From Publishers Weekly
"Turning the pages of Miller's elegantly simple photo-essay is like freshly experiencing all five senses," said PW of this cheerful series of children's portraits celebrating sights, sounds, smells, tastes and textures. Ages 2-4.

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-K-Slight in text, but often visually striking, this book introduces the subject through photographs of five children, each of a different race or ethnicity. An African-American girl looks at herself, her shadow, her dog, and her city, each illustrated with a full-color photograph of her interacting with the topic at hand. The pattern is repeated by each child: "with my nose I smell popcorn, a horse, flowers, and garbage. With my mouth I taste..." Finally, readers are told, "With our five senses, we enjoy our world." While some of the pictures seem staged, they depict experiences common to many children of this age, and are sure to provoke discussion. The book is in the same vein as Aliki's My Five Senses (Crowell, 1989) and Henry Pluckrose's "Think About" series (Watts), all of which essentially offer visual images, making no attempt to explain how or why the senses work. As such, this title is an additional purchase for collections serving young children.Denise L. Moll, Lone Pine Elementary School, West Bloomfield, MI
