A lively, lilting text by Phyllis Root links with luminous collages by Holly Meade creates a board book perfect for reading aloud to the preschool crowd. When a master of the rhythmic read-aloud joins a Caldecott honor-winning artist to visit baby animals, the result is sure to have little listeners clamoring for more. With a lilting text and luminous collage illustrations, HOP! shows the nonstop antics of five little bunnies, bumping, tumbling, wiggling, twitching, thumping, and lunching.
Phyllis Root has written many award-winning books for children, including TEN SLEEPY SHEEP, OLIVER FINDS HIS WAY, ONE DUCK STUCK, WHAT BABY WANTS, RATTLETRAP CAR, and BIG MOMMA MAKES THE WORLD, winner of the BOSTON GLOBE HORN BOOK Award.
