I can’t help myself. I love these books. Barbara Lehman is genius. In books without words, her artwork captures the sense of childhood wonder, exploration, and discovery. I can “read” them over and over again. She and David Weisner have blended reality with imagination in so many clever ways.
We picked up our first Lehman book, Trainstop, on a whim. The “train” aspect had instant appeal. The unexpected adventure at the train stop is so sweet.
Our next favorite is Museum Trip, where a class trip to the museum opens a door to a hidden adventure.
And who didn’t/doesn’t have a Secret Box of memories.
