I saw snow today! That means that winter is finally here. Winter is the perfect time of year to snuggle up with your little Bookworm, a cup of cocoa, and this week's book: Polar Bear and the Rainbow, written by Moira Butterfield and illustrated by Sanja Rescek.
While Moira Butterfield's
story is simple and heartwarming, it is Sanja Rescek's illustrations
that make this book snuggle-worthy. The lovely watercolor illustrations
are whimsical with a soft cartoon feel, and to top it off, they're
embellished with glitter on every page! I know your little one will
enjoy rubbing his or her fingers on each page to see where the bumpy
glitter is. Worry not, this special sealed glitter stays on the
page, not on your hands. My favorite page features the animal friends
staring at the beautiful falling snow. At first glance, the page appears plain, but if you run your finger along the tiny flakes, you'll
feel the bumpy glitter. A simple tilt of the book makes each snowflake
shine- a magical book for a magical time of year!
Warm up at Open Play Story Time when Miss
Becca reads Polar Bear and the Rainbow this Thursday at 4:00pm!
