Picture Book Review: That’s Life

That's Life! by Ame Dyckman
That’s Life!
by Ame Dyckman ( Author),Cori Doerrfeld (Illustrator)

5 out of 5 stars

When Life knocks on the door, one child learns that Life is weird and wacky and not always what you expect. But if you can embrace Life and weather the storms, Life can be a beautiful journey.

This book is so cute! “Life” is portrayed as a little gray monster dude who cavorts around, pulling pranks, and having adventures.
The text of this book is full of wisdom and encouragement, but the illustrations are what make it so fun and silly!
The text says “Life is short.” and the illustration shows Life trying to reach up a tall table to get a cake. The little Life monster guy is ACTUALLY too short to reach the table. haha! The book is full of silly puns and jokes like that. I love how clever the story is!
The illustrations are what make this book really special. I love the soft lines and bright colors. The energy and action on each page is fantastic, and the expressions on the characters’ faces really draws you into the story.

Such a sweet and cute book!
