This follow-up to Simms Taback's Safari Animals presents six city animals in a guessing-game format: a pigeon, a police horse, a squirrel, a dog, a cat, a swan--all poster-size illustrations in Taback's one-of-a-kind style.
This deceptively simple, excitingly illustrated board book is based on a telling theme — that every animal has its own distinct sound. The text is perfectly targeted to the youngest children, who will thoroughly enjoy lifting the flaps and imitating the animals' sounds. The sumptuously colorful illustrations are sure to catch the rapt attention of the smallest child.
Max’s dog, Puppy, is lost! She was here, and now she’s gone. Where can Puppy be? Max can’t sleep! Max can’t eat! He calls for her, plasters posters all over town, and searches everywhere for his beloved pet. It’s not until both Max and Puppy have the same idea that they finally find each other. Acclaimed artist Noah Woods makes his Blue Apple Books debut with a story that vividly and sympathetically captures Ziefert’s tale of a lost pup and the boy who’s determined to find him.
Caldecott Medal winner Simms Taback's vibrant illustrations and Harriet Ziefert's rhythmic text will have young readers waddling, wiggling, swaying, and swooping with delight. The animals in Wiggle Like an Octopus are ready for a dip in the sea. This sturdy board book with lenticular artwork on the cover will get kids on their feet and keep them moving.
Not every dog can paint a masterpiece!
Louie loves watching his young master paint, and when the boy puts his finishing touches on a particularly good self-portrait, Louie barks enthusiastically. One day, when the boy is at school, Louie tries his own paw at painting a still life. Is this purely an accident, or is Louie a “genius,” just like his master? Children will delight in Barroux’s whimsical illustrations of Louie dipping his nose and paws into colorful paint.
