Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

If ever the promotional copy on a book hit the nail on the head, this is it: "Everyday objects and a baby duck dog, cat, bear combine to make five simple stories for parents and toddlers to tell together." What the copy does not indicate, however, is the--surprisingly large--amount of charm packed into this clever quartet. The five spreads in each board book tell a mini-story, and the only difficulty will be choosing a favorite. The dog leaps at a beach ball, only to have it deflate in his mouth; the duck spies a fluffy pink slipper and settles in for a snooze. All of the animals, in fact, are fast asleep at each conclusion, a nicety that will not escape parents' attention. It's clear Wijngaard knows his animals--these frolicsome creatures are realistically portrayed and remain refreshingly true to their behavioral patterns. (The cat rubs contentedly against the closed jack-in-the-box, but his euphoria ends abruptly when a clown pops out.) Brevity is not only the soul of wit, it would appear, but the inspiration for certain delectable books. Ages 6 mos.-3 yrs.

The latest book club pick from Oprah
