Starred Review (reviewed on April 1, 2011)
Shea's book debut is a clever, rhymed test of kids' notions of living and nonliving things. Slaughter's illustrations bring pop art to mind. Clear a space on the shelves for this one.
Shea's verses scan consistently and gracefully. Slaughter's primaries push against each other for maximum visual charge. Children will relish the fun of being sure of the answers and they'll love Shea's tongue-in-cheek tone.

I love this book because it actually encourages discussion and the kids LOVED getting involved in the learning. Can a car really grow into a truck?! NO WAY...why?! They loved the silly aspect of the book and enjoyed lifting the flap as well. Great book.
Interactive. Funny. Educational. Great!
It is clever and visually striking, and preschoolers really respond to it.
The concept seems simple, but it is a great "spark" for lots of conversations, expansion, and vocabulary building.
The bright colors and bold, retro images make this a visually striking addition to the preschool bookshelf.
There is only one thing that I would change if I could: The last page has a picture of a dark haired Caucasian boy with the caption "You". Because very young children are so literal, many often respond, "That isn't me!" Some are amused, some are adament and argumentative, and some are flat out annoyed!
Wouldn't a framed mirror panel have been fun on that page? If not that, perhaps a picture several children, reflecting both genders and several skin tones...
It is a minor quibble and this book is a keeper!
Highly recommended for sharing one-on-one and with groups.
