The creator of the successful FLAPPY Bright and playful, these are the question-and-response games that toddlers demand to have read and re-read over and over again.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Bright bold colors illustrate this wonderful book of adjectives, contrasts and humor for young children. Are chickens stripy? No, but zebras are. The outside of the flap shows us the stripy chicken, and when we lift, we see the zebra with the word "stripy," and the chicken, unstriped, with the word "speckled!" This example is repeated eleven times in lift-the-flap pages┬żasking if snakes run, if elephants are small, if monkeys swim or ducks are wooly, and so on. The final flap asks, "Who runs, hops, jumps, crawls, swims, and digs and is small, hairy, stripy, blotchy, and woolly?" A big purple question mark on its green flap invites the reader to lift and discover the answer, "Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me!" The children in the last illustration are all white; half have skirts on. This will not be noticed by the children for whom the book is intended, but should have been noted by the editor. The book is sturdy, and would hold up in a public library. 2000, Handprint Books, . Ages 2 to 5. Reviewer: Candace Deisley
School Library Journal
PreS-Chickens offers 12 questions such as: "Do penguins dig?" opposite a picture of a perplexed penguin outlined in heavy black lines. Open up the flap and the text reads: "No, but dogs do!" The animals are illustrated on brightly colored backgrounds. Unfortunately, this book has a typo: the answer to the question, "Are fish hairy?" is "No, but orangutans do!" Crocodiles asks such questions as "Are chicks green?" and "Are sheep yellow?" Fans of Leslie's Flappy Waggy Wiggly (Dutton, 1999) will applaud Crocodiles, which will be an excellent choice for preschool storytimes.-Olga R.
