Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

and#160;
Recognizing and labeling animals has never been so geometrically inspired! Young children will delight in the usual suspects (bunny, pig, frog, chicken, monkey, and lion) depicted in a whole new way. The elements of each zoomed-in face provide only a subtle hint of the animalsand#8217; identities, inviting children (and adults!) to stretch the boundaries of what defines an animal image. The simple question-and-answer format provides immediate gratification for even the shortest attention spans.

Praise for Up Close

STARRED REVIEW

"Wegerif does a remarkable job of capturing each creatureand#8217;s essence in a few simple shapes and bright nursery colors."

and#151;Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The text, written in a clear, blocky type, encourages a guessing game."

and#151;Kirkus Reviews

"In this inventive board book, colorful, abstract illustrations invite young listeners to participate in a guessing game. Recommended with extra enthusiasm for its ingenuity and high-quality art."

and#151;School Library Journal

Synopsis:

What better place for naptime than a grand pirate ship on the high seas? Two boys use their imaginations to turn everyday objects, from a white bandanna to yellow coins to a red blanket, into colorful pirate treasure as they prepare for naptime. With a bouncy rhymed text and fun illustrations, this charming book teaches little ones their colors while making a great read-aloud. Even the youngest readers and listeners will want to be a part of the fun as they get ready to sail off to sleep!

As their adventure winds down, boys and little sister settle inand#160;together toand#160;dream of more loot andand#160;exotic lands to explore.
