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

Each page is filled with a large, colorful illustration of Oskar and one of his favorite things. He loves the seasons, day and night, and both rain and snow. The simple text and simple illustrations will appeal to young children. Teckentrup illustrates her book in both pastel and bold colors that create a nice contrast throughout the story . . . Even the very young child has interests and things that they love. Parents have the opportunity to engage their young child in a conversation about the things that they love after reading about the things that Oskar loves . . . Oskar Loves is of interest in that it can be used for language development when young children are encouraged to share their own thoughts about what they are interested in. Hubpages.com
