I'm a Little Teapot by Iza Trapani
When I saw this title I was hooked. This is a nursery rhyme from my childhood that we used to sing and act like we were teapots. Have you shared this rhyme with your little one yet?
This is a softcover picture book published by Charlesbridge (they provided my copy for review) and the rhyme is updated a bit by the author. The illustrations are great, this is the cutest teapot ever.
This teapot has dreams and shares them with the children of the family. They travel to foreign countries and see all kinds of marvelous things. The teapot is involved in each scene, and the pictures make the story come alive.
This is suitable for the very young and would make a great read aloud story. Just remember to put one hand on your head and curve your other arm into a spout so you can "pour me out" as you read along...
This book is currently available in your local bookstore. Why not buy your grandchild a present that is a memory from the past?
