Author Liesbet Slegers, Children's Books

I wanted to share two different children book series written by the talented writer Liesbet Slegers.

The Guess What series contains titles that include but not limited to,Guess What I Hear?, Guess What I See? Guess Who I Am? and Guess What I Feel?

As we all know children love to play guessing games, and Ms. Slegers uses this inquisitive approach to engage young toddlers. After listening to the question, they will see four pictures on the facing page to choose an answer. By choosing correctly they will make a text connection. They get to find out by lifting a flap what the answer should be. I love the responsive Q & A format of this series and I know children will love them too.

For example: Drip. Splash. Water is falling from the sky. Drip. Splash. It falls on the flowers and on the grass... What do I hear?

The Kevin and Katie series is about two small children who face familiar events all young kids experience at some time. The simply drawn pudgy characters look like early childhood drawings. Their clothes stand out in bold primary colors often revealing a little belly button adding to their loving appeal for children.
