My favorite thing about the kids going back to school is the books they bring home from the library. There's something about seeing what they've picked out, why it jumps out at them and whatnot. Jesse brought Shadowville home today. He was so excited about it that he even read most of it on his own before I got home. It was a cute story about shadows and what they do when it gets dark. The illustrations complimented the story perfectly.
I loved the illustrations in this book. They were bold and happy. It was a creative story and thinking back, I honestly can't remember if it was in rhyme or not. So if it was, the author did a fantastic job, because rhyming books tend to annoy me.
This book is by a classmate's dad. I wasn't that enthused about it on the surface but the kids LOVE it and my 8 yr old particularly enjoys it despite the fact that it is a rather quick picture book. I have to say that it is fun to read and tickles their fancy (what those shadows are up to when we are asleep/at dark) and the graphic images work well with the text. I went out and bought another to give to a friend...
