Silly Wonderful You

Silly Wonderful You
Written by Sherri Duskey Rinker
Illustrated by Patrick McDonnell
Harper Collins Publisher, 2016. Picture Book.

Books are often written to entertain the reader as well as the child being read to. Rinker has done this, in this fun story, written as a letter to a toddler from her mother. McDonnell's cartoon illustrations are funny and children will laugh-out-loud as the reader follows the toddler throughout a normal energetic, busy day. There is rhyming throughout accompanied by large entertaining words that mirror the story. Any caregiver will empathize with the mother in this story and enjoy the ride of spending the day with a toddler.
