“Tails fluffy. Tails stringy. Scaled tails strong and—clingy!” What small child can resist the allure of a swishing tail? On this podcast episode of Read Out Loud join Matthew Van Fleet as he reads his tale, TAILS.
ABOUT THE BOOK
TAILS — Tails are irresistible to toddlers, and in Matthew Van Fleet’s sturdy touch-and-feel board book, preschool-age pokers and prodders can finally tug to their heart’s content. Engaging, cartoonish animals from tigers to pangolins romp across the pages as the rhyming text bounces along: “Tails fluffy, / Tails stringy, / Scaled tails strong and—clingy!” Pull tabs, lift-able flaps, tufts of fur, and even a scratch-and-sniff skunk tail provide plenty of tactile surprises. Along the way, youngsters will learn about counting, opposites, and how animals use their tails. A tried and true tail-wagger!
