Look see, look at me!

A warm and delightful picture book about growing up from a child's point of view.  It captures the excitement and pride surrounding those 'small' achievements.

Leonie has penned a simple, rhyming story that all young children can relate to.  The boy in this story celebrates all the things he can do now that he is ... three!

"I'm so much bigger now I'm three!"

This resonates so strongly with many children; my son announced that on his 5th birthday he was going to try on all his four old clothes just to 'make sure they don't fit me any more!'

The warm, ochre images created by Dee Huxley accurately capture the northern territory which served as the inspiration for this book, helping to portray that not all Aussie children live in a city. The main character is gorgeous and huggable ... as all three year olds should be!

This is an ideal bedtime story for the 0-3 age group and a great springboard for discussion with the 4-6 age group ... ( milestones, achievements ).  It's beautiful images ensure that it will be warmly received as a present.

Leonie was sponsored by the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, My Book Corner was so pleased to hear it was announced Honour Book at the CBCA 2011 Awards.

Look see look at me

The first thing I like about this book is the artwork. It captures movement and particularly that lovely way very young children move beautifully. The simple story of an aboriginal boy flows along and little ones can do the actions of just enjoy the illustrations. Essentially it's about a boy growing up being able to do things that he could not before. The toddler likes the words that he understands and the dog and the crocodile. I expect by the time he is three he'll like it for lots more reasons! A gem.
