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.

MULTIPLE WAYS TO READ / PACKED LEARNING VALUE: Higgins has provided creative and helpful suggestions for different ways in which to read this book for varying reading levels and age ranges, making it truly versatile. The unusual combination of colors, shapes, and animals intelligently introduces young readers to patterns, classification, and problem solving. The imaginative language, rich with rhythmic phrasing and a tongue twister-like playfulness, creates a text that begs to be read aloud and is perfect for individual or group engagement.

WIDE APPEAL FOR SCHOOL AND LIBRARY USE: Carter Higgins presents engaging learning with a variety of concepts. With its clear read-aloud qualities, this is ideal for teachers and librarians who organize reading events in the classroom and around their communities.

TALENTED AUTHOR: Carter Higgins has many successful titles, including Circle Under Berry, Everything You Need for a Treehouse, This is Not a Valentine, Bikes for Sale, Big and Small and In-Between, and Audrey L and Audrey W, appealing to readers and listeners across a range of ages.

UNIQUE DESIGN: The art style for this book, with playful nods to Eric Carle and Herve Tullet, feels instantly recognizable in a way that will resonate with children as well as adults.
