Banana Skin Chaos

This hilarious story, told almost entirely without words, is a clever and creative look at how one thoughtless action (in this case, dropping a banana skin on the ground instead of disposing of it responsibly) could potentially set off a domino-like chain of increasingly chaotic consequences. Every time a page is turned, the scene becomes increasingly detailed and complex; with at least half a dozen separately developing plot lines to identify and discuss. There’s a helpful list of questions at the end of the book, which might be an interesting challenge for particularly perceptive preschoolers - but one of the great joys of books like these is the way that they enable meaningful interaction at whatever level is appropriate.
