Dash's Busy Day by Terrance Perrin

Goodreads Summary

Learn basic direction concepts and counting as Dash the dragonfly flies left, then right, and all around the pond seeing several other pond inhabitants along the way. Simple, brightly colored, engaging character checking out the environment in which it lives, counting as it goes. The original illustrations were done in ink and watercolor and scanned into computer for final touch up and addition of text. 24 page picture book.

My Thoughts

This was a very cute book!  As a former preschool teacher and a mother of two, I would definitely have read this book to me students and my own kids when they were little.  Any book that is entertaining and educational at the same time is a great tool in classrooms.

I also really enjoyed the illustrations.  Children will enjoy the bright colors and sweet, happy faces and, honestly, I found several of them extremely pretty!  I love books with lovely pictures!

If you have children or if you teach young children you should check out this book!  I love supporting new authors and you should too!

*Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
