2 [empty string] Sophie Blackall 10972 Sophie Blackall 2024-06-24 13:40:39.017 Raise the mainsail! Batten the hatches! It's time to set sail...on the couch! There's a storm coming, and a child is ready to captain the ship. "Make haste and climb aboard," they call out to their parent, "before you're swept out to sea!" Sea? What sea? The parent is only trying to vacuum the rug. But the child is adamant. It's not a rug--it's the ocean. And that broom? It's the ship's mast. Soon enough, child and parent are both off on an imaginary nautical adventure! Here is a thoroughly engaging, hilarious picture book that celebrates the joys of playing make-believe--and hanging out with a parent! 28421 Ahoy! 9780593429396 https://catalog.coolcat.org/iii/encore/search/C__Sahoy%20sophie%20blackall__Orightresult__U?lang=eng&suite=cobalt 0 [empty string] 182
3 [empty string] Lauren Paige Conrad 16257 Lauren Paige Conrad 2024-06-24 13:41:41.093 Just look at what you can build out of ordinary stuff when you follow your imagination! Children and their caretakers will love this beguiling child-led tour of a make-believe world constructed from everyday household and backyard objects. Words and pictures work together cleverly to spark eureka moments: that "ship" is really a table, that "dark cave" is really a laundry basket, and more, as a day full of building, playing, and pretending turns into bedtime. Children will use their own imaginations and storytelling skills as they figure out what the book's busy characters are up to in the gorgeous collage-style art. With perfect rhymes that make it an irresistible read-aloud, this delightful book is a classic in the making perfect for a wide audience of parents and childcare professionals, especially anyone seeking a book that celebrates creative play. 28422 This is a Window 9781662651595 https://catalog.coolcat.org/iii/encore/search/C__SThis%20is%20a%20Window%20Lw%3D%3D%20Lauren%20Paige%20Conrad__Orightresult__U?lang=eng&suite=cobalt 0 [empty string] 182
