Product Description

Join Cassie, the main character from the Caldecott Honor picture book Tar Beach, as she takes us on a tour of her home, neighborhood, and school. Dozens of words are introduced with clear labels throughout. Young readers will love the simple story line, and they'll relish the beautifully designed pages, each with its own quilt motif. This bright, boldly colored book will attract even the youngest lookers, and the words will teach pre-reading skills to slightly older children. For ages 3-6.
