This is a book about three warriors called Rock, Paper and Scissors, and they are unchallenged. One day they meet each other and fight! And then they all beat each other, and they’re so happy that someone beat them that they’re best friends forever.
I think the moral of the story is: don’t try to win everything or else you’ll feel lonely in life and also try to make new friends. Also, try to make friends that challenge you.
I like this book because it’s really creative. Also, there are some really funny parts. Like this one part where Scissors goes up to the fridge and fights these frozen dinosaur chicken nuggets. There are some other funny parts too, but that was one of them that I really liked.
I would recommend this book to kids who want to learn big words or know big words. Also, kids who like to laugh a lot.

A few weeks ago we shared a review of Be Quiet! by Ryan T. Higgins, a book that made us laugh at the main character’s failed attempts at making a wordless, artistic picture book. This week we’re sharing Watersong: a picture book that is (sort of) wordless and very artistic, which we liked just as much.
Not quite wordless, Watersong is actually onomatopoeic. Drips and drops of falling rain pitter patter on the water, on wings and on trees. They splatter and splutter into puddles. They splosh and swish onto forest animals. As the wind picks up, they gurgle and bubble downstream, until whish! Wash! Wham! They crash over the waterfall. A fox observes the creation of this spring Watersong, until finally he sees the forest sprout, bloom, grow. The final two spreads are a celebration of the rewards of waiting patiently through a rainy spring.
At first glance, this book may appear best suited to preschoolers who will appreciate the simplicity of the story and the lyricality of the text. There are several things here for older readers, however: vibrant illustrations that bring spring to life, a storyline that unfolds without help from the text, and back matter that offers more information about water and its impact on our lives and the natural world.
It’s wordless, artistic, and informative, too.
