Children's Books by Tad Carpenter Arriving in Store on Sept. 11th -- I SAY, YOU SAY OPPOSITES! and I SAY, YOU SAY ANIMAL SOUNDS! (Giveaway)

 I Say, You Say

"These colorful, playful books encourage interactive learning through prediction and repetition; but most importantly, they look really fun."
- Dr. Robert Needlman, co-founder of Reach Out and Read and author of Dr. Spock's Baby Basics

Mark your calendars for September 11th, when Tad Carpenter's new picture books arrive in stores. Check out the adorable video created by Tad Carpenter:

I SAY, YOU SAY OPPOSITES! and I SAY, YOU SAY ANIMAL SOUNDS! are interactive and endlessly entertaining lift-the-flap board books that emphasize "word prediction," an important language development step for young readers. As parent readers call out the animal on each page, the child reader is encouraged to triumphantly respond with the correct answer, hidden beneath the flap. Fun and educational, this call-and-response technique offers a playful interactive reading experience and is a delightful and exciting way for children to learn words.

With a bright, retro-style palette and round-eyed animals, the I SAY, YOU SAY board book series is perfect for today's hip babies and parents.

Tad Carpenter is an illustrator and designer living in Kansas City, Missouri, and an adjunct professor in graphic design and illustration at the University of Kansas. You can visit him at
