Who Done it? by Olivier Tallec
I’m always on the lookout for playful books that are fun for the everyone in the reading experience: the grown-up readers as well as the toddlers sharing the book. Who Done it? the latest from Olivier Tallec, tops my list of recommendations. This sturdy “seek-and-find” book has an appealing format: the narrator asks a question, such as: “Who didn’t get enough sleep?”, “Who is in love?”, or “Who forgot a swimsuit?” To answer, readers turn to rows of appealing little characters to choose from. You have to check out their facial expressions, props, hand gestures and read the clues to answer the question. Kids (and adults) will get a good chuckle out of the amusing critters and their illustrations. I can vouch for the fact that toddlers do not tire of this book after one reading! A great lap book, and also one that kids will pore over. Charming and whimsical–highly recommended.
