Bruno Builder Bakes Bread: A Mix-and-Match Book

Apr. 2023. 24p. Board $12.99. ISBN 9781646868506.
PreS-K–Deliciously eccentric body types, varied skin tones, unpredictable placement of limbs, unreliable numbers of fingers or toes, and wildly nonspecific genders make this the book to pick when you want all the toddlers, babies, preschoolers, and caregivers within earshot to come to story hour. This book is devised like a Dutch door, so that Sacha Surfer may ride the waves, but with the turn of one panel and not the other, Sacha might also paint a masterpiece. The paintings are invariably cool, like counterculture art, but nevertheless remarkably childlike and accessible. A delight to pore over.
VERDICT Mix and match fun to induce giggles or riots, but this will have all onlookers interacting and learning new words.
