A Walk in the Forest by [Dek, Maria]

A Walk in the Forest is a stunning invitation to discover the woods as a place for both imaginative play and contemplation: collect pinecones, feathers, or stones; follow the tracks of a deer; or listen to the chirping of birds and the whisper of trees. Build a shelter and play hide-and-seek. Pretend the woods are a jungle, or shout out loud to stir up the birds! The forest comes alive in all its mysterious glory in Maria Dek's charming watercolor images and poetic text.

MY REVIEW:
A gorgeous and brilliant story that made my heart so happy!  I cannot wait to share this beautifully illustrated story about the spender of the forest with my own children and with the young kids in my classes.  This book is one of those books that is simple in text, but the illustrations and content create a book that is big in heart and adventure.  Any child and adult will get lost in the pictures.   There are endless ways to apply this book to creative and artistic learning activities.  You could have a child write a poem about an illustrated page, you could have them draw a picture of something they may find in the forest, you could have then all make a tree and create a forest...just to name a few!  I am so very excited about this fantastic book!  It is a must read and would make a great addition to your home library.  





What's more fun or magical than digging in the dirt, planting and watering seeds, discovering the first seedlings of the season, and finally eating your own fruits and vegetables? 

Lovingly illustrated by Olivia Cosneau, this book is a colorful introduction to the magical world of the garden, including a range of fun activities, removable stickers, and a quiz. In the process, fledgling gardeners ages five and up learn about the different types of vegetables and fruits they can grow, how to care for them, what tools they need, and many other interesting facts.

MY REVIEW:
This sticker book is a walk through the garden teaching the reader the difference between underground vegetables, root vegetables and flower vegetables.  The reader also gets to learn the difference between fruits and vegetables and so much more.  There are beautiful and colorful stickers and illustrations that allow the reader to interact with the book while learning about gardening and the glory of growing things we can eat as well as the creatures that help and hinder the process.  There are also some places where the reader can color the pictures as well as place stickers based on the instructions.  It is a delightful and fun way to learn about birds.  I highly recommend this for summer fun or long car kids!





With their colorful feathers, beautiful songs, power of flight, and dinosaur ancestry, birds are truly astonishing creatures. But did you know that the huge variety of known species includes daring acrobats, inconsiderate noisemakers, ruthless hunters, wonderful swimmers, and blazing runners? Or that the tiniest bird in the world measures just two inches long? 

Beautifully illustrated by Olivia Cosneau, Birds of the World introduces aspiring ornithologists to these and other fun facts through a range of coloring activities, removable stickers, and a short quiz. In the process, children learn about the rich variety of birds living in our world, including nightingales, swallows, hummingbirds, pelicans, penguins, parrots, toucans, and flamingos, among others.

MY REVIEW:
I am OBSESSED with birds.  I love them.  I love watching them, reading about them and listening to their songs.  This sticker book is a collection of bird facts and beautiful and colorful stickers and illustrations that allow the reader to interact with the book while learning about all types of birds.  There are also some places where the reader can color the pictures as well as place stickers based on the instructions.  It is a delightful and fun way to learn about birds.  I highly recommend this for summer fun or long car kids!
