Describe the intended vision for your early childhood book manuscript in 1-2 sentences

This is an interactive book that helps kids learn the names of familiar things they see every day while they try to find the hidden shoe while interacting with objects in the book. I hope to make the objects detachable so that the adult can hide the shoe in different places to give a unique experience every time the book is used.

How has this book been informed by early childhood language development research and evidence? (response minimum 250 Characters)

Early childhood development is based on repetition and so this book showcases the things a baby sees around itself every day. It helps them name things, colours and objects while they flip them and look for the shoe. The shoe is a part of a child's attire and is a very prized possession since too many toddlers. The object is easy to identify and relate to. The scenes of the book depict the child's everyday spaces and also helps them develop observational skills by asking them to find particular objects within the frame. It also helps adults engage children in an activity where they can grasp the complete attention of the child. I hope to make the objects detachable so that the adult can hide the shoe in different places to give a unique experience every time the book is used.
