Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

On each spread, facing full-color photographs illustrate the opposing concepts of wet and dry. Children frolic in the surf, then snuggle together in a towel; a child is splashed in the face by a hose, while another holds it safely with the water turned off; a flowerbed is pictured both dry and being watered down. As with his other books (Here a Chick, There a Chick; Becca Backward, Becca Frontward), McMillan's photographs are expressive and appealing, and there is a nice humor in several of the pairings. However, the book as a whole is less engaging and ultimately less successful than his previous works, for the concept here is a limited one, easily grasped in its first presentation; one quickly begins to crave new discoveries rather than repeated examples of the same. An afterword suggests that the photographs can be used to introduce other words and expressions"splash," "spray," "high and dry," and so onbut for these lessons children would need to rely entirely on the prompting of imaginative adults. Ages 3-7.
