This Picture Book is Full of Light: Sparkle and Spin
A retro picture book celebration of words and design
A picture book that was originally published in 1957, this new edition of Sparkle and Spin: A Book About Words is a great introduction to what words are. Combining bold, bright graphic illustrations with a text that begs to be read aloud:
Some words are gay and bright and full of light like tinsel and silver and sparkle.
Sparkle and Spin highlights rhyming, onomatopoeia and homonyms. Although the striking illustrations and wordplay will be enjoyed by very young children, there is much here for older children and adults to appreciate.
