It is always a WONDERFUL day when Ame Dyckman takes over my my blog. Thank you, Ame! :)
There’s a LOT for a Wee Beastie (a baby, toddler, or preschooler) to learn. Not just their ABCs and 1-2-3s. But also…
The SOCIAL stuff!
That’s why I’m collaborating with Simon & Schuster’s Little Simon and illustrator Alex G. Griffiths on a fun new board book series of social behaviors for Wee Beasties called—
(PERFECT title, right?)
In each WEE BEASTIES board book, an adorable animal pal hilariously… GOOFS!
In HUGGY THE PYTHON HUGS TOO HARD, Huggy the Python forgets to be gentle. In ROARY THE LION ROARS TOO LOUD, Roary the Lion forgets to use his inside voice. (Yes, I wrote a book about being quiet. Y’ALL CAN QUIT LAUGHIN’ NOW!) And so on!
After they laugh, YOUR baby/toddler/preschooler Wee Beastie gets to teach the animal pal in their book the correct social behavior and watch the results!
(Then YOU get to watch the results, too!)
On Mr. Schu’s Watch. Connect. Read. today, we have the Official Cover Reveals of HUGGY and ROARY!
BEHOLD Alex’s AWESOME artness!
