzy Lee and the author have made for a winning combination. Kids and adults will love having this one as part of their permanent combination.
