4.25 / 7.0

I love books that make use the combination of words and illustrations to create dramatic irony. My toddler has no idea what dramatic irony is, but she knows she finds it wonderfully silly. The illustrations in this book are cheerful and bright, and the simple premise will appeal to young readers. Parents and kids will have the opportunity to discuss what’s happening on each page as they look at all the things the girl would be seeing if she were looking around.
