What Is Part This, Part That?
Song-like rhyming text invites readers to guess what different components add up to. For example, a secret's part whisper, part keeping mum, and a certain kind of fruit is part peach and part plum (a nectarine). When you're on the equator you're part south and part north, and a certain kind of chair is part back and part forth (a rocking chair). The collage art further expresses the concept that, from stones to sticks, the world is indeed a marvelous mix.
Flip-a-Word: Pig Wig
Can you dig a pig in a wig? How'd that pet get so wet? Will Pop stop or will he hop? Flip a page and watch a bun and a a kid on a run turn into a sun and a kid having fun! With bright art done in the Japanese anime style, each of these early reading books features a different word family. When kids flip the die-cut pages, they get a new word and image within that word family. Word families help children recognize similarities between words that rhyme, and help them connect words with similar long or short vowel sounds. This familiarity helps kids read a word they don't necessarily know.
Where is My Baby?
This deceptively simple, excitingly illustrated board book is based on a telling theme - that baby animals are known by names quite different from their parents (cow and calf, goat and kid). The text is perfectly targeted to the youngest children, who will thoroughly enjoy lifting the flaps and matching the baby animals to their mothers. The sumptuously colorful illustrations are sure to catch the rapt attention of the smallest child.
Illus. in full color. A dog and his pet cat share good-night kisses and playful dreams until morning wakes them, in this bedtime story for youngest beginning readers.
