Stephen Gammell’s book, Mudkin, follows a young girl as she heads out to play after the rain. It’s a testament to the imagination and creativity unleashed by the opportunity for a child to play with good, old-fashioned mud. Text is limited in the book, only occurring on a few pages. However, in my opinion, the book would be better off without any text at all. It’s merely distracting from the gorgeous water color illustrations. This is a wonderful book to look at with your young child and let them be the storyteller.
