Every once in awhile in my "career" as a picture book reviewer, I come across a book and I ask myself, "Why didn't I think of this?" BRAINSTORM! written by Rebecca Gardyn Levington and illustrated by Kate Kronreif is one of those books. From the title, to the puns, poetry, and figurative language on every page--there is A LOT of wordplay going on.
After stomping around in the mud of ideas and words, (and what writer can't identify with that metaphor!)
I pounce and play, embrace the storm, as sentences begin to form.
