“Lines That Wiggle”
Follow the glittery line
that runs through this picture book
and turns itself into all kinds of things.
In this rhyming story, readers discover lines are found in everyday objects.
Also, readers can trace the sparkly cursive line with their fingers because it is textured and raised.
This book promotes creative components of flexible thinking and different perspectives.
WHY I LIKE THIS BOOK: I like this book because it shows all sorts of things that a line can be. Readers can experience this book through their tactile and visual senses.
