I Wonder is a silly little story that stretches the imagination with cute rhyming verse that ask questions like, “How would a snake skate and could sloths eat cake?”
Colorful illustrations and silly questions had Princess Sophia going back and forth between laughing and exasperation. She has a vivid imagination and my kitchen chairs frequently sail the high seas as a pirate ship seeking treasure and she performs surgeries daily to extract germs and worms from our ears… but a panda dancing? Preposterous! Hats on bats? Ridiculous. We laughed our way through this story. I admit I chuckled more at Sophia’s disbelief that someone thought hens could talk. The fantasy genre might not be for her. (Nonna’s working on it)
Prince Clayton liked pointing at the animals and it gave me a chance to identify them and ask him to point to the animals. He could point to the worm, giraffe and other familiar animals. I don’t think he understood what we were laughing at, but he giggled right along with us. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Along with the rhyming verse are colorful photos showing pandas dancing and snakes on skateboards. In the back of the book are fun facts and activities to help stretch the imagination and make this perfect for homeschoolers, the classroom and helping your own little one be creative. A mix of familiar and new vocabulary building words make this great for early readers.
