In the tradition of Richard Scarry, this cleverly conceived first-words picture book is sure to satisfy the youngest readersWalking outside, we might seePlaces we pass, things going fastAcross the street, there might beSounds in our ears, music to hearAgainst this lively rhyming narrative text, readers will find a splash of first words on each spread, inviting little ones to identify things they might see in their own backyards. And some unexpected things, too! Spreads are thoughtfully organized to give readers time with different types of words. One spread is full of onomatopoeia. Another full of color words. Another still invites readers to think about scale—big things and small ones. The high-contrast art is married beautifully with lots of detail on each page, giving the youngest readers lots to find and a friendly environment in which to discover something new on every read.
