Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A chimp of no specific gender romps through two books, presenting favorite books in the first title ("books about dinosaurs and books about monsters . . . song books . . . and strange books") and playful pastimes in the second ("Going to birthday parties, and being with my friends . . . ." among the pleasures). Browne's pictures have an attractive looseness that make them ideal for toddlers; he has simplified his style without undermining it. In Books the chimp appears in clothing inspired by storybook heroes; and in Things the lead character is surrounded by friends and activities. The outlook in each--positive and upbeat--sends a clear message, encouraging the overlapping events of imaginative play, real activities and reading. Ages 2-6.

Review

"Browne will captivate preschoolers with his charming chimp, simple sentences, and colorful, action-filled illustrations."--School Library Journal

Format: Hardcover
As a librarian I have frequently used this book with the younger readers to introduce the type of books they would find in the library. It has nice, simple, and colorful pictures that appeal to the children.

Format: Hardcover
At first I only got this book because it was illustrated by Anthony Browne. But the book is very inspiring for younger readers. I don't want to give away the plot so I won't write anymore.
