Boys and girls alike will enjoy except if by Jim Averbeck.
It starts with an egg, which is not a baby bird. The egg will become a baby bird
Except if… it becomes a baby snake.
The rest of the book follows the same format: the snake will slither on its belly, except if… it is a baby lizard.
As the readers follow along in the book, it comes full circle, back to an egg, with a simple, but rather funny ending – especially considering the ‘except ifs’ which came before.
With simple, colorful pictures, and only a few words on each page, this book should hold the attention of toddlers, preschoolers and young elementary students alike.
Recommended for ages 18 months to 6 years.
