Something Beginning with Blue by Sally Symes


Something Beginning with Blue by Sally Symes

I spy with my little eye, something beginning with blue...and green...and brown. Peep through the pages, and see what you can see. Colourful and fun with Nick Sharratt's bold bright illustrations, this is a simple novelty book for the very young. With lively rhyming read-aloud text, little children will love guessing what's hiding over the page.
