some of these are snails
Press Here meets Eric Carle in a concept book that makes familiar ideas exciting and surprising.
From the creative mind behind Circle Under Berry comes this deceptively simple concept book exploring sorting, comparatives, and quantifiers that teases the brain, twists expectations, and teaches basic concepts in unusual ways. As with the best classic children's books, you read it once, read it ten times-and see something new every time. With an elegant and simple approach, this enigmatic, thought-provoking picture book shows young readers that everything in the world can be seen from infinite perspectives.
“A whimsical romp.” — Kirkus Reviews
“[P]olished follow-up to Circle Under Berry…accessible concept-based images and text promise wide read-and-respond appeal.” — Publishers Weekly
★ “Ideal as a read-aloud, this should have wide appeal: lap-sit toddlers will enjoy the sing-song verses, preschoolers will focus on the shape and color concepts, kindergartners will learn simple ways to draw animals, and emergent readers will appreciate the predictable text.” — Booklist
“Higgins’s companion to Circle Under Berry invites an encore exploration of shapes, colors, counting, and creatures with a healthy dose of rhythmic fun and conceptual play… Subsequent rereadings will reinforce the message that there’s never simply one way to look at things.” — The Horn Book
★ “It all makes for an utterly delightful, visually rich package. . . . Best of all, [readers will] learn to see the world and its patterns in eye-opening ways. Some of These Are Snails is a must-have for every young reader’s bookshelf.” —Book Page, starred review
“Carter Higgins has created another treat for little children with “Some of These Are Snails…a terrific one to put into the nightly rotation.” — The Wall Street Journal
