What kind of song is part talk and part sing? Rap! And can you guess what’s part buzz and—ouch!—part sting? Songlike rhyme inspires kids to think about the parts that make up the sum of various things, actions, and concepts. Behind a flap, young readers will discover what is part whisper and part keeping mum (psst…it’s a secret!) and what kind of fruit is part peach and part plum (did you guess nectarine?). Tom Slaughter’s pop-meets-elegant collage art and punch-bright pages invite kids to enter into this entertaining conversation about the parts, the sum, and the whole marvelous mix of things we see, have, and do. Ideal for inviting critical and creative thinking, and for group and one-onone discussion, What is Part This, Part That? continues the Blue Apple tradition of books that are part eye-catching, part mind-captivating, and all for kids!
