Recommended Reading Age: 3 & up

In a nutshell: A book that, upon opening it, will surely make you smile. Open This Little Book is as clever as it is surprising. Open the cover and you will find a smaller book within.

Open that book and you’ll find a ladybug that opens an even smaller book.

Within opening each little book a character and a scene is revealed.

Repetition and color recognition are perfect cues for preschool age children, while the storytelling is flawless for all ages. I mentioned before that I’ve been playing around with the new Vine app. Have you tried it out yet? The first thing I did after reading it was make a Vine. Oh, the fun to be had with this delightful book!

Don’t take my word for it: “Take a debut author with a creative book concept, mix in a skilled illustrator, and finish off with a publisher who gets  books that are not always mainstream (in size or concept) and you have a winner. ” – review from Kid Lit Frenzy


Extras: Be sure to check out this awesome interview with the author Jesse Klausmeier on Watch. Connect. Read. The images of her first draft of Open This Little Book are priceless.
