[Free books] Owly & Wormy, Friends All Aflutter!Author Andy Runton – Stg2bio.co

Owly and Wormy, Friends All Aflutter is one of the most charming and delightful books I ve ever experienced Without words Andy Runton crafts a delightful story of friendship My 2.5 year old and I have poured over each page with glee She laughs and loves to craft the story for me now that we ve been through it a couple of times.Honestly, if you have young kids and want to introduce them to comics, this book, and it s companion Bright Lights and Starry Nights with a scary cave, but super friendly bats is perfect Get it now This is an empowering book for pre readers My kid loves it I even checked on him one night to find he had sneaked it into bed and was reading it to himself It was a great moment. My 4 year old daughter LOVES Owly and it s a story she can read all on her own The illustrations are great and the stories are really adorable As a long time fan of Andy Runton s work, I had no doubts that his newest installment would be a great addition to my collection What I was surprised by though was the change in formatting and I have to say, it s all for the better While, I like the smaller, black white books, this larger format, full color hardcover really brings the story to life.As for the story, it is a simple tale of transformation beautifully illustrated and written with picture balloons A lot of us know how truly difficult it is to write an entire book without using a single word, but Runton seems to have no trouble with it This type of storytelling also makes it easy for my 4yr old to read the story to mommy at bedtime always a nice treat.In summary, I was pleased enough with this book to write a review a mere hour after storytime with my oldest son Thank you Runton for another beautiful tale we look forward to many, many. Best book ever Christmas Gift for granddaughter I discovered OWLY at the library, and all my children 7, 9, and 13 fell in love with him instantly, as did I We immediately stocked up on these gems written and drawn by ANDY RUNTON There is a whole series of them Also a plush OWLY cutie The drawings so cute, and all the animal friends in the book do nice things and help each other There are not words in the book, but even better, expressions and thoughts in the speech bubbles The Author does this in a way that teaches children about non verbal communication, emotions, and yes, body language with the little animal friends Super cute, and a must read Would also be good to teach children about emotions and reading body language Who knew forest friends could do that Owly and Wormy want some butterflies But when they come home from the nursery with a plant that will attract some fluttering friends, all that show up are fat, green bug things Bug things are NOT butterflies But, they are nice and fun and good at sleep outs under the stars and always up for a game of checkers Fat, green bug might even be better than butterflies Let s be friends forever But, the bug things can t stay When the bugs build their cocoons, Owly and Wormy think they have no friends left at all They wait And wait And wait And one day their dreams have come true and all a flutter Owly s friends are backD they ve turned into butterfliesBold, graphic and full of fun, this wordless storybook will give pre reader the wings they need to start reading on their own, and a firm footing on the idea of metamorphosis I originally saw this book in Barnes and Noble when looking for a present for my 2 year old niece I started flipping through it and immediately the art jumped out at me It was so vivid and bright Some people might be thrown off by the fact that it has no words, but I showed it to my friend, and he saw it as an opportunity to have even fun with the story, to riff on it and create your own part of the story I really liked that idea After that, I came on to and ordered 4 for my other friends with kids was 4 cheaper per book than in the B N store I can t say how much I loved sharing this book with my niece. Just dont try and read these to the kids I couldn t LOLThese are an intro to comics and paperback reading Love the idea.
