The second I saw Wumbers I knew my boy
would enjoy it. Instead of a story,
Wumbers combines words and numbers.
In any book, my son focuses on
the individual words or phrases,
and sometimes the page or chapter
And that's all this picture book has,
phrases with words and numbers.
Billed as a book and a game,
Amy Krouse Rosenthal replaces
letters with numbers to make words
with illustrations by Tom Lichtenheld.
The game part is you can do this too.
Here’s what my boy says -
“It’s funny. ‘Alice in 1derland. Comedy 2night’”
I challenged him to come up with his own wumbers:
“2day is some1 special’s early birthday.
Have you read the story
‘Back to School’ b4?
I don’t ∅ my favorite part.”
