Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-In this large board book, a cheerful little girl with her hair arranged in cornrows shares knowledge from her daily life in rhyming pairs of opposites. "I know snow is cold,/and stoves are hot./If you ask me things,/I know a lot!" Illustrations show her playing in the snow with friends and standing near Dad at the stove with her hands tucked safely behind her back. Primary colors and simple shapes make the retro-chic illustrations pop. Readers will respond to the child's confidence by being proud of their own understanding of the world. This is the third of this team's empowerment titles, but it is fully successful as a stand-alone.-Amelia Jenkins, Juneau Public Library, AKα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

In this confidence-boosting title, an adorable, rosy-cheeked, primary color–wearing, cornrow-adorned protagonist gleefully proclaims her smarts. Focusing on opposites (“I know rocks are heavy / and flowers are light”), and working with a basic rhyme scheme (light is rhymed with night), the book gives young listeners plenty to ponder. Gillingham’s art is bright, pleasing, and modern, featuring a bold graphic style heavy with basic shapes. Additionally, the multiethnic cast of characters includes the heroine’s single dad, driving her through the night, cooking on a stove, and flying a kite. A sure bedtime hit. Preschool. --Courtney Jones

Format: Board book
A friend in childhood development gave my 1-1/2 year olds one of the first books in this series, I Can Do It Myself!, and as a reader and writer I immediately fell in love with Stephen Krensky's writing. He does more than you can image in two spreads of one simple sentence each. As a parent, I love the simple ways in which the book recognizes and celebrates a child's accomplishments.

Although we have and greatly enjoy all three books, I KNOW A LOT may be my favorite so far (I hope there are more!). The writing truly is beautiful and surprising which makes it incredibly enjoyable to read as a grownup. Many books for the toddler set contain rhymes which can make for repetitive ideas and words. Stephen choses to focus on elements of childhood not always called out in a book, but certainly relevant and recognized. "I know rocks are heavy and flowers are light" - so crazy beautiful, right?!

PLUS, I love the dad featured in I KNOW A LOT. Our now 2-1/2 year old girls love their dad, and get a lot of care and support from their dad, and it is wonderful to finally see this represented in a regular old book that is clearly about the child, as opposed to seeing a dad in a book marketed for Father's Day.

Our girls love the book too, love exploring the gorgeous and unique drawings, and love saying that YES, I KNOW THAT, TOO or YES, I CAN DO THAT, TOO! as we follow along with the main character's accomplishments.

On a more mundane level, these books stand up, construction-wise! My girls wreck havoc on all of their books, often shredding the covers, pulling the paper off the board, but these Appleseed books are stronger than they!

This is a series of book that I confidently give as birthday presents. They are beautiful in words and images, memorable in theme, and incredibly well made!

We have the other two books in this series and we love them all. I especially like that this story features a father and daughter, without making the father-daughter thing a part of the plot.
