Synopsis

Before After by Anne-Margot Ramstein, Matthias Aregui

A beautiful, smart and graphic picture book that explores the theme of before and after.Everyone knows that a tiny acorn into a mighty oak grows, and a caterpillar emerges into a butterfly. But in this clever, visually enchanting volume, it's also true that a cow can result in both a bottle of milk and a painting of a cow, and an ape in a jungle may become an urban King Kong. Just as day turns into night and back again, a many-tiered cake is both created and eaten down to a single piece. With simple, graphic illustrations sure to appeal to even the youngest of children, this smart exploration of the fascinating theme of before and after will please the most discerning adult readers, too.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
