A Very Full Morning
The illustrations are what make this story amazing. The illustrations are dramatic with the use of extremely over sized and under-sized objects and characters. Montanari uses minimal words and lets her illustrations tell most of the story.
After learning with Matt Glover at Lakota I've read this book a couple of times trying to "read like a writer". I think this book could be used over and over again to talk about word choice, many different ways illustrations are used, and the set up of text on a page. I think this will be a book I read on the first day of school and then come back to later.
*I don't know that this review did the book justice, check it out for yourself.
