Albert by Lani Yamamoto


Albert by Lani Yamamoto

School time, dinner time, play time, bedtime - Albert's world is moving too fast. Sometimes he wishes things would just stop. Then the night comes, his parents go to bed and the world really does seem to come to a standstill. Albert watches the sky full of stars that have been there for ever, but then one of them disappears! As the night slowly turns into morning, Albert muses, 'Maybe the world never really stands still. Maybe everything is always changing...' The second book in an exciting series introducing philosophy to five-year-olds, Albert 2 discusses the concept of flux in a way to which children can respond!


If you like books that push boundaries of what has gone before and show us new ways of presenting ideas to children you will probably appreciate the philosophy books Lani Yanamoto has produced for very young children! the writing is economical and the illustrations are deceptively simple line drawings with added colour. These books seem to stir the imagination to see things through once readers become absorbed in something - rather like Albert Einstein himself! -- Margaret Mallet English Association Magazine
