What?by Leo Lionni
From a ringing telephone to a pair of eyeglasses to a wedge of cheese, Leo Lionni's signature illustration style and a toddler-friendly text ask a simple question: What is the object on this page? One of four board books that celebrates the art and imagination of Leo Lionni, this is a perfect introduction to an early learning concept for busy toddlers, as well as a wonderful stepping stone into the world of one of our best-loved children's book creators.

This popular author of children's books gave us a true gem with this set of 4 books related to 'wh' questions. The books may be used to generate conversation, to teach 'wh' formats, to introduce prepositions, and to introduce young children or special needs children to additional concept terms. My own set seems to have disappeared, but I used them for many years as a speech/ language pathologist in a public school setting. I hope they are brought back to print soon.
