Synopsis

Little Bitty Friends by Elizabeth McPike

From the creators of Little Sleepyhead comes a book that celebrates young children's wonder and curiosity as they explore the natural world. Toddlers make friends with animals of all shapes and sizes and interact with them in clever ways: marching alongside a row of ants, cuddling with a baby bunny, flying with the birds. After making lots of little bitty friends, the action winds down as everyone gets ready for a nap. Readers will be inspired to explore the backyard or the park and make little bitty friends of their own!

Reviews

-A terrific choice to encourage children (and their hovering adults) to discover the wonders of the world around them. . . . Adorable babies and toddlers are shown observing, mimicking, and/or tenderly handling a furry caterpillar, buttercups, a baby bird, and a bitty snail. The repetitive words and sweet images capture this enchanted world of discovery.---School Library Journal-This gentle rhyming book, featuring a racially diverse collection of small children, highlights the fascination children feel for creatures even smaller than themselves. . . . Engaging artwork underscores a valuable message about the joys of close observation.---Booklist
