Hello, friends! Our book today is Let’s Go Outside! by Ben Lerwill and Marina Ruiz, a lovely ode to the great outdoors and the time spent in it.
Let’s go outside. There’s a great big wide world of nature out there to see and experience, and we can start in our own backyards and neighborhoods. From there, we can travel to beaches and forests, windy cliffs and sunny fields. We can look at and listen for and learn about wild creatures big and small, or build forts, or splash in puddles. And when we return home, we can cozy up with the memories of our day spent outside, and look forward to the next.
Delightful. With charming artwork and simple persuasive sentences. Lerwill and Ruiz create a title that encourages young readers to explore all that the outdoors has to offer. By appealing to nature lovers, adventurers, and the scientifically curious – and any combination thereof – little ones are reminded off all the incredible things that can found and experienced outside. The artwork is particularly gorgeous, both enticing with its nature scenes and representative of a variety of skintones and hair types; several characters wear glasses, one uses a wheelchair. An engaging afterward prompts readers to think about and experience the outdoors in new ways. The length is perfect for a storytime, and JJ liked this one a lot. Overall, a great way to encourage little ones to get out and play, and we loved it. Baby Bookworm approved!
