July Book of the Month: It Looked like Spilt Milk by Charles G. Shaw

It Looked Like Spilt Milk by Charles G. Shaw
Charles Shaw came up with a simple book that brings on a lot of imagination.  This book is filled with pages of white blobs that make you wonder: Is this spilt milk? Simple text and nice blue and white contrast, make it easy to allow children use their creative minds to try to figure out what the blobs look like.  In the end, we discover that these white shapes are actually formed by white fluffy clouds.  This book is perfect for this time of year.  The blue summer sky becomes an ideal canvas for cloud watching.  Take a moment with you child and see what he/she thinks the clouds look like.  Great family-time activity for all ages.
