Little Boo

Submitted by Ms. Allana!
Little Boo by Stephen Wunderli, illustrated by Tim Zeltner. What would you call a little seed who is trying to be scary? Boo! Of course! Little Boo is a seed but he kind of resembles a ghostly shape, which gives away what time of year it is. It’s Fall, and little Boo is making his way through the gardens and fields trying to scare other creatures. The wind tells little Boo that it isn’t time to be scary yet. What exactly does she mean? The snow comes and covers little Boo as he is resting underground for what seems like a very long time. Changes happen to little Boo as he is under the ground. When he finally feels the warm sunshine, he reaches for it. He stretches and reaches and begins to grow. Will he eventually become something scary? The wind knows. This is a delightful seasonal story for preschoolers and little ones. The illustrations are unique too. The artist used acrylic on plywood with stains and glazes for a wonderful effect.
