Don't

Written by: Trochatos, Litsa
Illustrated by: Johnson, Virginia
ages 0 to 3 / grades P and up

This cleverly conceived board book appeals to a young child’s sense of fun while providing facts about different animals. A series of impossible but delightful-to-imagine cautionary statements are followed by informative explanations:

Don’t take a bath with a pig.
It loves wallowing in the mud.

Don’t start a food fight with an octopus.
It has six more arms than you do.

The simplicity and humor in the text and watercolor illustrations will make this book a story-time favorite.
