There's A Book

Nothing Like A Puffin by Sue Soltis and Illustrated by Bob Kolar

A puffin is an amazing creature. It’s completely unique and one-of-akind. A ladder is nothing like a puffin. A house is nothing like a puffin. A newspaper is nothing like a puffin. . . . But wait! Who would have guessed? Could these things be more alike than you think? Young children will love following this mischievous puffin in an entertaining exercise in creative classification– and are guaranteed to start looking at everyday things in a whole new way.

There’s nothing like this book! Bold, charming artwork enlivens a fun and clever game of compare-and-contrast for curious kids and puffin lovers alike.

We’ve been reading this one for a few weeks now and will be reviewing it soon, but I had to mention it. It’s fantastic! What I should point out is that to many of you the illustrations may seem familiar and there’s good reason…Bob Kolar! He’s illustrated some of our very favorite books including the book, Alpha Oops! H is for Halloween by Alethea Kontis, which we reviewed not too long ago. If you loved his other illustrations you certainly won’t want to miss this one either! Take a look at a few of his others:
