Somewhere in the Bayou by Jarrett Pumphrey and Jerome Humphrey

Have you ever wondered how to handle a difficult situation?

The Picture Book of the Week is Somewhere in the Bayou, written and illustrated by Jarrett Humphrey and Jerome Humphrey.

About the Book:

Four swamp animals — an opossum, a squirrel, a rabbit, and a mouse — need to cross a river. They find a log that will get the job done, but there is a menacing-looking tail very close by. Each animal has its own solution to the problem of the tail and how to stay safe. How would you handle this difficult situation?

Watch Jarrett and Jerome show how to make the stamps they use to make the illustrations:
