Policeman Small

Policeman Small (Mr. Small, #10)by Lois Lenski
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Category: Boardbook

Age: 0-3+ years

Synopsis: In this sturdy boardbook filled with old-timey charm and illustrations, Policeman Small conducts traffic in a small town in America. This book is by the author of “Cowboy Small,” which received a 5 star rating on this blog.

Bilingual benefit: This book introduces simple sentences that are useful in English to describe daily life. The book also features onomatopoeic expressions that are unique to English. While some of the scenes may seem outdated for children (and parents) who have never encountered a “stop and go” sign, this book provides a window into a bygone era of America. There is even a scene in the soda shop that resembles the policeman in Normal Rockwell’s painting, “The Runaway,” that graced the cover of the Saturday Evening Post in 1958.

Availability in Israel: While this book is not available in Israel, it can be ordered on Amazon USA.

Previewing the book: This book is available for preview on Amazon USA. (last checked 7/10/2014)

Lil guy: A regular read.

Mama: I would buy this again and for a friend.
