Not A Stick
i received this book as a gift from one of my wonderful friends, donna, in toronto. she is a great giver of great books, and i really appreciate that about her. thanks for this particular treasure my friend!
this is one of our favorite books right now. it is amazing for any age. there are about 5 words per page, so it's not a long read. but the pictures are INCREDIBLE. very minimalist. very smart. i love it.
my kids really enjoy this book too. mostly cause it's easy to memorize so they like to 'follow along' as i read. but because it's so short, we have to read it twice. sometimes three times.
there is another book called 'not a box'. i can only imagine it is more or less the exact same 'story line', but i am still excited to get my hands on it! i was just at the library today and they did not have it there, so the search continues. if i don't find it soon, i will probably end up buying it.
if you get a chance to read 'not a stick', i hope you enjoy it as much as i do!
