The Lovereading4Kids comment

Oskar, a small, black bird, loves lots of things: the deep blue sea, the smell of spring, pictures. He loves to lose himself in a book, walking in the moonlight, and the silence of snow. Each of his passions is depicted on its own clean, clear spread, in simple, bold collage illustration, with Oskar himself a lively presence centre page. ‘What do you love?’ he asks at the book’s end and, inspired by Oskar, little children will have no shortage of suggestions. Simple, stylish and beautiful to look at, this is a wonderful book for sharing. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Oskar Loves... by Britta Teckentrup

Oskar, a charming raven, loves trees, red cherries, and the smell of spring. He also loves rain, snow, clouds, books, and the moon. With this book s simple, boldly colored, and beautiful illustrations, children are invited into Oskar s world and in turn to explore the wonders of the world around them.

As she has done in her previous books, such as Grumpy Cat and Before I Wake Up , Britta Teckentrup combines evocative art with a storyline that will appeal to children and those who read to them. Asking, What do you love? Oskar Loves invites all of us to take a moment to appreciate the world we inhabit.

Reviews

Britta Teckentrup combines beautiful uncluttered geometric art with a simple prose that will feel relevant and real to very young readers/listeners. Oskar Loves invites us all to appreciate the simple things in our lives. Miss Marple's Musings

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
