To the fun rhyming words, add bone-tickling pictures and you’re in the youngster’s world, with poems that will bring them back again and again.

Author David Russell and illustrator Frank have teamed up once again to offer a delightful book for children. The fun rhymes feature topics young children know: building a tower of blocks, the sun, making up words and getting dressed.
Building a tower of blocks, getting dressed by yourself and visiting the zoo don’t seem to have much in common – except that they’re all familiar to young children, so they’re all subjects for young fun. To the fun rhyming words, add bone-tickling pictures and you’re in the youngster’s world, with poems that will bring them back again and again. “Books at first are just pictures with scribbles,” says Russell. “Then, as the child grows, they become friendlier scribbles, ‘til one day those scribbles become the words being spoken, and lo! The child has become a self reader.”
Some of the subjects Before We Were 5 tackles are 'The Sun,' who goes to bed at night just like little kids do, and the fun of having a new shoebox, which can become anything from a doll’s bed to a marble holder or crayon box. Then there are puppies, hills to climb and words kids make up instead of the words big people say.
Author David Russell and illustrator Frank have worked together for 30 years from when their recognized TV commercials led to a contract to create educational films for the Office of Education/HEW.
This is their third children’s book after “Pop-Pop’s Magic Chair” and “The Loch Lomond Monster.” All are available through Apple Stores IBooks, Amazon, Barnes&Noble, Ingram’s E-Catalogues and their site:
