A wonderful, whimsical exploration of various animals in the water and the ways in which children can, and do, mimic them, Whoosh! gets young readers thinking and moving. Each spread features an animal in a watery scene opposite a child mimicking the animal’s activity in some way. From splashing like a dolphin to fishing like a heron, from snoozing like an alligator to hiding like a clownfish, the echoing images bring to life the real ways that animals behave and reveal how there’s a little bit of animal in all of us. The book closes with a Guess What?” section that provides brief and quirky facts about the animals featured throughout. A rebus at the back encourages children to read on their own and discover other ways to get up and move, by scuttling like a crab or waddling like a penguin. With Whoosh! readers will splash through the bright, engaging illustrations into a water-filled world of play and learning.

About the Author:

A former editor of chickaDEE Magazine and the author of numerous books, including Nose to Toes, Animals at the Edge, and Amazing Things Animals Do, she lives in Toronto.

Review:

"Mitchell's bright paintings offer fun visual parallels between animal and child."
Publishers Weekly

"Mitchell cleverly connects left-hand pages, which show animals in their natural environments, to right-hand pages, which re-create the scene with children. ... The multicultural cast of rosy-cheeked kids and the large assortment of everyday and fun activities ensure that readers will relate."
Kirkus Reviews
