Honk, Honk! Baa, Baa! by Petr Horacek
Love this simple, straightforward lift-the-flap book. With the introduction of smaller and smaller barnyard animals, each page reduces in size (the flaps), until unexpectedly, the final spread utilizes all the previous cutaways to portray a cow. A fun surprise!
Of course Petr's art is fresh with a great, free pencil line, resist work, textured backgrounds, and splotches of bright color. All age totz will respond to this timeless board book.
Have fun sounding out each of the animals!
