Description

This innovative flip-format picture book is a sequel to the best-selling and CBCA Notable Book for 2017, Smile Cry. Piglet, Bunny and Cat return in a charming, whimsical sensory adventure. It will encourage kids to explore the multitude of ways they can engage with the world around them, particularly via the senses of sight and sound.

From watching ‘squiggly rain’ on a window to pointing out ‘heavenly horses’ in the clouds; from hearing ‘buzzing blossoms’ as bees collect pollen and nectar to ‘hot pan sizzles’ as a favourite meal is prepared, <i>See Hear</i> invites us to open our eyes and ears to the everyday magic that surrounds us. Follow Piglet, Bunny and Cat on their adventure and learn to experience the world in new and exciting ways.

Beautifully designed and put together, with a heart-warming focus on friendship, See Hear is a delight for, well, the senses. Younger kids will respond to the soft, whimsical illustrations, while older readers will enjoy the onomatopoeic wordplay. Perfect for ages 3 and upwards, this is a book that will captivate children and parents alike.
