Bedford, David. It’s my Turn!. Illustrated by Elaine Field. New York, Scholastic Inc., c2002.
This is the story about two children that go to the park and learn how to share. The story is very sweet and genuine. I love that there is dialect between the two friends instead of using story the entire time. I love children’s books that include conversations. There is an underlying them in this read and that is work together, or play together. There are a few sound words written that give the reader a chance to get a bit silly. There is not a lot of text in the book so I think children could use this in their learning to read books. The illustrations are very cartoon like but this gives the illustrations a playful story. Usage of a double page spread is used in this story to help give focus to the illustrations and in the cupcake drawer.Usage of 2 or more media’s gives this author a wide variety of options on how to draw, color, etc.There is simplistic usage of line we well. The illustrations include only what is needed for them.
