I loved everything about I Was: The Stories of Animal Skulls.

The digital illustrations are breath-taking. The artwork is vivid and honoring all that can be found in nature. My kids thought the images were super cool, being able to see what each skull WAS and IS, and had fun guessing what each animal was before turning the page.

The lyrical text is easy for children to follow along with. I really like that the author made each spread a guessing game. Her subtle hints could have been one animal or more, which could be bit difficult for younger children to guess.

Additional information like the human skull and animal facts can be found in the few pages of back-matter material.

I highly recommend this book for home and school libraries! Readers of all ages will enjoy this beautifully macabre children's book.
