I love Lois Ehlert. She writes about the world and nature and all the beautiful small things I never used to appreciate the way I do now. The illustrations are die-cuts of leaves, bugs, rain, stars, fruit, and other things you can find outside, and the pages are pretty sturdy so they should hold up through average use. ( )

This is a book that shows children different shapes that are in our world. Very appealing for younger children.

This books explores the different shapes of objects that are in our world. It is a book that is designed for reading with the shapes. This would be a great book in the lower elementary grade levels to teach the students their shapes. Also, it is a great way to get them thinking about the world around them. It could lead into many activities that involve exploration of everything around them including NATURE.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0152054294, Paperback)

There are far more than seven wonders in a child's world--award-winning illustrator Lois Ehlert's In My World reveals more than a dozen! Die-cut pages layer creature upon creature, each cutout giving glimpses of the next. An adjective on each vividly colored page provides a hint of the almost abstract shape, while the flip side names the image: "wiggling worms," "leaping frogs," "shining sun," "growing fruit." The clutter of colors and shapes is almost overwhelming at times, making it difficult to recognize the featured object. On the other hand, this jumbled quality beautifully suits the illustrations of butterflies and flowers and birds, for example. Young children will be fascinated by the magically shifting outlines with their brilliant, bold colors, and by the rebus poem at the end, which features all the shapes in the book.

Ehlert is the bestselling illustrator of Waiting for Wings, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by John Archambault, and many others. (Ages 3 to 6) --Emilie Coulter
