Can you spot the holes in this room? Holes for red laces that tighten a shoe. Holes you can sit in, or even crawl through! These two books combine the ideas of holes and inside/outside in an innovative concept series that will captivate young readers. Rhythmic text invites kids to explore the interiors of their homes (Holes Inside) and their neighborhoods (Holes Outside). The books serve as a springboard for conversation between parents/teachers and kids as they talk about the many kinds and functions of holes. Key Selling Points • Fresh take on “how things work”: Unlike other books in this genre, which focus on the workings of different objects, these titles explore just one concept—the hole— and its many functions. • Interaction is the name of the game: These books invite the back-and-forth of a conversation between child and parent/teacher, which significantly improves literacy skills. • Read and repeat: The repetitive, rhythmic text will have kids calling and responding, repeating the words with every reading. They’ll be having fun and learning along the way! • Innovative format: The die-cut gatefolds throughout these books enhance the conceptual underpinning in a fresh new way.
