Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-This wordless book follows a boy through the seasons as he plays with his pets and finds fun things to do both inside and outside. Each page features several die cuts; the inside pages offer glimpses from the windows of the outdoor world, the outside pages offer peeks in. Frequently the glimpses inside turn out to be pictures the boy has drawn of the day's adventures. The gouache illustrations are chock-full of homey details that children will enjoy poring over. The cat is snoozing in a mixing bowl, the dog is sipping from a watering can, small birds are cavorting in rain puddles. Each of the inside pages offers the opportunity to search for two little white mice sharing in the activities. Perused independently or shared one-on-one, this lovely concept book succeeds on multiple levels.-Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

*Starred Review* In this wordless picture book, a young child (who could be male or female and is of indeterminate ethnicity) creates an indoor habitat for a turtle, readies potted plants, performs a puppet show, and constructs a small sailboat. But what’s going on outside? Cutouts, mostly in the form of windows, hint at what equally fun activities the child does outdoors. From making snowmen and splashing in puddles to planting a garden and raking leaves, the outside scenes reflect the changing of the seasons, with the cutouts offering glimpses back to the previous indoor spread. At once detailed and childlike, the organic gouache illustrations on brown paper echo the child’s ongoing artwork, which is proudly displayed on the walls of the indoor scenes—but which, via the cutouts, we can see were inspired by the outdoors. While there is a loose story line, each inside-outside pairing inspires a tale of its own, with the recurring cat, dog, turtle, mice, and birds each playing a part. The opportunities for art projects, storytelling, creative writing, and other educational avenues are endless for preschoolers and even somewhat older children. This inspiring endeavor begs to be shared again and again to absorb every fine detail. Preschool-Grade 2. --Angela Leeper

This book was well-received by my nieces and nephews.
S. L. Simmons
As an artist, I'm very taken with the illustrations and it's been fun making up stories about what's happening on each page.
Artist Mom
The brown paper stock feels warm and inviting, almost as though the book is a kid's art project creation.

There are no written words, but it the amazing detail in every picturemakes it so easy to create your own. It goes through the seasons and different activities to do inside and outside. My daughter loves creating a new story every time she opens this book.

Format: Hardcover
This is such a beautifully designed, elegant little book, and my 16-month-old daughter loves it. We checked it out from the public library and it's been *the* favorite for two weeks. She loves to point out all the animals -- she's even learning their names -- and poke her fingers through the cutouts that reveal the inside/outside scenes. We've got to bring the library copy back in a few days, so I'm ordering our own copy, pronto. Hurray for Lizi Boyd! Make more! Make more!

This book was well-received by my nieces and nephews. It does help to be there to get them started with the idea of the book. The reader tells his or her own story based on the pictures. Now the older ones "read" to the younger ones asking them questions like "What happens next?" "And then what happens?" Fun and interactive.

This book is a favorite of many! The stories the 'reader' can spin are wonderful and the parent can further the enjoyment with
questions or suggestions. A super 'reading time' gift!
