Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K-Facing pages offer two items to compare. An apple and a hedgehog-which is round? After turning the page, the question is repeated, but the apple is down to the core and the hedgehog has rolled into its protective ball. The next spread features a duck and a peacock and asks which is bigger. Other comparisons include longer and faster. The question "What do you think?" creates opportunity for discussion. Simple text and color cartoon animals on solid backgrounds allow children to focus on the investigations.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VAα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

*Starred Review* In this eye-opening and mind-bending picture book, six seemingly easy questions lead to surprising answers. The first spread opens blandly, asking “Which one is round?” and showing a picture of a large red apple on one page and a hedgehoglike animal (perhaps an echidna) standing on the other. Turn the page to find the apple eaten down to its core and the animal curled into a ball. “Which one is round? What do you think?” Children are asked to choose “Which is higher?” as a cat climbs a tall, spindly sapling, and a mouse climbs a somewhat shorter one. On the next page, both have reached the treetop, but the taller tree has bent over under the cat’s weight, leaving both the mouse and its tree higher. The short text leaves the explanations to viewers of the clean, digital artwork, which showcases each idea with clarity, energy, and a touch of humor. Like a magician, this clever book confounds expectations again and again, potentially encouraging children to stop blurting out the expected responses and, instead, to start exploring how they can possibly be wrong. Sure to inspire critical thinking, light-bulb moments, and laughter, this makes a terrific read-aloud choice. Preschool-Grade 2. --Carolyn Phelan

Format: Hardcover
This is a simple picture books for toddlers and preschool books that will delight young children with shape "tricks." It'll show a picture of an apple and an anteater, for instance (I think it's an anteater...hedgehog maybe?), and ask "Which is round?" Obviously the apple. But then on the next page, the apple will be bitten into and the armadillo will be curled into a ball. NOW which is round?

It's cute and I like the way it not only teaches shapes and proportions, but it also challenges perception based on movement and changing positions. Very young children tend to create broad categories for the things around them (a ball is round, therefore all round things are balls; an apple is a fruit, therefore all fruits are apples...or balls) so this kind of "trick" will bring giggles to younger toddlers. It was a little young for my three-year-old, but she still enjoyed the pictures.

Format: Hardcover
This book contains a series of paired pictures, the first with an obvious comparison of two things, the second with some change that reverses the relationship. For example, one shows what I assume to be a goose (based on its size) towering over a peacock with the text "Which one is bigger?". But when you turn the page the peacock has spread his tail and the text says: "Which one is bigger? What do you think?" There are six such scenes.

Translated from the original Japanese, this is a book to read to, and discuss with, a younger child. It introduces the idea that a concept like "bigger" can depend on how you look at it. The text is spare but the illustrations are cute. For the price a couple more scenes would have been nice, but overall a well done book.

I was provided a copy for review by the publisher.

This book was great way to prompt DD3 to make comparisons between shapes and objects. The cute and funny title is an English translation from the original Japanese book. Toddlers and preschoolers will enjoy answering questions about objects, the answers at first seem obvious until the next page reveals a twist.
