In this wordless book… a bored and lonely boy discovers a key that leads to unexpected adventure and new friendships.
My 5yo twins love this book and “read” it several times in a row upon discovering it for the first time. The pictures are clear, sequential, and compelling—a perfect combination for the pre-reader (or any young reader who is a burgeoning storyteller.)
I’ve loved everything I’ve seen by Barbara Lehman so far, so now I’m on the hunt to collect her books for our family shelves.
Recommended for: ages 3-7
