Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2. In the same vein as Look! Look! Look! (1988) and Take Another Look (1981, both Greenwillow), this wordless book is filled with bright, crisp photographs. Viewers first encounter a piece of an image, viewed through a small, die-cut circle on a black page. The full-color object?be it a flower, a pigeon, or a hot pretzel?is revealed with the turn of a page. Another turn of the page provides a larger view?a second photograph showing the more complete scene (a stand full of flowers, a flock of pigeons, a cart of pretzels). It's no secret that Hoban takes brilliant photographs and that her books are enjoyed by a wide variety of ages. This one is sure to be a crowd pleaser. For a variation on a similar theme, try Shelley Rotner and Richard Olivo's Close, Closer, Closest (S & S, 1997).?Dina Sherman, Brooklyn Children's Museum, NY

From Booklist

Ages 4^-8. In the latest in her popular series of "peek through the hole" books, Hoban presents a dazzling assortment of color photographs that celebrate the rich detail of everyday things. Once again, the reader looks through a circle cut from a stark black page to view a small part of an object on the page beneath. Odd brown loops with white speckles turn out to be large, soft pretzels when the page is turned. Flip the page again, and the pretzels appear in a street vendor's display. With the exception of the pretzels, the photos feature things found mostly in nature--the feathers of a pigeon, the fur of a shaggy dog. Children will have fun guessing the identities of the objects, making the book particularly useful with small groups. But along with the fun, Hoban delivers an educational and enriching visual experience. Helen Rosenberg

Format: Hardcover
Do you know what a butterfly, a hippo, a crab, an ostrich, or a pretzel looks like? Think again. The Look Book by Tana Hoban will challenge your knowledge. One page is a black sheet of paper with a hole in the middle of it. Look at the exposed picture through the hole. Fooled you, didn't it? A gray, white, and black band turned out to be a pigeon. This is a great book for teaching children logical thinking skills and encouraging original thought. Recommended reading for ages 4-8, the book is fun for adults, too.

Format: Hardcover
No text. Just a black page with a round hole in the center, showing a portion of the photograph of something on the next page (like a dog, etc) so as the title says, Look, and then guess what it is. Good for eliciting language out of students, asking, what do you think it might be? What are the clues? I have my kids make their own look book with their own pictures and then they can take it home and play with their parents.

I ordered this book in September and have yet to receive it! The sellers have not answered any of the emails sent and now I am out the money. Never buy from this seller!
