Thursday Make Me Think

Jumping Penguins by Jesse Goossens, illustrated by Marije Tolman is quite an interesting book.  It's an informational text with points of information and illustrations with a unique point of view.
Each two-page spread has a verse about an animal, a fact, and then an uncommon picture.  The polar bear is a good example. "Polar Bear  A polar bear is left-handed, as are most artists." The picture is of a left-handed polar bear painting a picture of himself or another polar bear ala Picasso-isc style.
The illustrations seem to be watercolors with pencil and ink.  I love the art with its fantastical nature.  Kids will love the artwork and the little known facts.
