Book of the Week: Wumbers

September 11, 2012

This feels like a perfect children’s book for September. Something fun and interesting that makes your brain pause and stretch a bit. It’s called Wumbers, and it was created by the talented team that came up with Duck! Rabbit! (which you probably already love).

The text uses numbers to replace certain syllables. 2ba instead of tuba. Bel8ted instead of belated. I’ll bet you know just the sort of kid that would get a huge kick out of this book!

This reminds me of that book C D B by William Steig. I loved it when I was little! This would be such a great book to spark imagination and creativity, helping kids to see things in new and interesting ways.

Oh fun! For years I blogged as r8chel, so it’s interesting to see a book with all kinds of numbers replacing letter sounds.

Love this book! I just photographed it at the most divine bookshop not too far from where I live…I think this book will hold the interest of children no matter what their particular leanings are in books – I know my own daughter adores anything puzzley :)

my oldest (who is 5) seriously loved this book when we were at the bookstore a while back. he turns 6 in november, and i’m glad for the reminder to purchase it so he can get a good chuckle. i was so surprised at how quickly his sweet little mind could decipher everything. loved it
