Awesome book!
I would assign a theme -I Know a Lot of Things....about punctuation - for example. And I would make little booklets for the students to write a book about what they know about punctuation. You could tell them to use two pages for each punctuation mark; left side for a picture, and the right side page for the writing.

Basically, this book is about "knowing" things and realizing that despite knowing a lot, as we grow, we come to know even more. I'd say the level of things range from what a toddler knows to what an early elementary child would know, but the overall interest level probably best suits a preschooler. Wasn't blown away by this one.

Of houses made of bricks and glass, and cakes that take "ages to bake," which sure seems like a pretty good place to start. Still, it's the tip of a very big iceberg, and that is the most important thing to know of all. Simple and wise, with very basic paintings, and lots of white space in between.

Better prose & better art than Sparkle and Spin, but nothing mindblowing. Collage-style, bold colors. Eh.
simple story, great design elements.
