|The Nonsense Show : Eric Carle|
Roll up, roll up. Something a new and a little different today and yet at the same time, refreshingly nostalgic and familiar.
"But that's not possible", I hear you say.
My response is quite simple: Eric Carle.
I'm sure, like me, you have fond memories of childhood storytimes involving that ubiquitous hungry caterpillar. I loved that book, with all of the holes through it's pages to show what had been eaten. So, imagine how excited I was when I heard there was a new Carle book in the world.
The Nonsense Show is frankly wonderful. A colourful, enjoyable romp through lots of glossy rhyming pages. I took this with me to share with my friends' kids last week when I went to visit, and can confirm that it's a book which can be enjoyed by children and grown ups together.
Which children's books hold fond memories for you?
