Book review: Fly!, by Karl Newsom Edwards

Edwards, Karl Newsom. Fly! Random House Children’s Books, a division of Random House LLC. 2015. Unp. $15.99. 9780385392839. Ages 1-5. P7 Q8

Edwards FlyThis delightful children’s book explores the kinetic characteristics of our favorite backyard insects. The goal is to help a young fly discover his euonymic locomotion. Each new insect we meet is depicted in a child-friendly, wide-eyed style. The book’s layout has a generous use of white space and the limited vocabulary is strengthened by interesting fonts. Young children will enjoy acting out these distinctive activities as they identify each member of this friendly cast of enthusiastic insects.
