No Two Alike review

No Two Alike

No two snowflakes are alike, almost, almost . . . but not quite.

Follow a pair of birds on a snowflake-filled journey though a gorgeous winter landscape to explore how everything, everywhere is wonderfully unique--from branches and leaves to forests and trees to friends and loved ones. (goodreads summary)

Two charming little birds flutter about the forest during a wintry, white snowstorm finding no two things are alike from leaves, to bridges or fences.  Although they can be the same thing, each one has its own unique quality about them.  I loved this book not only for the unique storyline, but the digitally made illustrations were colorful and eye-pleasing, putting me in the mood for a walk in the woods during a snowstorm.  The characters of the birds come to life with their actions and expressions and are just down right cute. The rhyming text flows easily and is quite simple with just a few words on a page but gets the point across of differences nicely.  In the end, the little birds find one more comparison they make and kids will enjoy the outcome.  I think this is a "just right book" for ages 3-7.~
