The truth about shadows. I enjoyed this one.
Louisa Verma
I thought this was a cute book. It makes one think about all the places shadows are or are not and why. Some children are fascinated with their shadows and this would be an excellent book for them. I cannot seem to get my girls interested in reading it though perhaps they've passed that "window of fascination" with shadows. The illustrations are also wonderful.
This book talks about all the places that shadows show up at and how shadows seem to become alive and move. The illustrations of the children are so lifelike and I like how the story flowed by rhyming. I had a lot of memories pop of while I was reading this.

I could use this book to activate schema.

This book included beautiful illustrations of all the places that we see shadows. The book that I read had post-it notes throughout from where the previous reader had written what each shadow reminded him of - which gave me an idea of a lesson to use with this book.
This book would be great for a kindergarten class. It was very descriptive with lovely pictures in it. I found myself with lots of "que" questions I could have asked the students, had I been reading aloud.

I liked this book. What kid isn't curious about what a shadow is. This is an interesting story that kids would enjoy.
Lovely illustrations, a simple story about a simple concept.
