Friday Favorites

Presto Change-o! A book of animal magic by Edouard Manceau is so fun. You take something simple like a bowl of salad, move a few pieces and voila, you have a turtle on a turtle.  Later you have a rocket, move 4 pieces and it's a penguin!  This book will have kids and parents laughing, playing, and rhyming. 
This title is like a board book, bigger and tougher, but that's so you can move the pieces.  It will be housed with the other picture books.
I like the cleverness of this book and it will be a terrific example to use when parents have a hard time understanding how to 'play' with a book and their child.  I'll use it in my Early Literacy Class as well as suggest it to kids and parents. I think even children up to third grade will appreciate how inventive this book is.
