Title: Open This Little Book

Author: Jesse Klausmeier

KDL Description:


“There is a great new children’s book illustrated by the wonderful Suzy Lee. It’s called Open This Little Book and involves each character opening a book to read about another character-the wonderful part about it is its form. The pages reflect the opening of each of the “books” with the pages getting smaller at first as the reader opens each book and then larger as the reader shuts each book. It’s a great example of book art and metafiction that is also really fun to see a child experience! I’m not describing it very well, but it is quite fun.”
—Dawn at KDL’s Gaines Township branch

Amazon Description:

What will you find when you open this little book? A fun story? Sweet characters? Enticing pictures? Yes! But much more. Open this book and you will find…another book…and another…and another. Debut author Jesse Klausmeier and master book creator Suzy Lee have combined their creative visions to craft a seemingly simple book about colors for the very youngest readers, an imaginative exploration of the art of book making for more sophisticated aficionados, and a charming story of friendship and the power of books for all.
