Review: Pablo

Pablo
Author & Illustrator: Rascal

Rascal has created a simple book that offers more than what a reader sees at face value. Using a sequential process, Rascal takes us through the steps a chick follows to come out of its shell.

Rascal has created a simple book that offers more than what a reader sees at face value. Using a sequential process, Rascal takes us through the steps a chick follows to come out of its shell.

As you read, you see the steps from the perspective of the chick as it pecks its way out of the shell one hole at a time. Seamlessly, this book also serves as a counting book, numbering each hole as the chick opens them.

Additionally, the book presents the senses as Pablo, sees, hears, feels, touches, and tastes the world he is entering. As he is experiencing each new thing, we see how he is responding to the new world he will soon be a part of.

Finally, the book can easily be used as a way of explaining the life cycle of a chick, and what happens in order for a chick to hatch from its egg.

This book is written for toddlers yet, it can easily be used for young school age children as a resource for teaching counting, sequencing, the life cycle of a chick, and possibly even a creative writing lesson for kids that are a little older using the unexpected ending as a prompt.

With simple colors, concise and straightforward text, a predictable and funny storyline, and a message of courage and adventure, this is a book that will surely be enjoyed by all who read it.
