Dummy by Leslie Patricelli


Dummy by Leslie Patricelli

One of two appealing new storybooks for the very young about a toddler's favourite companions. Following her series of concept board books about opposites, Leslie Patricelli is back with these colourful, simple narratives, each dealing with a subject very dear to a toddler's heart: blanket and dummy. With an art style that is at once simple and sophisticated, these books are toddler-friendly and very funny. Superbly illustrated board books in Leslie Patricelli's bright art style.

About the Author

Leslie Patricelli was motivated to create these books by her children. Talking to and watching my young children all day gave me a voice and inspiration for these books. I write down what I say to them and what they say to me, she says. Leslie lives in Seattle, Washington, with her husband and two children.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
