Open the flaps to follow an adorable young bigfoot (a.k.a., Sasquatch) on a day-long adventure in a warm and vibrant magical-realist Pacific Northwest forest realm. Along the way you'll meet and interact with a forest full of nonthreatening creatures including tree fairies, forest gnomes, bats, bears and owls. Young readers and pre-readers will delight in the details of this magical world, as every spread features a sturdy flap that reveals a fun, unexpected and friendly character or hidden aspect for the reader to discover at their own pace. As day turns to night, the final spread finds Bigfoot Baby tuckered out and safely tucked in a tree house bed, with parents present to say goodnight after a busy day of adventure.
The durable, interactive flaps make this an ideal multisensory experience for hours of fun at schools, libraries, homeschool or stay-at-home activities.
