by Lisa BrownHow to be by Lisa Brown is a picture book that targets children in the nursery age group. This book is about a brother and sister sharing about how they would be certain animals. The duo goes through how to be a bear, monkey, turtle, snake, spider, dog and then a person where each page will show how both of them will act like that animal in their life. I would rate this book as four stars based on the plot as well as the pictures.Looking at the pictures, there is not a ton of color on each page but what will capture the children’s attention is the cartoon like pictures of the brother and sister doing things to emulate an animal. For example, in the first section of how to be a bear, you have the picture of the sister growling at people and then you see the brother “hibernating” on the couch. The pictures will make the children laugh and think about how they are like the animals as well. I think that it is great that there is not too many words on the pages and the children can relate to the duo. I think that the plot of being an animal is a fun concept to explore and it could be a great tool to have the children create their own book on how to be other animals that are not listed in the book. I think though that for some children, they might get bored with the pictures and theme very quickly and the reader would probably have to do sound effects for some for the pictures to keep some entertained.
