Look! It's a book!

Starring a brother and sister who go to the zoo, see kangaroos and baboons, and get to bring home balloons! Told entirely in words that contain a double o, this playful story is a great choice for emerging readers.

Bright illustrations and an engaging, interactive text will invite repeated readings. Hooray!

A brother and sister can't wait to go to the zoo, where they have an exciting day ahead full of food, balloons, baboons, and so much more. This playful concept-and-story book is ideal for new readers.

Author-illustrator Fiona Woodcock's spare text uses only words containing double o's, an important concept for early literacy. Each word is cleverly woven into stunning illustrations. And it all ends with a bedtime book, of course. Good night!

MEDIA REVIEWS
"With bright...illustration, Fiona Woodcock draws children's attention to the surprising frequency of double-o's in Look. ...[a] cheerful picture book." -- Wall Street Journal
"Woodcock creates art that feels hand-crafted, warm, and extremely appealing. ...each spread [creates] its own tableau within a loose narrative structure. ...A delightful exploration of a thematic concept, exceptionally designed and thoroughly charming." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Clever and eye-catching...With its satisfying narrative arc and imaginative wordplay, this picture book is pretty cool." -- The Horn Book
"This picture-book compendium of words with double oo's finds visual fun in the letters' shapes...made with hand-cut stencils and printing techniques, burst with playful energy...the scenes create an appealing visual game that will encourage kids to think about word patterns and, perhaps, draw their own spin-offs." -- Publishers Weekly
"The ingenious story line becomes clear after just a few pages. ...Laid out on expansive light backgrounds, the artwork invites young readers to look and look again. Playful fun, this engaging read-aloud will be welcome in most collections." -- School Library Journal
"Bright colors and simple shapes make Look delightfully appealing and cheerful, while its lights-out ending makes it an ideal bedtime book. Look is full of easy-to-learn sight words for beginning readers, and it will also find a home in classrooms. ...Even nonreaders can keep up with this book's straightforward plot." -- BookPage
"A picture book that takes as its text more than 30 words containing two consecutive Os sounds like breezy entertainment, but Fiona Woodcock's art is worth a close inspection. ...Look is a toothsome and groovy book. Understood?" -- Shelf Awareness (starred review)
