Do bears love swimming as much as they love honey sandwiches? Can you act out the story of the alligator and the chicks? This is a lovely collection of simple stories, illustrated by celebrated artist Atsuko Morozumi. Some stories include instructions to "act out" sounds and movements in the story (clapping, making faces) to enhance the reading experience, and a fun die-cut "index" with character pictures allow children to find their favorite story.Atsuko Morozumi's "The Reindeer Christmas" has sold over one hundred thousand copies in the United States. "One Gorilla" (Farrar, Straus and Giroux) was an American Bookseller Pick of the List and a "New York Times" Best Illustrated Children's Book.
