Summary- This book is a collection of images of cute animals meant to inspire young kids to use their imagination and come up with their own stories! With a variety of settings, animals, and illustrations you can’t stop looking at, this book is sure to get a kid’s imagination going!

What I think- First off, the illustrations are incredible! LOOK:

Aren’t they fabulous? I am in awe that the illustrations are in clay. I find that amazing. I love all of the little details, like the tiny Koala and the beach ball in the library above. I think that the pictures are very cute and can be very inspiring. I immediately thought “I wonder what book a monkey reads?” Every left page in this unique book has 4 questions on it about the image on the right page as story idea starters. Questions like: “What is this animal?” “What do you think will happen next?” “What is it doing?” I this will really get kids into using their imagination! I think this book can help everyone be creative in some way – inspiring them  with their artwork or writing, or just creative thinking.  I’ll be checking out more of Ms. Suess’ books!

I give this very creative book five out of five bookworms! fivebooks

  1. How creative. We love clay illustrations. There is a picture book called “Brown Cow, Green Grass, Yellow Mellow Sun”, that has been one of our favorites since Neighbor Girl was quite young – completely made with Sculpey. I know we would love this one. The Monkey is incredible.

  2. I love books inspiring kids to use their imaginations. And especially to write their own stories. My friend and mentor wrote an award winning book called “Storee Wryter” that I did a blog post on once which does just that.

    This sounds like it is the same kind of book idea. Cool! 🙂

  3. Such a creative book to encourage imagination among children. I really like that it encourages kids to tell the story.

  4. Nevermind paint then, let’s get the play dough out 😉 This looks awesome!

  5. The illustrations ARE beautiful, Erik 🙂 And I can’t help but wonder if “Seuss” is her real name! lol

  6. I love this creative book for creative kids. Plus I wish I could eat the clay monkey.

    Love and licks,

  7. Wow! What a great idea!! And those pictures are sooo cool. I love stuff like that!

  8. The clay illustrations look great.

  9. Nice name: Suess! And yes, I agree with you, the clay illustrations look awesome.

  10. I want to write books I’m 10

    • Hailie, if you want to write books, it’s great you want to start now ’cause it takes a long time to be a good writer. What you MUST do is read, read, read a LOT ’cause that’s how you also learn what good (and bad) writing is. You get to know what it takes to write different types of stories. And also, learn as much about HOW to write as you can. Always be willing to learn more and more and more about writing to improve your craft. Have fun!

    • I hope you do! I would love to read them! 🙂
