Itsy Bitsy Animals by Margaret Wild, Jan Ormerod


Itsy Bitsy Animals by Margaret Wild, Jan Ormerod

This is an enchanting picture book from popular Australian children's author Margaret Wild. These itsy-bitsy elephants hold each other's tails. Those itsy-bitsy ducklings go looking for snails. With its menagerie of frolicking kittens, ducklings, and baby creatures of all kinds, this picture book is an introduction to animal stories and an exploration of the delight of being small, and a perfect way of introducing young children to animals. An ideal read-aloud book for toddlers and a must-have companion to Itsy-Bitsy Babies.


Full of warmth and fun, appealing visuals and gentle humor, this is a marvelous book to read while gently bouncing a baby or young child on your knee. -- Kirkus Reviews on Itsy-Bitsy Babies
