The important thing about The Important Book -- is that you let your child tell you what is important about the sun and the moon and the wind and the rain and a bug and a bee and a chair and a table and a pencil and a bear and a rainbow and a cat (if he wants to). For the important thing about The Important Book is that the book goes on long after it is closed.What is most important about many familiar things -- like rain and wind, apples and daisies -- is suggested in rhythmic words and vivid pictures. 'A perfect book . . . the text establishes a word game which tiny children will accept with glee.' -- K.
Few writers have been as attuned to the concerns and emotions of childhood as Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952). A graduate of Hollins College and the progressive Bank Street College of Education, she combined her literary aspirations with the study of child development. Her unique ability to see the world through a child's eyes is unequaled. Her many classic books continue to delight thousands of young listeners and readers year after year.

Jo Turner5 Stars Out Of 5June 3, 2008Jo TurnerAs a professional development trainer and instructional coordinator, I've used the format of the text found in this book as a way for my participants to summarize what they learned about a particular concept. This strategy can also be used with students to create an innovation by listing all the characteristics of a particular topic and then making a judgement about the most important characteristic. This book is a great teaching tool!
