In the tradition of Richard Scarry, this cleverly conceived first-words picture book is sure to satisfy the youngest readers

Walking outside, we might see
Places we pass, things going fast
Across the street, there might be
Sounds in our ears, music to hear

Against this lively rhyming narrative text, readers will find a splash of first words on each spread, inviting little ones to identify things they might see in their own backyards. And some unexpected things, too!

Spreads are thoughtfully organized to give readers time with different types of words. One spread is full of onomatopoeia. Another full of color words. Another still invites readers to think about scale—big things and small ones. The high-contrast art is married beautifully with lots of detail on each page, giving the youngest readers lots to find and a friendly environment in which to discover something new on every read.

About the author

Charlie Mylie is an author and illustrator living the dream in Kansas City, Missouri. It’s only occurring to him now that his interdisciplinary art degree from Kansas City Art Institute might have actually helped in making children’s books. His wife and toddler, however, have had a significant, obvious impact on his work and life, while the cat has contributed nothing. Mylie wants to keep exploring, for as long as he is allowed, how words and pictures—together—help us making sense of this confounding world.
