If you’re a regular reader, you know how much we love books around here. Picture books, story books, pop-ups, it doesn’t matter!
I am a huge fan of the classic children’s books and love reading them to Nicholas and Skylar when I get the chance but we love finding new books as well. Books that are new to all of us. So when I was contacted a few weeks ago by the lovely Amanda Stanford to see if we would like to review her new children’s book Bird and Butterfly, I couldn’t resist!
Just looking at the cover gives you a sneak peek at just how gorgeous the images are!
The story revolves, of course, around Bird and Butterfly and their trek around the world.
The chase is on and Bird chases Butterfly through forests, past volcanoes, and through the desert and the images throughout the book are absolutely beautiful!
Illustrated by the incredibly talented Dutch illustrator Kitty Van Oosten, Bird and Butterfly is full of bright, colorful, and vibrant images that capture your child’s attention and engage their imaginations.
Not only are the pictures amazing, but the book was designed specifically with early readers in mind!
The story’s text and pictures are completely separate with the text appearing first, encouraging little readers to focus on the words of the story before they ever reach the corresponding image.
And big, bold text helps even the littlest of readers focus.
Nicholas absolutely loved this book! While he obviously doesn’t know how to read yet, it has been a lot of fun to watch him point at the words and “read” them to himself even if we can’t quite understand what he’s saying lol.
And, although I have tried (many, many times), photographic evidence of his love for this book just isn’t happening as we are apparently going through a “no pictures” phase in which he says “no” and runs away laughing whenever the camera comes out.
I’ll continue trying but in the meantime, please take my word for it, this book is amazing! It is not only perfect for even the littlest of readers in your life, but the illustrations are so incredibly beautiful that you’ll forget you’re even reading a children’s book!
