St. Patrick’s Day Countdown: Salina Yoon
Countdown from 5 to 1 with the forest friends in this shimmery board book. Five bright green holographic fabric-like shamrock tabs make it especially easy for totz to grab and turn the pages in this book. And it seems sturdy enough to hold up under repeated grabbing. It's a simple, lively, rhyming introduction to St Patrick's Day, and with bunnies, shamrocks, and a pot of gold, it captures the spirit of day.
Salina Yoon is the talented and prolific author-illustrator of numerous books for totz. Also in this five-tab series: Five Silly Turkeys.
