Slither Slide, What's Outside?

"Slosh from the big one into the small. Whooshing and slooshing-your own waterfall."
When young children observe the natural world, what do they see? Very often, it's an inspiration for creative play. As in Nora Hilb's previous book, WIGGLE GIGGLE TICKLE TRAIN, 13 vibrant spreads show how children use the world around them to come up with ideas for play. Striking real-life photographs of waterfalls, worms, and wintry roads are juxtaposed with lively drawings to reveal a child's own inventive interpretation. Short bursts of action-packed poetry encourage preschoolers to identify patterning in text and the sounds associated with ideas.

The sight of a beautiful rainbow is reflected in multihued crayons as two children create their own masterpieces. The sound of noisy geese flying south sets the stage for a concert with bugle and horn. And imitating a frog leads to a game of jumping over logs. 

(C's review) I kind of liked this book, It was about weather and seasons and animals. I didn't like some of the pictures, they looked like drawings and real pictures. I think they should include the kids names so it is more like a story. Like when you read other books you know the kids names. my favorite picture was the where they are scraping the snow. I really like the snow!

(Mom's Comments) I thought that was a really cute book, it is a bit young for a first grader, but would be a great read for a 3-4 year old, and really good for learning about the flow of nature and seasons. It was a bit confusing to go from illustrations to photographs. But at least the alignment of them was clear!
