About the book:
Meet Little Panda. He's awake and ready for adventure. Where will his feet take him? Do they walk a normal walk down a normal street? Or will they find a new way to carry him through the day?
Maybe a tree branch can be a shaky bridge. A sandbox a desert. A bath an underwater adventure. Maybe little feet can go anywhere. . . . There's a whole world to explore!
Young children will see themselves in Little Panda and find inspiration in Little Panda's big steps.
My thoughts on the book:
I fell in love with Birgitta Sif's work when I read her book, Oliver. There was something wonderful and quirky about it and I really liked her artistic style.
Sif's recent book is Where My Feet Go about a young panda and the adventures he goes on throughout the day. Though the main character is a young panda bear, young children will relate to each of the places panda goes with his feet.
There is an element of imagination that winds throughout the pages of the book. Tall mountains, an ocean, a creaking bridge, a trip to the moon have their roots in very common every day activities as portrayed in the illustrations.
Young children will enjoy this read aloud at any time of day, and will look forward to multiple read throughs.
