Description
Whoosh! by Marilyn Baillie
A wonderful, whimsical exploration of various animals in the water and the ways in which children can, and do, mimic them, "Whoosh " gets young readers thinking and moving. Each spread features an animal in a watery scene opposite a child mimicking the animal's activity in some way. From splashing like a dolphin to fishing like a heron, from snoozing like an alligator to hiding like a clownfish, the echoing images bring to life the real ways that animals behave -- and reveal how there's a little bit of animal in all of us. The book closes with a "Guess What?" section that provides brief and quirky facts about the animals featured throughout. A rebus at the back encourages children to read on their own and discover other ways to get up and move, by scuttling like a crab or waddling like a penguin. With "Whoosh " readers will splash through the bright, engaging illustrations into a water-filled world of play and learning.
