I’m excited to share a wonderful new title that my little guy (and his literacy professor mama) absolutely loves! If you’re looking for an interactive title, look no farther than Amy Krouse Rosenthal and David Roberts’s Don’t Blink! Out this year from Random House, Don’t Blink! is fun to read aloud (with a great narrative voice) that I will definitely be sharing with my children’s literature students this fall!
Young readers who like Mo Willems will love Don’t Blink! There is such an acknowledgement of the reader, as the narrator encourages one not to blink – unless, of course, he or she wants to go to bed! With its energetic tone, extenuated by Roberts’s energetic color palette of blues and yellows, this well-paced book begs to be read over and over.
Don’t Blink earns four stars!
