Come Back, Hannah!
by Marisabina Russo
Published by Greenwillow / HarperCollins, 2001
While her mother tries to get a few things done, little Hannah keeps crawling away to explore the things she sees and hears around her house. Hannah dumps books off the shelf, plays with the pots and pans, and follows the jingle jangle of the dog's collar. "Come back, Hannah" calls her mother over and over. Young listeners won't be able to resist joining that refrain in this finely paced, wholly child-centered story about a baby's various encounters with her world. Russo used gouache for the vibrant illustrations. CCBC Categories: Picture Books for Younger Children. © Cooperative Children's Book Center
