Large two page spreads -K-2 read aloud. Adults will like art more so than kids. My kids want real photos of animals not hand drawn. But the art style is unique and colorful. Would be a good mentor text for an elementary art unit? Might be a good teamwork building read aloud for grade 3-5 teachers and students.
