Get out there with the curious Johnny and his patient Mommy, in this colourful, rhyming book, celebrating all the wonders of the everyday world. What do they see? What do they hear? What do they talk about?


Little Johnny lets his curiosity take control as he discovers all sorts of fun things in nature.

With bright and colorful, this book joins a very energetic child, who gives his mom quite the run. It's short—great for those with very tight attention spans. However, the wording isn't as compact. Written in rhyme, the adventure becomes quite a bundle of words, and it fits Johnny's personality nicely. Even the mom gets a little bamboozled, which induces a lovely sense of humor along the walk home. And Johnny wears himself, making this a great bedtime read as listeners can snuggle in along with Johnny for dreams.

The curiosity and amazement of Johnny is fun to follow, and considering it sticks with his small finds in nature, a lovely mix. There isn't a whole lot going on—Johnny only discovers a few things but even these bubble from him—but it just enough for a very, quick read. Especially very young listeners (ages 2 to 4) are sure to enjoy this one.
