Synopses & Reviews
"This mixed-media board book has an organic, arts-and-crafts quality. Die-cut pages form wavy contours that mimic ripples; inside the 'pond,' attached to the book's last page, is a yellow and orange fabric fish finger puppet. Readers can wiggle the fish as it describes its home: 'In my pond there are shiny stones... lily pads floating on splashy blue water.' The layered pages surrounding the pond and smiling fish have collage-like patterns that range from woven to Chinese type to topographical maps. In all, this book is a delicate gem. In My Nest is also available. Ages 6 mos. 4 yrs." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
Children are sure to love this delightful finger puppet book. Layered die-cut pages allow a peek at all the colorful things that make up each animal's home, and an adorable folk-art style finger puppet make this book that is filled with reading and playtime fun.
