A cuter-than-puppies companion to Little Sleepyhead

Little bitty chipmunks,
chattering all the day,

Little bitty ladybug
always comes to play.

Marching with ants, snuggling with baby rabbits, reaching for the sun with happy buttercups-young children form special bonds with nature's little creations.

Lyrical verse and charming capture an enchanted world of little bitty friends.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This gentle rhyming book, featuring a racially diverse collection of small children, highlights the fascination children feel for creatures even smaller than themselves. The cover illustration sets the tone: a child lies on the grass, gazing at a little, smiling turtle. The softly smudged pencil and mixed-media illustrations focus on both action and observation. For example, the first double-page-spread illustration shows a boy taking little bitty steps on a path while watching a line of ants marching on the grass beside him. The next spread shows a young girl contemplating a caterpillar crawling up her knee. Little ones notice chattering chipmunks, a curious snail, and a ladybug that has alighted on one of their foreheads. The little bitty repetition ends as a father picks up his son, who is snoozing next to a sleeping puppy, and gives him a giant, giant hug. Engaging artwork underscores a valuable message about the joys of close observation. This author and illustrator team's Little Sleepyhead (2015) would make a nice companion book.--Fletcher, Connie Copyright 2016 Booklist"
