I really adore Savage's illustrations, starting with the font used on the front cover -- it has such a vintage Art Deco look, which I completely love. I have to be honest in that I've never seen a children's book without printed dialogue to tie it all together, and yet I didn't miss it here. There is so much to look at on each page, that I think it gives you the opportunity to create the dialogue WITH your child. For instance, on the page below, several topics arise -- see Walrus painting the zoo keeper while the other painters are working on a landscape -- see the bridge and zoo keeper's reflection in the pond -- see lovely Central Park -- do you think the zoo keeper will find Walrus? Each page keeps the reader engaged and entertained.
I am thrilled to announce that Scholastic is giving away 3 COPIES of Where's Walrus? to Baby Meets City readers! Sticking with the "3" theme, there are up to 3 easy ways to enter:
1-- Please "follow" BMC and leave a comment that you did (and if you are already a follower, leave a comment as well).
2-- Please "like" BMC on Facebook and leave a comment that you did (same as above)
3-- Please leave a comment with your favorite children's book based in NYC and maybe it will make it to the top of my list!
I'll draw 3 winners via Random.org next Friday, February 18th at noon EST and will announce the winners then!
