Marthe Jocelyn's "Hannah's Collections", Jocyln uses cutouts to tell the story of the title character. In the story, Hannah attempts to bring different items from collections of objects she has acquired, and plans to demonstrate them in a show and tell before her class. Many of the pictures in this book give the reader a feeling that this book itself is a scrapbook or collection of sorts. For instance, each text square has its own rounded yellow border; visually, this the outlines have a similar ...more

What a fun book! First off I absolutely loved the collection of art that was done for this book. It was listed that the art was done in mixed-media collage, using cloth, paper yarn, plastic feathers, wood, glass, metal, rubber and found objects. I read through the book once and then went through it again to just look at the pictures. Not one page was alike and the use of photography was extremely realistic. The illustrations are filled with nothing but bright and colorful colors and each page wa ...more

"Hannah's Collection," written by Marthe Jocelyn, is a short little story that helps introduce young children to math concepts and numbers. As Hannah goes through her various collections, readers are introduced to numbers, as well as many ways to break down the numbers into smaller groups. The illustrations are done in such a way that it almost looks like they were created out of felt, which is an interesting technique that I have not seen to often. Each illustration is brightly colored, with a ...more

Because this book is telling about a girl and her collections, the orientation of this book is portrait. Each page is different, there is no set arrangment. None of the images have borders around them. I think that is because this book is intended for kids to become inspired and start their own collections. If a border was to get in the way and make the book seem very fake, the children readers would have no interest in starting their own collections. I thought it was interesting that there was ...more

Nothing really caught my attention about this book. The illustrations did have a range of colors and they took the entire page. They also looked real like if they were real. That was good because you actually got to see what they looked like because it was not a drawing. The text was outlined in a white box with a yellow border which made it stand out. The objects that were sued as demonstrations varied and that was good because it teaches kids different things. The book is in a vertical positio ...more

This book introduces numbers to young children with unique illustrations and a simple storyline. The illustrations are creatively done with a collage technique and realistic "photography" like images. Each object, such as yarn and cloth, looks extremely realistic and almost looks as if it has been photographed and placed on the page. I think this subconsciously helps the learning audience apply the simple numbers being taught to the real world.

This charming tale of a girl with too many collections explores how a combination of creativity and critical thinking can be very rewarding. Hannah's favorite collections are colorful and variegated in appearance, shape, and size, and this also helps teach that there is beauty and value in many different things.

I kind of cringed a little bit putting this book on hold at the library. I knew my daughter would love it as she loves to collect things and I was a little afraid we'd end up with a used Popsicle collection and a million feathers and rocks. So far so good and it's a super cute and creative story. The collage illustrations are cute too!

I have a collector of my own who enjoys counting and studying the items Hannah has accumulated. The art in the book is interesting, there are new things to see each time we look though it.
