Description

A charming summer story that's just right for toddlers, from the team behind the critically acclaimed picture book Mine
What does a toddler say when she drops her sunglasses in the sand? "Uh-Oh "
What does she say when a seagull lands on her sandcastle? "Uh-Oh "
What does she say when she finds a crab in her pail? "Uh-Oh "
And what does she say when a BIG wave is coming? That's the biggest "Uh-Oh " of all
This nearly wordless story of toddler adventure perfectly captures the dynamics between the youngest friends and the sheer pleasure of that favorite toddler word: Uh-Oh.
