Rock-a-bye Room By Susan Meyers, illustrated by Amy Bates Published 2013 by Harry N. Abrams
it weird that my first reaction to this book is "bedtime story for
hipster parents"? It's actually a good bedtime story for anyone, with
lulling rhymes and gentle illustrations. But something about it shouts
"hipster" at me for some reason. The gentle rhythm would work well if
you wanted to sing this story instead of just reading. The illustrations
are definitely suited for a bedtime read, calm colors and simple lines.
Another for my arsenal of bedtime books.

boy, are parents going to love this one! This book is delightful - with
transparent pages, it shows what happens when you mix different colors
together, creating new pictures with every flip of the page. The text is
very simple, making this a perfect (and, I'm sure, endlessly
fascinating) book to share with even the youngest readers. I definitely
recommend this one!

awesome concept book from George - this time teaching opposites with
magic pages. These books are just brilliantly done, and I particularly
like this one for the more interesting opposites he chooses to
introduce. Kids will love discovering the magic in these pages.
