Pick of the Week: Wow! City!
Wow! City! follows Izzy (a country girl) on her trip through the big city. Each two-page spread features a new scene from the city. The only text is two words on each two-page spread - "Wow!" and whatever it is Izzy is observing. The illustrations and bright and complicated, and my kids all loved searching for Izzy and a cute little golden lab on each page. Despite the fact that Ben is starting (slowly) to read, and my girls are growing into books with more sophisticated plots, I still love borrowing pictures books which I think force the kids to slow down a bit and encourages them to come up with storytelling of their own. I've enjoyed "reading" this one over and over!
