Where's Walrus? by Stephen Savage
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Last weekend we had an event with the author in my store and I had to read it aloud for storytime. Read aloud a book with no words. I was a little nervous to say the least, but it ended up going great. The kids were engaged and participating. There was a big discussion about can-can dancers and feathers in one's hair and about how many of the kids had been to Central Park. Really the illustrations speak for themselves in a lot of ways and I can't recommend it enough. I hope others will choose it for storytime too. I promise you won't be disappointed.
In addition, Stephen Savage drew walrus pictures with the kids and then we had a great scavenger hunt for the walrus all around the store. It ended up being a really successful event. I was surprised at how well everything went, particularly the hunt where a different kid found each walrus and we only had one set of tears. It was really an awesome day.
