Whoosh!

A Watery World of Wonderful Creatures
Marilyn Baillie

This 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. Ages 3 to 7.
