You Can't Take a Balloon into the Metropolitan Museum

Wordless books open up a world of imagination and allow you and your child to create an experience all your own. It is fascinating how many directions a story can take when your child takes the lead. One of our new favorite books is You Can't Take a Balloon into the Metropolitan Museum, the illustrated story of a girl's visit to the museum and the adventures of her wandering balloon that isn't allowed inside. The illustrations are playful and fun and there are so many entertaining scenes taking place in the heart of busy New York City that one can't help but get caught up in the energy of the book. For the younger child, just following the balloon chase is enough, and an older child will observe how art imitates real life, enjoying the similarities between the balloon's adventures around town and the art being enjoyed inside the museum.
