It Looked Like Spilt Milk
Author(s) & Illustrator(s): Charles G. Shaw
Edition: Paperback -- Plot Summary and Book Review
- "It Looked Like Spilt Milk" by Charles G. Shaw is an imaginative classic children's book. Young readers can see a white shape against the blue background on each page. Sometimes it looks like spilt milk, but it isn't spilt milk. Sometimes it looks like a rabbit, a bird, a tree, an ice cream cone and other familiar things, but it isn't what it looks like. The picture book keeps children guessing until the last page, where they find out that it is a cloud in the sky. Simple words and repetitive patterns make the book easy to read and remember. The guessing game encourages creative thinking. "It Looked Like Spilt Milk" is a good book for older toddlers and preschoolers.
