What's In Your Purse? by Abigail Samoun with illustrations by Nathalie Dion - Book Review

Publisher's Synopsis: "From compacts to wallets, passports to planners, and cell phones to sunglasses, mommy, grandma, auntie, and sister’s pocketbooks have to carry it all. Featuring a snap closure and a portable handle, this novelty book collects five purses in one and allows young readers to lift the flaps and peek inside to find the tote-ally terrific treasures each woman carries—it’s the perfect accessory for budding fashionistas!"

My Thoughts: What's in Your Purse?  is a cute concept. Not my area of expertise, but I remember my own daughter's fascination with my purse and think this would have been a hit thirty years ago. The leading questions ask the reader to make inferences about why each object is in character's purse. Adults could expand upon these toward fantastic inferential conversations (evidence-based text for the preschool set = Common Core thought processes) where the child would have to use the objects to expound further. To top it off, the little carry handle will make this a totable favorite.
