In the Tall, Tall Grass by Denise Fleming.
Henry Holt and Company: NY, 1991.

Like many baby/toddler books, the emphasis is on animals and action. Some you may see in your backyard. Others less likely. The words and rhythm are snappy and mostly short. Although I like the words used, the language in Beetle Bop is more creative and rhythmic.

The best part of the book is the illustrations. The background starts out very bright for the morning and changes through the day and night. Vibrant colors layer over each other for rough, impressionistic images.
