A Pocket Can Have a Treasure In It by Kathy Stinson and Deirdre Betteridge

The author of The Bare Naked Book and Red is Best has a new book!

Summary: The farm is the perfect place for a little girl’s playful – and sometimes surprising – observations of the things found “inside” other things. With questions that encourage preschoolers to chime in, this delightful picture book is an ideal read-aloud.

My daughter likes this book, marketed for ages 2-5. Children of this age love repetition and while the things keep changing, the fact that they are inside something else doesn’t and I think that’s what will attract children to it. Also a question is asked first (Can a tree have a cow in it?) which encourages children to interact and give an answer. My daughter found this fun.
