I Know a Lot of Things – Wednesday Morning Storytime at Port Moody

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

First printed in 1973, this reissue of the childhood classic, I Know a Lot of Things, is a celebration of all the new and intriguing knowledge children delight in possessing. Written from the simplicity of a child’s perspective, the plain-but-powerful text voices important childhood knowledge such as “I know when I look in the mirror, what I see is me” and that “dogs go bowwow and that is how they talk.” Illustrated with graphic designer Paul Rand’s colorful, playful artwork, I Know a Lot of Things, with all the teeny nuggets of wisdom contained therein, is destined to please a new generation.

Ann Rand wrote five children’s books including Sparkle and Spin (also available at dandelion KIDS), A Book About Words, four of which were illustrated by her husband. In addition to the four children’s books he illustrated, Paul Rand wrote and co-authored several others, and designed some of the best-known corporate icons of his time, including the logos for ABC, IBM, and UPS.
