Collaboration playfully explores the various ways we work and play with one another and the world around us.

Love this book! Beautiful, soft and fluid watercolor illustrations that appeal to kids and adults alike. Love the concrete and conceptual examples of collaboration in both languages. Allows adults to see world as children and educate kids on the value of working together. Great book for your library or a gift for a parent or educator.
