What's in Your Purse? by Abigail Samoun
Oh, the fun of looking through Grandma's purse when you are a tot. I remember! Do you? How about What's in Your Purse? by Abigail Samoun? The fresh lift-the-flap let's you peek through Mommy's, Grandma's, Auntie's, Sister's, and a child's purse. The distinguishing items are great, from Sis's cell and diary, to Auntie's passport. Clever questions encourage the reader to explore more. Where has Auntie visited? What's the book Grandma's reading?
My surprise was to look in the child's purse and discover Emily and Sarah's tic tac toe, and sleepover invite. My daughter is named Emily and her bestie is Sarah. I have to recommend this work!
Nathalie Dion's soft illustrations are filled with pattern and detail. The work appears to be watercolor and color pencil. A perfect choice for the subject.
Pick up What's in Your Purse? for your totz and take a peek inside.
