Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Jocelyn and Slaughter (previously paired for Eats) strikingly introduce the concept of classification. Slaughter's graphic cut-paper compositions command attention with their paint-box–bright colors. The first spread, for example, shows an apple, a blue-and-green planet Earth and a tambourine, against fields of yellow, black and red, respectively, for stop-sign-like impact. Round things, reads the caption. The next pages show the tambourine again, now with a guitar and a bird. This spread is captioned things that make music. Always carrying forward one of the three objects from the previous spread, Jocelyn delivers the vital lesson that everyday objects fall into many categories. The concept is clear and the delivery attractive; a book like this is an essential part of the very young child's library. Ages 2–5. (Jan.)

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K—On each spread, simple painted paper cuts depict trios of similar objects in bold primary colors. The book begins with "round things" (a red apple, the Earth, a tambourine) and a page turn connects these items to "things that make music" (another tambourine, a guitar, a bird). Likewise, the bird relates to the following set of "things that fly." Ultimately the idea is brought full circle by linking the last set of objects ("red things") back to the first (the apple). Children will enjoy identifying the associations between the pictures and seeing how the items can be included in differently themed groupings. An appealing and eye-catching addition.—Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ

This book is great!

I read this to my daughter, and she loves it! She is only a couple months old, so she doesn't understand what I'm reading, but she loves to stare at the simple pictures because they are high-contrast (like the pictures on the cover).

This book is pretty cool. Every spread has three things that have something in common, and then a description. So, for instance, when you first open this book, one side of the page has a tambourine and a guitar and the other side has the red bird from the front of the book, and the bottom says "things that make music". Then, when you turn the page, there is a smaller picture of the red bird again, and an airplane, and then a bunch of bees on the other side of the page, and it says "things that fly". Whatever is drawn the largest is always included in the next set of things, with some other thing in common (like, the bird is first a thing that makes music and then a thing that flies).

So, for preschool or kindergarten age kids, this book would be especially good because you can talk about things that have characteristics in common, and you could talk about other things that could go in the sets, and so forth.

For really small kids, like my daughter, this book is VERY interesting because of all the contrast--so it's definitely a book that will grow with her, because she'll enjoy different things about it as she gets older.

I highly recommend this book for any kids! It is really an excellent book.
