What are Splats? Probably just what you think of when you see that word, but with a funny and very creative twist by Simon Crack, author of the enjoyable children’s book, Splats. When you think “splat” you might picture, heaven forbid, a bird splatting on you as it flies overhead. Or you might envision a small bucket of paint thrown at a wall. When either happens, you end up with a splat that drips and dries into unusual shapes. But what Simon Crack does with a dried splat is add a few lines, squiggles, eyes, nose, ears, or whatever to a brightly colored splat and hey, presto…creatures like splarks, splooges, splogs and more now tickle our imaginations and make us smile regardless of age. What a wonderful bit of fun, especially for children.
I found myself really enjoying looking at the shapes in Splats. Occasionally, I even covered up the names and descriptions supplied by the author to see if what I thought of when I looked at a bright orange, green or purple splat matched what Simon decided it was. Imagine doing the same with your youngster: there’s no limit to what young minds would “see” when they looked at a splat! To let youngsters do just that, Simon Crack has left a couple of unidentified splats at the end of the book. What will your youngster decide they are? What squiggles will they add to their splat? If you visit www.splats.org, you can learn more about Simon Crack’s Splats books. Yes, there are several of them to provide both adults and children with hours of creative fun.
