It is a story about a boy named Timothy Pope who’s taking a trip through the park and sees a shark. Or so he thinks. Join him on this surprisingly funny journey by looking through this peep-through board book and get surprises on each page!
Timothy Pope is testing out his new telescope in the park. He looks up, down, left, then right and thinks he saw a shark. Is it a shark? Or is it something else? This is an entertaining story with a lot of repetitive phrases and rhyming language that is perfect for reading out aloud. It can be read independently by the older children to build their confidence in reading. The directional progression will also teach them directions like right and left.
It features simple text with vibrant artwork and eye-catching illustrations. The holes in the pages make the board book highly interactive which children will love peeking through trying to find the shark!
Most importantly, the story also gives a very important lesson of not judging everything they see in most hilarious and effortless way ever!
