I Know A Lot by Stephen Krensky

I Know A Lot by Stephen Krensky

I Know A Lot by Stephen Krensky

“I Know A Lot!” by Stephen Krensky and illustrated by Sara Gillingham

A written review by Adrienne

“I Know A Lot!” is about a little girl who, well, knows quite a lot of things. She know about rocks and flowers, the wetness of water and that with patience glue will dry. Krensky story takes everyday activities and enjoyments and sets their opposites next to each other as a subtle reminder to readers. Gillingham’s art uses six main colors: red, blue, black, white, yellow and gray to maximum benefit. Gillingham also employs the rule of thirds drawing the eye to underscore that page topic. Recommended for storytimes, lapsit and parents.
