Another Important Book Reviews

    I use The Important Book as a springboard for my students to write. I have been doing that for years.Today I looked for that book on my bookshelf and could not find it. I am certain it is at home and not at school. I then thought to check the school library. The school does not have it, but it does have this book, which I never knew existed until today.I went down and checked out the book. While the book does not really fit for the writing project I use the other book for, Another Important Book is the perfect book to complement another writing project I complete with my students.We read the story Eleven by Sandra Cisneros. I read up through the where Rachel gets the sweater placed on her desk. We then use this as a speculative prompt. Students write two failed attempts of trying to get rid of the sweater and one successful attempt. Once the students have their say, we return to the story and I read how Cisneros solved the problem.One of the things I have learned over the years using this story is that students struggle with the idea that when you turn 11, you also have all the emotions from when you were 10, 9, 8, etc. For some reason, some students don't quite understand that. Cisneros illustrates the point with when you are scared, that's like when you were five.Well, enter Another Important Day. This book, written for younger children, simply highlights what is important about being 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. I was able to successfully take the students up to being 11 and that they still have those important things from when they were younger. I will use this from now on to teach that concept.

    Super dislike the illustrations on this one and there are better books out there that deal with concepts (especially numbers) and growing up - plus the rhythm was off on the rhyme which makes it difficult to read aloud without stumbling.

    The author works through ages 1-5 starting at one and heading up to five. Each year is repeated so it becomes predictable for the reader and the rhyming helps with the understanding as well.

    Goes over the important things about being age one, two, three, four, five, and six and all the different things you can do or learn at these different ages.

    A lovely tale about growing up with fluid, appealing mid-century illustrations.

    This is a cute book about child growth and discovery. The mirror at the end pleasantly surprised me.

    This book highlights important things about being different ages. It starts with age one and goes all the way through age six. This book shows how children grow and important milestones that children usually reach within a certain age range. In the back of the book there is a mirror and the book ends by saying that the most important thing at any age "is that you are you." The children can look at themselves in the mirror and see how special and unique they are. The use of the mirror is a great way to for children to see how different and unique they are and can be a great way to help children draw self portraits and become more aware of facial features.

    "No!" said my daughter in response to this book's claim that "the important thing about being Four is that you are bigger than you were before." She protested adamantly. "That's not the most important thing! The most important thing is that we love everyone and love God!" Thus, reading children's books to my daughter has turned into a regular sermon. As for the book – mostly uninspiring. I don't even much care for the pictures.

    A book about how being you is important! This book talks about the important things about being ages 1-6 and most importantly, being YOU! This book could also be used in terms of math for younger children who are starting to count because the numbers only go up to 6 however the illustrations will help the children point and count each picture.

    This is such a great book about the ages 1-6 an the different abilities each age brings. This could be read to all different types of ages. The teacher could ask the students to write about their favorite memories about each age or what age would they want to be right now if they could. So many possibilities!

    This book is pretty right on! I think it is an important book to little tikes. In fact, the text reminds me of things Mr. Rogers would say. My four-year-old doesn't sit for just any book, but he sat and listened to this one. It's not my favorite of hers by any means, but the previous sentence is proof my son took it seriously. Written by Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by Chris Raschka.

    You know how much I love The Important BOok. I don't know if you know how much I love Chris Raschka, though. You can imagine how excited I was when I spotted this posthumously published book by Margaret Wise Brown. It's great. Really great! If you have a toddler or preschooler, run out and buy this book.

    I liked the illustrations less than those in The Important Book, and after discussing with a colleague, we think this book was published from Wise Brown's unfinished manuscripts after her death.Still cute, still features solid writing/language. Would be fun to read with multiple young children of different ages.

    My five-year-old picked out this book from the library last week. I'm not always a fan of Chris Raschka's artwork, but in this book it works perfectly. The text is standard Margaret Wise Brown-good, but it might have felt a bit dated and stilted if it were not for the modernizing effect of Raschka's work. Absolutely brilliant team-up.

    I really love how this book featured the exciting developments of each age, and the beautiful illustrations by Raschka really brought the narrative to life. For some reason, though, I couldn't get into the rhythm of the narrative, so the book felt off to me.

    I like the way that this book honestly and affectionately shows kids of each age just how special it is to be that age, without adding or subtracting one single year. Margaret Wise Brown has a way with words even when they are spare, and her touch to this book brings the story much warmth.

    My first graders love this book! They think it is wildly funny and they all want to share what they did when they were each of these ages. They especially love the last page and can't wait for their turn to look in the mirror!

    A picture book that celebrates the abilities children have from ages 1-6. Each year, a child acquires more skills and each is celebrated in rhyming text and watercolor artwork. This is an active read aloud for toddlers and preschoolers that features text that encourages movement.

    Great book to read with a young child. I think it would resonate especially well with a very active young boy I once knew. He would have had to act out everything to show me that he too could do all those things.

    A simple and cute book with rhyming texts that goes through the development of ages one through six. The text is a little more developed than what a young child can read, but an earlier reader will be able to read it easily.

    Very cute book. Loved the surprise at the end. When I read it to my 4 year old the first time, he really wanted to know what happens at 5 and 6.

    A really cute rhyming picture book about a child growing from one to six, and something great about each age. "The important thing about being One is that life has just begun." etc.

    Neel liked it because it had a mirror. Deep liked it because the topic was really good.

    This cute little book talks about the important things about a person as they grwo up. It is a great book for read-aloud.

    This book is memorable as A learnt to laugh, cry, cough and many more action words. She would ' perform' these actions on cue as I read the book. It is a tad long for a 15 month old though.

    A tribute to growing children that showcases the special things about being One, Two, Three, Four, Five, and Six years old. Fun illustrations.
