Not All Animals are Blue by Beatrice Boutignon


Not All Animals Are Blue

I am one of the librarians at the Carnegie Library in Sheridan today. Someone returned the most delightful children's book titled: "Not All Animals are Blue: A Big Book of Little Differences" by Beatrice Boutignon. What a beautiful book. I am looking forward to sharing this wonderful book with my students at St. Benedict the Moor school.

This well written book includes five animals on one side of the spread, five descriptive sentences on the other, and the reader must determine which sentence describes which animal. Oh, I love this book! This book is a must read for all small children and their parents so that they can have a discussion on colors, accessories, feelings, movement, clothes, etc. This is great for children to learn their environment. This must read will certainly build cognitive development.

The pictures are colorfully painted! The descriptions are exciting and fun to read!

I can't wait to share this with my kindergarten, first, and second graders!

Until the next time......

A children's book a day, keeps the scary monster away!

      HAPPY READING!!!!!!!!
