SLOW DOWN...IN THE PARK by Freya Hartas.  New York: Magic Cat Publishing, 2021. 12p.  ISBN 978-141976146-1 bb. $9.99     PreS-K   Board Book

Part of the series of Calming Nature Stories for Little Ones, Hartas features six parts of the natural world to read about.  She places a paragraph of basic information on the left page, while telling the same story in graphic panels on the right.  It's easy to follow and could be used to prepare young readers for graphic novels that will come their way later on.  The first page features ducks, with illustrations reminiscent of Robert McCloskey's art in MAKE WAY FOR DUCKLINGS.  The heavy duty board book format is great for toddlers to pick up and read independently.
