A new book in our library called What Ship is Not a Ship is a fun guessing game for you and your child. We all take for granted certain words and their definitions. What if you asked the question, what is a bear? I assumed it was a large heavy animal with thick fur and sharp claws. But what bear is not a bear? What hat is not a hat and what pie is not a pie? These are just a few of the questions throughout this book that make you think in a different way. Why not challenge your child and find new vocabulary words as well as a new way to think outside the box. I must admit I did not know the answer to what bear is not a bear? When I turned the page a beautifully illustrated picture of a woolly bear was looking at me. The illustrations are large and colorful which adds to the enjoyment of the book as well as the answer to the question. Some of the questions are fairly easy but a few of them will make you pause and think!
I enjoyed this book from the moment I picked it up. It is great book for children ages 3 and up and can be enjoyed one on one or in a group situation.
