This Book Is Spineless By Lindsay Leslie


Back of Book:
With suspense and humor, this wary and unadventurous book uses the five senses to try and figure out what kind of story might be on its pages.
My Review:
I received a copy of this picture book from author Lindsay Leslie in exchange for an honest review.

This is such a creative story that discusses the five senses in a unique way. The text is written in a first-person narrative and invites the reader to be apart of the experience. The book explains to readers that it is spineless and scared of everything. As the story progresses the book shares different aspects of the five senses with readers. I love the way the text is written. The five sense words stand out in the paragraph and immediately draw years to the story. Readers will laugh at the books struggle to face its fears and decide what genre of story it is. The illustrations are well drawn and match the narrative beautifully. This is an amazing book to use for an introduction to first-person writing and the different aspects of the five senses. I think this book should be in every elementary and classroom library.
