Tilt, Turn, and Shake This Book to Create a Masterpiece!

Lucy Volpin

Hardcover, 32 Pages

Ages 4 – 8


I am Crocodali, the most talented painter in the whole wide world. And you are in my studio!

In this interactive picture book, children can follow Crocodali the painter’s instructions to help him create a masterpiece that will spark children’s curiosity! Crocodali tells readers to tilt the book to straighten the canvas, shake the book to spread the paint, blow on the book (but not too hard!) to help the painting dry, and much more. As they help Crocodali paint his masterpiece, children will be able to express their creative sides and learn to appreciate art.
