Weekly Low Down on Kids Books – Previously

Authors:  Allan Ahlberg and  Bruce Ingman

Publisher: Candlewick Press

Kiddo and I closed the book with a happy sigh. *Previously* we had been reading a lovely tale that included every tale.

From Goldilocks to Jack and the Bean Stalk, Jack and Jill to the Gingerbread Boy, Ahlberg and Ingman have brilliantly included all the familiar fairy stories in a unique fashion that teaches a kid the meaning of the word “previously.”  How fun!

How did they come up with it, I wonder?

The whole idea is just so clever.  The pictures so simple and exciting! The kiddo was riveted and I simply couldn’t wait to see how Ahlberg and Ingman would connect the story dots next.

In contrast to the intelligence it took to write this fabulous little picture book, we also read Ok Go by Carin Berger and were quite unimpressed.  The art and design of the book is really cute, but the work as a whole was a bit lost on me, kiddo was pretty uninterested.
