PatrickGeorge publish very funky and clever non-fiction books.
They have a wonderful way of playing with words and images that delights and enthrals children – and adults. Their books have become firm favourites at The Rainbow Libraries. The children are completely mesmerised by them.
We all know that children learn best when they play and these books beg to be played with. Bright and bold with that brilliant mix of interaction and humour, and just a touch of magic, PatrickGeorge books use transparent pages to transform images. Before their very eyes, trees transform (Colours)…
My Big Book Of The Five Senses uses a similar magical approach but without the aid of transparent pages. The illustrations work for themselves and encourage children to think about what they see, play around with words and images and what things mean.
It’s delicious to watch children making a bee-line for these books and interacting with them with wide-eyed exploration, poky-tongued concentration, and pointy-fingered laughter. These are books that encourage children to make things happen and to discuss what they see and learn. And that is what books, particularly non-fiction books, should be all about. Bravo, PatrickGeorge!
