Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Button is late -

late, late, late.

Missed the bus to school,

on this day of all days.

Everyone else who makes up the class -

Feathers, Strings,

Springs, Rings,

Pom-Poms, Yarns,

and Wheely Things -

they're all inside,

getting themselves together.

Getting ready for the teacher,

the camera,

the wide-angle moment.

But wait...

wait, wait, wait...

Button's not the only one late!

Synopsis:

An annual event in every elementary school classroom is the taking of the group portrait. In this imaginative book, the kids are buttons, feathers, and grommets, and are a disheveled lot until Glue sorts them out. Full color.
