With the little chick Pablo, we discover up and down, forward and back, shapes, the noises and smells of the outside, and take a first flight. It's not scary at all! Especially not if you keep a little piece of home with you, in case you need it later. A fresh and funny story about stepping out on your own into a bright new world.
What I loved: This was a simple story that includes some learning basics, as it counts upwards on the holes, senses (vision, hearing, smell), and includes directions (left, right, up, and down) as Pablo checks out the world. The simple illustrations and descriptive text help to bring Pablo and his experiences to life. The book will definitely appeal to young children who are also experiencing the world around them with or without caution. This would work for infants through early elementary aged readers, who can all enjoy the simple story.
Final verdict: Pablo is a charming and fun read about experiencing new things, with some fun counting, sensory, and directional details. Recommend for a broad range of ages from infants through early elementary school readers.
