Hello everybody! Today, we read Open Very Carefully: A Book With Bite, illustrated by Nicola O’Byrne and written by Nick Bromley (while the author is typically billed first on the cover, in this case the illustrator is). This is a very silly and fun interactive book in which a crocodile invades a copy of The Ugly Duckling and wreaks havoc by eating the letters, then the words, then whole sentences! The Ugly Duckling and the reader must work together to subdue this troublesome reptile and determine a way to get him out of the book!
I’m sure that summary doesn’t make much sense! This is an interactive book, which are almost always a hoot for older readers, and this one is very funny and entertaining. Even a younger reader like JJ can have some fun with it, shaking the book when prompted and playing with the cutouts. The length is just fine for a baby bookworm, and the illustrations were colorful and full of personality, which she loves. This is a fine book for baby bookworms, and an even better one for older readers, too! Baby Bookworm approved!
