Pick of the Week: Tiny Little Fly

Tiny Little Fly by Michael Rosen, illustrated by Kevin Waldron
Tiny little fly teases a great big elephant, a great big hippo, and a great big tiger. Each animal tries to catch that fly - but...that funny little fly can't be caught! Michael Rosen's text is just right for reading aloud to young listeners. The story is simple, with just the right mix of rhyme, rhythm, and anticipation! Kevin Waldron's bold illustrations capture the visual relationship between the tiny fly and the large jungle animals. The illustrations capture the energy and suspenseful play between the buzzing fly and the bothered animals.
