I LOVED teaching nursery rhymes in our homeschool when my children were younger. There are so many different ways to bring a nursery rhyme to life for a child. So when I received the new Margaret Wise Brown, who just so happens to be one of my FAVORITE children’s book authors thanks to the Runaway Bunny, I could hardly wait to dive into the magical storyline and illustrations!
Before I get much further into this review and sensory I would like to say that I was given a free copy of the book to assist in this review by Parragon. For full details you can read my disclosures found HERE.
The newest addition to the published works of Margaret Wise Brown is the nursery rhyme storybook The Find It Book. This beautifully written and illustrated poetically rhythmed book is sure to become a classic in your home library. From encouraging children to explore characters through activities the illustrator has really knocked it out of the park with the fun and cleverly hidden illustrations on every page.
By enticing the reader to find what the nursery rhymes are about the reader will then stumble upon other characters, plots, and scenery. As the storybook progresses, so does the vivid imagery the characters are part of. By the end of the storybook you can see lots of things happening on each page. The illustrations are perfect to keep young readers discussing them over and over. Since the imagery matches what is being read, it can help younger readers get the words memorized and recognized. With so many ways to teach nursery rhymes and so many story options to take into consideration, this storybook does an excellent job of enticing its reader to turn the page and see what they can find next, I know I was!
Thank you for taking the time to learn about my thoughts on the The Find It Book by Margaret Wise Brown.
