Near, Far by Silvia Borando -- ADVISABLE

Borando, Silvia Near, Far. PICTURE BOOK. Candlewick Press, 2013. $14. 9780763687830

This simple wordless picture book shows seven different animals. Each one is given three different page spreads. The first spread shows an extreme closeup of one part of the animal. The second zooms out a bit. The third shows the entire animal.

The cartoonish illustrations are colorful, lively, and fun. Young children will enjoy guessing what each animal will turn out to be. It would be especially good for pre-schoolers or very young elementary-schoolers.

Pre-K, EL (K-3) -- ADVISABLE.
