My last post was a highlight of a train wreck of a children's book. The conversation in the comments section was all about media literacy. If you know me, you know that I don't like to dwell long on things negative. And thus- this post was published.
Regardless of your take on The Septapus
, I have felt the need for a review of a really super piece of children’s literature since publishing that post. I guess I just feel the need for some positivity to balance out the force. In reality, I am not a children’s lit expert. I’m as much of an early childhood expert as a terribly curious father of two youngsters can possibly be, but certainly no more than that. I know my limitations. That said, I think I have one really sweet little piece of art to share with all of you. This is a book that is not only deeply accurate from a scientific perspective, lyrically engaging, and amazingly illustrated… but also seems to be a nearly 180 degree parallel of “Numbers” in so many ways.
