Adventures in Reading: Can You Make a Scary Face?

The cover of Can You Make a Scary Face?Sprout’s current absolute favorite book–I’ve read it at least 20 times now, most of those in a row, since we checked it out on Saturday–is Jan Thomas’ Can You Make a Scary Face?  The book features a brightly-colored lady bug that speaks directly to the reader, asking him or her to play make believe with the bug.

One of the inner pages of the book.  The lady bug is on the right page, and the left page instructs the reader to "Pretend you have a tiny bug on your nose.  WIGGLE IT OFF!"The pictures are large, simple, and high-contrast, making them easy for my VI kiddo to see.  The best part, however, is interacting with the book; this book shows that reading can be fun by having kids get up, sit down, laugh, dance, and wiggle.
