“OK Go” is a book full of interesting, whimsical collages. She states at the end that “The collages in this book are made with recycled materials: found papers, magazine, ticket stubs, old letters, and newspapers were used in the art.” My children enjoyed looking at all of the different patterns and details and spent a long time exploring the book. The text is simply the word “Go!” for the first part of the book, but then everything comes to an abrupt halt and alternatives and greener ways of living are presented. My children liked the art in the book so much that they now want to make collages of their own out of old magazines, etc.
Cayden: “The pictures in this book are really cool. I want to take some things out of the paper recycling bin and cut it up to make some pictures. That would be fun! I liked the stuff they said to do in the book. We do a lot of it already. I want to look at the pictures some more!”
Max: “I liked the pictures of the cars with the people and dogs in them. I want to make some too!”
“OK Go” by Carin Berger is a fun read.
