My Life in Pictures by Deborah ZemkeFans of Amelia’s Notebook and Judy Moody will love this friendship story bursting with doodles and pictures
Bea Garcia is an artist. She draws anywhere and everywhere—but mostly in her own notebook. When Bea’s first and only best friend Yvonne moves to Australia, not even drawing makes Bea feel better. And things only get worse when a loud, rambunctious boy moves in next door. He’s nothing at all like Yvonne! But with a little imagination and a whole lot of doodles, Bea Garcia might just make a new friend.
This first book in a brand-new chapter book series is a must-read for doodlers everywhere.

My Life In Pictures., By Pamela Paul and Maria Russo. Happily, raising a reader is fun, rewarding and relatively easy.
There are more sophistocated rebus books for preschoolers as well. The rebus pictures enter in slowly so your child can get used to the picture substitution gradually. There is a key in the back, but most of the names should be familiar to a child who has carefully talked about the pictures with Mom or Dad. Isadora works wonders with painted paper collages, and the book is lovely. Hillenbrand spreads his picture keys throughout the illustrations, so you get to point out labels and pictographs, a double print awareness whammy. A Read-Together Rebus Story. The rebus rhymes are simple and fun and this book is accessible and fun for younger children who need clear pictures to help them learn the process.
