Children’s Corner #1: Get repetitive!

The Children’s Corner is a new feature here at A Librarian’s Library where I showcase the cute, clever, beautiful, and fun picture books I stumble upon while shelving at the library!  For all of you parents, babysitters, and future librarians out there, these books are bound to provide at least 10 minutes of glorious entertainment!

While exploring the world of children’s literature, I have noticed that many authors use repetitive stories to build up tension!  Here are a couple of children’s books I have found recently that do just that!

I Know a Librarian Who Chewed on a Word by Laurie Knowlton

This is a very hungry librarian!  She finds a word that she likes and she eats it, much to the children’s surprise! They want to know what the word is! But the librarian just keeps eating everything! Books, the tables, and more! But what is the word?!

Froggy Gets Dressed by Jonathan London

Froggy wakes up from his hibernation nap to find snow! He get’s so excited that he wants to go out and play.  But, Froggy finds it difficult to remember everything that he must wear to stay warm!

There Was A Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly by Simms Taback

“An old favorite as you’ve never seen it before! Everyone knows the song about the old lady who swallowed a fly, a spider, a bird, and even worse, but who’s ever seen what’s going on inside the old lady’s stomach? With this inventive die-cut artwork, Simms Tabak gives us a rollicking, eye-popping version of the well-loved poem.” (Summary from Goodreads)

This book has some striking illustrations!

So there are three repetitive picture books that tell a very entertaining story!  Have you read these? Do you like them too?
