Best of 2011- #3- Follow the Line to School
Follow the Line To School by Laura Ljungkvist. Follow a line as it weaves left to right across a page, highlighting letters, words, and numbers as it goes. This book is a wonderful artistic introduction to a full day at school.
The artwork is gorgeous. There is so much to look at one each page, yet every illustration is clear. The line moves left to right across a page, highlight letters, words, and numbers as it goes. The potential for vocabulary development is available every time you re-read the book. I feel like it's one of those books you can read with your child as he grows.
I found this interview with Laura Ljungkvist at The Book Chook I love that she creates her artwork with her daughter and uses her daughter's artwork in her books. How cool is that?
The Book Chook must be a fan of Ljungkvist, because I found other Follow the Line reviews on her blog as well. Check them out here. I know I've already put one on hold at the local library.
Review of other Follow the Line Books
I originally posted this review along with my backyard scavenger hunt on July 20, 2011.
This book also appeared on my top 10 books for play in August.
