What Is It? is a beautiful children’s picture book created by Nicole Hoang and Dustin Nguyen. It is marketed towards children 3 years old and up.
What Is It? follow a young girl who as she plays in the nearby forest comes across a mysterious little creature that had a little tail and huge ears shaped like shells, it also had a face like a cow. When the little girl first sees the pink creature she is scared and tries to run away from it, but it follows her. She can’t get away, so she starts thinking about what it might be since she has never seen anything like it before. The creature is obviously wondering the same thing: Who is she? What is she?
I find this picture book quite lovely and at the same time educational because it shows a story where a little girl encounters something unfamiliar to her and it is clearly stated what the best approach to the foreign should be.
The artwork is beautiful and the colour pallet fits into the story in quite a lovely way, making it very playful, but at the same time very calming.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
