From the creator of the Mole Sisters comes a charming, humorous picture book for toddlers. Roslyn Schwartz plugs right into the world of preschoolers. She understands how to make them laugh out loud and how to set their imaginations soaring. In this timeless story of identity, follow Butterfly and Giraffe, Handsome Hound and Big Hairy Ape, Baby and others as they embark on their voyage of discovery.
Open the book and "Yo Baby!" appears above the stem of a large green leaf... on which sits a regal butterfly. "I'm not a baby! I'm a..." Turn the page and there a small butterfly flits in the air above the word "BUTTERFLY" in large, bold type. Swinging gently onto this page from the one opposite is the tail of a long-legged animal, who says, "I'm not a butterfly! I'm a..."
And so the voyage of discovery continues.
This simple story will engage and delight young children, as they are invited to guess the identity of the mystery object in the picture or anticipate the patterning as they "read" along. Each page flows beautifully into the next as the characters and objects turn out to be cleverly interlinked, building momentum as the book progresses. At the end of the story, children, like Baby, will be the captain of their own literacy boat as they sail through the vocabulary, matching pictures and words
