YOU CAN'T CATCH ME

This entry in the Harper Growing Tree series has a text modeled on ""There was a little turtle,"" and several other hand rhymes. It's a lap-sized alternative to board books and features three animals and a child gleefully being chased, hiding from their pursuers, and then being caught up--in the child's case--for a parental hug. A brief line or two of text undulates across each simple painting of happy, bounding figures, all eyes and smiles; the sturdy paper stock will survive rough handling during the repeated reading most children will demand. You can almost hear the giggles.
