Screen and frankly just didn t get it What I could see was enough to make me try again on my computer and oh what a difference it made With subtle Geometric Dimensioning And Tolerancing: Self Study Workbook humor and illustrations this story definitely reuires a close read I don t recommend reading it on a smart phone screen you miss entirely too much On the surface the story is a cute tale of auman watching Warbler whose ids of said Go Faster Food: Over 100 energy-boosting recipes for runners, cyclists, swimmers and rowers humans areilarious But then enter The Fog Only a few others seem to notice it but most just seem to accept it and move on blindly Enter one red People and Places hooded spectacled female juvenileuman And while somewhat lost Seems To See The Fog to see the fog Warbler just fine Maybe if this unlikely duo can learn to communicate with one another they can find some answers that alone they just weren t able to Now the English major in me itches to pick it all apart and see all sorts of allegorical metaphorical insanitorical meanings Thankfully I ve shushed Birthday her and am letting my Library teacher self just savor this lovely peaceful gem or a story I ll think aboutow to use it as a read aloud definitely with the document camera to project the pictures onto the ActiveBoard later Great potential as a writing prompt Ok it s later When I share this with my classes I want to be sure to zoom in on Warbler s expressions as Discordia he tries in vain to get rid of the fog byimself I absolutely love the subtle umor in Warbler s labels and in the illustrations throughout This one s a keeper Review based on an advance copy provided by NetGalley I won this book at LibraryThing in exchange for an onest reviewI d originally learned about this book from a friend who works at a children s bookstore in New York City The word that first comes to mind is charming It s very charming The illustrations make this book 5 full stars They re gorgeous and whimsical and lovely Very specialThe story is okay I loved the part regarding the bird who is a The Lost Heart of Asia human watcher That was genius as were all the illustrations about types ofumans It s also a sweet inter species friendship story If this is a message story though about global warming specifically and about taking action and about galvanizing a group of beings to become aware of a problem and to do something about it well something major felt lacking to me For young children they re going to love the pictures and maybe the story in a superficial way I think and that might be fine and enjoyable But that s as far as it goes for meI think because I love fog before I started reading I was thinking of the fog as a positive thing While I love promoting awareness and a pet peeve of mine is denial I just don t understand what I
