Book 377: Albie's First Word

Albie's First Word, written by Jacqueline Tourville, illustrated by Wynne Evans, Schwarz & Wade Books, 2014.

I love this beautiful book for so many reasons that I'm making a list.

1.  It's a great and very well-told story.  Every word is perfectly chosen.

2.  It's based on a true story of a very famous person -- Albert Einstein, at around three years of age.

3.  It's a relatable story for kids of preschool and early elementary school age.

4.  In this day and age of constant comparisons, and growth and learning charts, it is a great reminder to parents, especially first-time parents, that every child will develop at his or her own rate.  I have one child, who is now six, and I still need to be reminded.

5.  It's a beautifully, wonderfully illustrated book.  The illustrations are absolutely perfect for the text and story.
