Margaret Wise Brown 5-Minute Stories based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Silver Dolphin Books has put together a beautifully illustrated collection of Margaret Wise Brown's picture book stories that take only about 5 minutes each to read, making it the perfect book to grab for bedtime! This wonderful collection of Margaret Wise Brown stories includes 'Count to 10 With A Mouse', 'A Song for All Seasons', 'Sleep Little Angel', 'Away in My Airplane', 'Wish Upon A Dream', 'Sleep Tight, Sleepy Bears', 'All the Families', and 'The Tickly Spider'. Each of these lovely stories is around 25 pages long and takes about five minutes each to read. The prose is lyrical, short, and often rhymes so they could be rushed through in a much shorter time if needed. The stories are illustrated by a handful of different artists so each is unique with its own style but all are soft and dreamy with lots of color, texture, and detail. The switch-up made each story new and exciting!
Mommies and kiddies love big bedtime storybooks. This compilation of a few stories by beloved author, Margaret Wise Brown - of Goodnight Moon fame, will be sure to please both parents and children alike. I previously reviewed a couple of the stories included in this compilation when published in separate book form, and you can read my reviews: Count To 10 With A Mouse, Sleep Tight Little Bears. https://www.chatwithvera.com/2019/04/beloved-author-margaret-wise-brown.html Titles included are: Count To 10 With a Mouse, A Song For All Seasons, Sleep Little Angel, Away In My Airplane, Wish Upon A Dream, Sleep Tight Little Bears, All The Families: Everyone Has A Family, and The Tickly Spider. This large, hardcover book is softly padded to provide ease of handling by the young child. The illustrations are captivating and style varies from story to story. I am especially fond of the illustrations in Count To 10 With A Mouse and Sleep Tight Little Bears. The plethora of insects in the bright and colorful The Tickly Spider are great and the little boy's expressions are just so much fun and joyful. Pure boy! In A Song For All Seasons the child is taken delightfully through each of the seasons as they begin and transition from one to the next. Beautiful words and pictures. I think my least favorite illustrations was All the Families but the story/poem is quite nice. I love this big book of 5-Minute Stories for the little ones in your life and recommend it. I received a complimentary copy to facilitate this review of my opinions which are freely given.
