Book Review: Look See, Look at Me by Leonie Norrington - Reviewed by (28 May 2011)

Leonie Norrington has written a great book targeted at a young child’s way of looking at the world that they live in. Dee Huxley's illustrations were beautiful and showed a realistic portrait of a happy go lucky Aboriginal child, their lifestyle and the community that he/she belonged too.

I found that this book allowed my children to go on a journey of self discovery to learn about themselves, their personality traits, interests, hobbies, family lifestyle, friendships and sense of belonging to a local community. The sentences are short and simple, “I'm so much bigger now I'm three. I can run, I can jump, I can skip, I can bump...”. My children really liked to have a go at read the sentences on their own. It also lead to us brainstorming a list of rhyming words, including: see-me, jump-bump and put them into sentences. “See me fly.” We then jumped around the house, ran on the spot, skipped etc. My children loved this book so much they wanted me to read it to them, again and again and again
