Hello World!

Happy County, Book 1

Written and Illustrated by Ethan Long

This cheerful, colorful book is part informational, look-and-find, and graphic novel all rolled into one. Its target audience is preschool to first grade students. Look-and-find books are very popular in our school’s library, so I know children will enjoy the book for that feature alone. I liked that in addition to finding items, the author has added finding shapes and colors. The comic strip sections are funny and tie in with the adjoining pages. My one, slight, criticism is that the narrative is at a much higher reading level than the target audience. A young child will need someone to read along with them. Reading with someone is never a bad idea though, so that has its advantages too. Overall a great book.
