Jonathan And His Mommy

2 items left

Step out with Jonathan and his mother as they go on a wonderful walk through the streets and parks of their city. And this is no ordinary walk! As Jonathan and Mommy enjoy the beautiful day, they take zigzag steps and giant steps, itsy-bitsy baby steps and hip-hop bunny steps, fast-running steps and slow-motion steps. They do ballet steps, crazy crisscross steps, and reggae steps. Then they take backward steps, moving back past the familiar places until their regular Jonathan-and-Mommy steps take them home again. Perfect for sharing, one-on-one or with a group, Irene Smalls-Hectors simple picture book is a poetic ode to the rituals of a loving mother-child relationship. Michael Hays’s soft pastel illustrations capture the warmth of a happy day spent outside, while evoking the myriad sights and sounds of its multiethnic urban setting.
