Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-Colorful concept books meant to surprise young children. Five different animals are featured in each title. One side of each double-page spread asks a question. Three-quarters of the page on the other side opens easily to reveal the answer and pose another question that encourages youngsters to imitate the animals' actions. In Snap, Burns asks: "Who is sitting on the branch? PARROTS. Can you squawk like a parrot?" The design is simple, the text is large and easy to read, and the illustrations have a graphic-design quality. Observant readers will notice that part of the animal is always visible before the flap is lifted. However, the bold colors tend to clash, giving the pages a garish look that is too busy for the simple text. Unremarkable, though serviceable additions.

From Kirkus Reviews

Jump Like A Frog! (12 pp.; $6.95; Aug.; 1-899607-35-8): Hiding behind folding flaps that lift up, down, and sideways are extraordinary animals in dazzling colors. Orangutans, flamingos, frogs, seals, and penguins swing, hop, and cavort through these pages, while the book invites readers to join in and imitate them. Exhortations to stand on one leg, as a flamingo does, or swing from a parent's hand, as the orangutan does, make this a book best read any hour but bedtime. The illustrations, even for the cold-weather penguin, are cheerful and south-of-the-border bright. (Lift-the-flap. 2-5) -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
