What Is Part This Part That Cvr

What is Part This, Part That?

What kind of song is part talk and part sing? Rap! And can you guess what's part buzz and - ouch! - part sting? Songlike rhyme inspires kids to think about the parts that make up the sum of various things, actions, and concepts. Tom Slaughter's pop-meets-elegant collage art and punch-bright pages invite kids to enter into this entertaining conversation about the parts, the sum, and the whole marvelous mix of things we see, have, and do. Ideal for inviting critical and creative thinking, and for group and one-on-one discussion, What is Part This, Part That? continues the Blue Apple tradition of books that are part eye-catching, part mind-captivating, and all for kids!


Pig Wig Cvr Hi Res

Flip-a-word: Pig Wig

Can you dig a pig in a wig? How'd that pet get so wet? Will Pop stop or will he hop? Flip a page and watch a bun and a a kid on a run turn into a sun and a kid having fun! With bright art done in the Japanese anime style, each of these early reading books features a different word family. When kids flip the die-cut pages, they get a new word and image within that word family. Word families help children recognize similarities between words that rhyme, and help them connect words with similar long or short vowel sounds. This familiarity helps kids read a word they don't necessarily know.
