New to Boe – dear to me. I had Open Your Eyes as a child (yep, it’s that old) and found a copy in my way-too-large collection of children’s books recently.
This book is great for pre-readers.
What’s terrific about it is that there are illustrations within the sentences in place of the words (I’m sure that there is some professional term for this style of book but with me you get “pictures instead of words book”).
The other great thing about it is that it is written in rhyme so pre-readers can “read” part of the book with the reader. Boe loves this! He likes when I pause for the rhyming word/illustration so that he “read” that part.
Another great thing is the colors theme of the story. Boe likes to compare the color of the items in the story with the color of those items in his world.
How I knew this would be a favorite – we had to spend time looking at and discussing the illustrations on the inside front and back covers when we finished with the story!
It’s vintage but there are a few copies on Amazon and eBay – definitely worth the bucks!
