Synopsis

I Hear a Pickle by Rachel Isadora

Smelling, hearing, seeing, touching, tasting - there are so many ways to experience the world! Rachel lsadora's simple, familiar scenes of boys and girls using all five senses, sometimes to humorous effect, is a great way to open up the topic to young readers. Young children will see themselves in the sweet vignettes that explore a wide range of familiar activities throughout the seasons, including playing in the snow, playing at the beach and playing baseball.

Reviews

* A sensory tour of early childhood, exploring common sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and textures. . . . The artist s trademark style is perfectly suited to depict the child-focused activities of these diverse, expressive, and engaging tots. . . . A sour, spicy, slippery, crunchy, green treat. Preschoolers and their caregivers will devour this oversize title and come back for more. School Library Journal, starred review * A tribute to the five senses that will resonate with young readers. . . . An ethnically diverse group of young children tell readers what they sense or don t in simple declarative sentences that are sometimes embellished by the kids thoughts. . . . Children of most skin and hair colors will find at least one face like their own in these pages. . . . A great read-aloud, an easy read for beginning readers, and a model for student books. Kirkus Reviews, starred review* Isadora s book about the five senses is aimed perfectly at another sense kids sense of humor. . . . Small vignettes of children exploring their world, both indoors and out. . . . Interjections throughout, printed in italics, add read-aloud pleasure. . . . Delicate ink and watercolor illustrations on white backgrounds nicely elicit a young child s point of view. . . . Be sure to have a jar of baby dills on hand for this one. The Horn Book, starred review * This fetching concept book from veteran author/illustrator Isadora offers a gallery of sensory experiences. . . . Has the gently carnivalesque charm of Krauss and Sendak s A Hole Is to Dig as kids weigh in on different experiences and responses in multiple vignettes per page. Some of the vignettes are self-contained moments of poetry
