Conhecimento Comum




Although I am not fond of poetry, I enjoyed this book. The book was divided into twelve rooms, each with a different type of poem involving curiosity and things that people might wonder about. I particularly liked the poems in the rooms of curiosity, nature, time and science. I felt that these particular poems taught the reader some things about science without seeming like they were teaching a lesson. For instance, the Room of Science used the correct terminology for each of six types of scientists, such as geologist and physicist, while using poetry to show them doing something that a scientist of that nature would do at work.The illustrations were beautiful and were clearly related to the poems on each page. I appreciated the ending that suggested to the reader that they could also wonder about things and could begin to address this wonder by doing something like writing a poem, building a model, or looking through a microscope.

This was a cute story about a dinosaur & his friend cleaning his room. The misadventures were simple, but I think children would appreciate them.

Digger is a child dinosaur, and he doesn't listen a lot. His room is dirty, so his Mom makes him clean it up with his buddy. He keeps mishearing the words (book, hook - close enough, right?). Along the way, the dinos giggle until they get it right!

The pictures are stunning and really well done. I enjoyed the colour scheme and how the pictures covered the entire page. The colours were soft yet fit the story perfectly. It makes this book stand out and look really nice.

This book is a great way to get kids active and reading. They can learn the words (including rhyming ones!) as they admire the pictures and laugh along with Digger as he makes silly mistakes. These books go up in difficulty, so you can start with the easiest level and work your way up. Yay for education!

Overall, I think this book is very cute and a great learning tool!

Three out of five stars.
