Intriguing as soon as I picked it up, because the cover is textured the same way as the pages. Cute illustrations.

44 months - This is a great book, talks about different types and shapes of lines using rhyme, I wish I had discovered this about a year or so ago when O was a bit younger. She still greatly enjoyed it especially it's tactile quality of the embossed and glittered lines. ( )

"lines that wiggle, lines that bend, wavy lines from end to end. lines that tickle, lines that sprout, bugs have lines that stick right out." And so begins Candace Whitman's Lines that Wiggle, a rhyming picture-book with a sparkly blue thread running through it. Whether it's the curly line of a tail, or the zigzag lines of a lightning bolt, the line itself is the focus of both text and illustration.

A brightly colored little book, with a jaunty rhythm and quirky artwork, this is less of a story than it is a nonsense-rhyme, and would be an ideal choice for reading out loud. The sparkling embellishments and thick pages make it a tactile pleasure as well. Well worth the time of any young reader with a taste for Seuss-like wordplay, or a weakness for sparkles. ( )
