Two new series of small picture books introduce concepts and sports, respectively. The paper-over-board, hand-size Thingy Things series by Chris Raschka uses alliteration and word repetition to build reading skills; his swift brushstrokes and calligraphic lines match the text's minimalism.

chris raschka is phoning it in. up until this point, he has been such a find (a find that sarah montambo handed me) and it has been true love. however, this is our first couples spat. i called him lazy and told him to get off the couch and write an actual book not just pages of "ha ha ha hee hee hee ho ho ho hee hee ha" etc. and he was all like "who cares, leave me alone, i'm a rock star - they are just kids books, it's what the kids like," and i accused him of losing his edge and becoming compl ...more

This book is a great tool to use when introducing the letter w, worms, words that starts with a "w". It is a simple book that has different sounds you can make while reading it aloud to a class. This is a great book to put in the library center, art center, and or science center to allow the children to explore the book on their own.
Wormy Worm wiggles around until you can't tell where he begins or ends! Lots of sound words (i.e. ho, ho, ho; hee, hee, hee; ha, ha, ha). So cute, very simple (fun illustration paired with simple text), great for sharing with the toddler crowd. Love this series of books, they crack me up!

Great book for boys who are just starting their reading endevor.

As Wormy Worm wiggles and woggles, it is hard to tell which end is front and which end is back. This book has very few words to a page and basic illustrations.
So sweet!! Great for my 2 year old nephew!

"I always try to treat the book itself as the artwork," Chris Raschka says. "I don't want you to stop while you're reading one of my books and say, 'Oh! What a gorgeous illustration!' I want you to stop at the end of the book and say, 'This is a good book.' "

Chris Raschka is one of those people who knew from an early age what he wanted to be when he grew up. "It was never a question in my mind,"
