Do lions live on lily pads? No, but frogs do!
Do guinea pigs live in webs? No, but spiders do!
Do crocodiles live in shells? No, but . . .
Toddlers learn all about where animals liveand where they don’tin this latest book from Melanie Walsh. Adorable illustrations and engaging text keep children guessing what comes next. A silly book for silly readers.
Tap in to your little one's love affair with the word "no" by asking this rib-tickling series of silly questions. "Is this the nest of a goat?" reads one spread, in which a billy goat perches absurdly in a bird's nest. After your child's predictably exuberant reply, turn the page to see a more plausible resident: a small gray bird. Walsh's vibrant, clean-lined paintings of a giraffe, guinea pig, fish, and more, all in their natural and unnatural habitats, will hold children's attention while teaching plenty about where animals live-and don't. (Ages Birth to 2)
