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

Snap Like A Crocodile! (12 pp.; $6.95; Aug.; 1-899607-40-4): This candy-colored flap book from Burns (see review, above) once again invites children to imitate the animals. Flaps lift to reveal crocodiles, a dog, parrots, pigs, and sharks. Each two-page spread is introduced by a question, e.g., ``Who is snuffling in the orchard?'' The animals are just barely in evidence before the flap is turned, when the text book urges onlookers to snap, bark, squawk, sniff, oink, or give a toothy grin like a shark. Burns's highly stylized artwork has immediate visual appealand even in its maze-like, dreamy state is a mild introduction to habitats. (Lift-the-flap. 2-5) -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP.
