Off We Go!Unknown - 2000
"Tip-toe, tippity toe Hip-hop, hippity hop Dig-deep, diggity deep Slither-slee, slithery slee Scritch-scratch, scritchity scratch Creep-crawl, creepity crawl" Join Little Mouse, Little Frog, Little Mole, Little Snake, and other baby critters as they creep, scritch, and slither their way to their respective Grandmas' houses. Jane Yolen, award-winning author of many books for young people, including Beneath the Ghost Moon: A Halloween Tale (also illustrated by Laurel Molk), has a knack for creating simple, magical tales of immense appeal to children. Molk's exquisite watercolors, with splashes of green following the frogs, and splotches of red-brown where the moles are digging, are full-page works of art. Young readers will want to climb right into the pages to slither with Little Snake and scritch-scratch with Little Duck. Subtle details, from the tiny flies evading Little Frog's tongue to the lichen-covered rocks under Little Spider's web, add plenty of visual interest to this charming read-aloud.
