Sidewalk Circus Presented by Paul Fleischman and Kevin Hawkes Hardcover: 32 pages Publisher .

An enchanting and humorous picture book. This is a picture book that leaves you with a big smile on your face. I have loved Sherman Alexie's work up to this point, and Thunder Boy Jr. Is icing on the cake. This has all of the qualities of a classic story like Goodnight Moon and is destined to be a modern classic, with youngsters wanting repeated readings.

My kids just love this book. One of our favorites. The art is wonderful and well executed. This book always gets raves when I share it at my kids school for lunch bunch.

The book tells the story without words and through the pictures. Very creative.

The story teaches the lesson of observation as it turns an ordinary street and wait for the bus into a circus.

cute story

The artwork is the star in this wordless book about a child who sees the everyday activities of the people in her town but imagines them as the stars in a "shadow circus." Can provide lots of opportunities for parent/child conversations about the many things going on in the pictures. Nice choice for 3-6 year-olds.

This book uses shadows of real life scenes that become circus characters as a child anticipates the coming event. It's an apt exploration of a child's imagination, and would work well in a circus unit to discuss characters and expand vocabulary for a primary class.
Kelerana
These two books were in perfect condition.
ME
A standalone picture book for children that will make you see things from a different perspective.

My Take
This is very clever! Fleischman and Hawkes sucker you right in with the promise of the circus coming to town…and then tease with that sly comment about the performers perhaps being here already, as they slide you into the old city neighborhood of skateboarders, window washers, guys doing construction, deliverymen, cooks…all the everyday people in the neighborhood.

Admittedly Fleischman/Hawkes have taken some liberties with those shadow thrust up against the walls, but I gotta give ‘em credit for their imaginations. Even with those minor tweaks.

It’s kind of a Where’s Waldo for you and the kids to find the shadows and interpret them. Encourage the kids to see the differences AND the similarities. Stimulate those imaginations.

There are no words, other than shop signs, the marquee announcing the circus, and the posters the old man is pasting up. Instead, it’s a visual feast to tease the mind.

The Story
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls! Step right up and witness an astounding assemblage of tightrope walkers, strong men, sword swallowers, and clowns.

The Garibaldi Circus is coming soon — but for those with clear eyes, the performers may already be in the ring. So get ready to sharpen your vision, and look very closely.

A show like you’ve never seen is about to begin!

The Cover and Title
I’ve always loved the transformative magic of shadow puppets, and this cover is a perfect example with the gigantic shadow of a top-hatted ringmaster shouting into his megaphone projected on to that huge yellow and orange brick wall…all coming from a little old man with a white mustache, a long-billed baseball cap, overalls, and a red check shirt, holding a rolled-up poster in his hand. Right next to a sidewalk cart piled with posters. With shocking indifference, three pigeons are tapping away at the pavement. The title and illustrators' names are all at the bottom in a pale yellow against the deep brown-gray of the roadway.

The title is a totally different way of looking at the life around you, the Sidewalk Circus that performs in every town, city, and neighborhood.

NOTHING! Paul Fleischman has created a story about imagination, about seeing the ordinary world around you with new eyes. It's a story about what COULD be, and about transcending what IS. Kevin Hawkes has given visual life to Mr. Fleischman's concept. It's a book which shows that children still have the capacity to see the world as a place of possibilities, while the adults nearby are oblivious to the wonderful circus of events taking place around them. This book is a masterpiece.

After reading the other reviews posted for this delightful book, I can only observe that those who wrote them are like the adults in this book. As a society, we are accustomed to being entertained out the wazoo. We are passive observers, waiting for someone to "show us a good time." Mr. Fleischman's book takes me back to that time in my life when all I required to have a good time was a summer afternoon and back yard. My imagination supplied the rest. Sidewalk Circus is a great book to help you take out your imagination and dust it off. Buy it today.
This book is very successful in linking real world to circus. I think the idea is just wonderful, and the illustrations are exquisite.

The authors show that if we only open our eyes to every-day people, we will see how skillful they are in their jobs. It shows, for example, how a food carrier could be a STRONGMAN in the circus, and how a window cleaner could be a trapezist.

I really agree with the idea, I think the circus is so great because it is a place where we open our eyes and our minds to the human abilities. I believe the book represents Emerson's phrase on his Nature essay: "Nature wears the colors of the spirit."

So if you want your children (and yourself) to start watching and acting in the world, instead of seeing it, this book is a good beginning.
