Anyone a else Mo Willems Fan? à Children's Literature (Mai 2015)


A mix up of bunny stuffies leads two preschool aged children to become best friends. Preschoolers are developmentally still egocentric and learning how to be a friend.

A densely rhyming tale of a little frog called Nanette and a day she won't soon forget - she gets to get the baguette herself! But when she eats it on the way home (it is warm and wonderful and smells/tastes so good, after all), will Mom be upset? (Spoiler alert: not at all! "Let's reset." Mom is no stranger to eating a baguette on the way home...)

Are you big? A hot air balloon is big...a cloud is big...a storm is big... Each "big" thing is dwarfed by its successor, until the question returns: Are YOU big? To a bug, you are! It's all about perspective.

Perfect for toddler/preschool storytimes!
