Hello, everyone! Today we read Open This Little Book, written by Jesse Klausmeier and illustrated by Suzy Lee, a fun and interactive book of colors for little bookworms.
Open this little book, and you will find… another book! And inside that, another! There’s a red book with a green book inside, and a yellow book inside of that. Each is filled with a different story about a different animal, each animal getting bigger as the book that contains them gets smaller. What stories lie between the pages of this little book? You’ll have to open them to see!
This was a very different book about colors, and we loved it! The books-within-books gimmick is perfect for curious little hands, and JJ spent a good long time after our initial read-through just flipping the pages and identifying the colors. There’s also some animal identification and a short story about friendship and helping others, as well as a celebration of the love of books. The art is adorable, and brings to mind the style of classic storybook art like Winnie The Pooh and Little Bear. The length is perfect, and it’s great for inquisitive little bookworms. We had a lot of fun with this one, and it’s Baby Bookworm approved!
