Looking for a Mooseby Phyllis Root, Randy Cecil (Illustrator)

An ear-tickling, eye-teasing romp for little listeners, led by an award-winning author and illustrator
Do you really, really want to see a moose — a long-leggy moose — a branchy-antler, dinner-diving, bulgy-nose moose? Spurred by Phyllis Root's sing-songy text and Randy Cecil's buoyant illustrations, this hunt for an elusive moose through woods, swamps, bushes, and hills is just as fun as the final surprise discovery of moose en masse. Children will laugh at the running visual joke — what is that little dog looking at? — and ask for repeated reads of this satisfying tale.

As I was reading this to my two year old, I was already picturing it as a wonderful read aloud for my first graders. Then I was imagining a group of students performing it in reader's theater. Great read with wonderful adjectives. My two year old loves this book and I know older students will as well!
I've been reading this book to 600 Preschool students for 2 yrs and I never get tired of it! I make noises to go with the reading and I get the kids to join me in the parts that repeat, NOW WHAT!". Every time I read this book, and on one day this school year I read it to 12 different classes, I get the same reaction from the students and I only enjoy the story more. I've given it to my granddaughters for a gift and my best friend to read to her preschool classes. It is a great read, wonderful pictures and a sure fire crowd pleaser!
