Houghton Mifflin
September 1998

What do you see when you shut your eyes? A bull with horns? A pig that flies? Dido saw a skinny hen, Henry saw a snail, Peter saw a green rabbit, Lulu saw a nightingale- What do you see when you shut your eyes? Each of us responds to the world in unique ways. Cynthia Zarin has written a magical poem that will have children exploring their senses-and comparing notes-while Sarah Durham’s illustrations will jump-start the imagination! This lively book, with its bright childlike illustrations and rhyming text, is the perfect read-aloud; it will have little ones looking, listening, and interacting with their world in new ways.
