Look Out, Leonard! by author Jessie James and illustrator Tamara Anegon

Reading Age: 3 – 5 years

Publisher: DK Children

publication Date: March 2, 2021

It is time for the Shrew family to move to a new home. The Shrews walk in single file holding onto each other’s tails. Leonard, the last Shrew with seemingly the worst vision keeps grabbing the tails of other jungle animals and romps through slapstick types of experiences seemingly enjoying the series of encounters. When his family is in danger, Leonard’s lighthearted antics saves and reunites them. A funny read that introduces children to 6 different animals (including the shrew). Children will love yelling, “Look out, Leonard!” when Leonard is in a bind. Attractive foliage with clearly depicted characters. In the end there is added information about shrews.
