SLITHER SLIDE WHAT'S OUTSIDE?

Author: Nora Hilb
Category: Children's
Publisher: Annick Press
Cover Type: Paperback
Description:

Slosh from the big one into the small. Whooshing and slooshing--your own waterfall.

When young children observe the natural world, what do they see? Very often, it's an inspiration for creative play. In this sequel of WIGGLE GIGGLE TICKLE TRAIN, 13 vibrant spreads show how children use the world around them to come up with ideas for play. Striking real-life photographs of waterfalls, worms, and wintry roads are juxtaposed with lively drawings to reveal a child's own inventive interpretation. Short bursts of action-packed poetry encourage preschoolers to identify patterning in text and the sounds associated with ideas.

The sight of a beautiful rainbow is reflected in multihued crayons as two children create their own masterpieces. The sound of noisy geese flying south sets the stage for a concert with bugle and horn. And imitating a frog leads to a game of jumping over logs.

While developing language skills, kids can create their own imaginative play from what they see in nature.

Reviews

“The language chosen will add to a toddler's repertoire, the photos spark imagination and the very specific highlighted endings to each rhyming couplet will encourage movement and further discovery. Could we possibly ask more of a 32 page picture book? Nope, it is perfect just as it is!

As in Nora Hilb's previous book, Wiggle Giggle Tickle Train, 13 vibrant spreads show how children use the world around them to come up with ideas for play. Striking real-life photographs of waterfalls, worms, and wintry roads are juxtaposed with lively drawings to reveal a child's own inventive interpretation. Short bursts of action-packed poetry encourage preschoolers to identify patterning in text and the sounds associated with ideas.
