Imagine a green, friendly backyard world filled with animals. Visualize the mind of a preschool child exploring that environment, eager to learn the names of everything.

This series of illustrations called "Who am I?", was created for the inquisitive minds of very young children. The featured animals are portrayed in natural settings with an affectionate, soft realism.


Each double page spread features one creature on the left, with hints of the the next creature to be revealed on the right . . . see the squirrel hidden in the leaves on the right?

 

 

There the squirrel is! On the next page with her babies.

I wonder who is bold and blue? Turn the page and you'll find out!

 
 

Also included in the illustrations are an additional 35 creatures providing another layer of discovery for the curious Preschool to Grade One child.

Below is a sample of what one page of a picture glossary might look like at the end of the book.
