Oskar loves... #bookreview

 Oskar loves...

by Britta Teckentrup

Today I'm going to share a book that has become one of my fast favorites this fall. Oskar loves... by Britta Teckentrup features an adorable crow named Oskar. Across the pages he shares all the things he loves. From pebbles to books, our feathered friend enjoys his world. I love the simplicity of this book just sharing about what a little bird loves but the illustrations and the colors used on each of the pages. It is stunning to read and has drawn me in just to get another look at the pictures.


Bestselling children’s author and illustrator Britta Teckentrup is back with Oskar, an engaging new character who loves…everything! Oskar, a charming raven, loves trees, red cherries, and the smell of spring. He also loves rain, snow, clouds, books, and the moon. With this book’s simple, boldly colored, and beautiful illustrations, children are invited into Oskar’s world and in turn to explore the wonders of the world around them. As she has done in her previous books, such as Grumpy Cat and Before I Wake Up, Britta Teckentrup combines evocative art with a storyline that will appeal to children and those who read to them. Asking, “What do you love?” Oskar Loves… invites all of us to take a moment to appreciate the world we inhabit.

Ages 4-8
