In the Half Room

We rated this book:


Everyone is searching for their other half. The last piece of a tea set, another shoe, or even a person that you fit with. This book takes a literal perspective of what it really means to find the perfect half.

In this short picture book, Carson Ellis describes a room as being filled with only “half” things. Such as a “half chair” or a “half rug”. This repetitive adventure comes to a close when the “half girl” and “half cat” meet their other halves for the first time. Some kids may find the pictures of half a cat disturbing, but it will raise some good scientific questions about what you can cut apart!

Younger kids will enjoy listening to the playful rhyming and will soon catch on the natural flow of the story. I can see this book on a four to eight-year-old reading list. Perhaps read out loud in a classroom or for a bedtime story. If you are searching for something to complete you, then this is the book to read.
