Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Steve Lavis looks at animals foreign and domestic with two Peek-Through Board Books. On the Farm follows the wooly sheep as he searches out who has eaten its breakfast. As each page is turned, more animals become visible through the die-cut spaces. The culprits are found behind the tractor. In the Jungle follows the same format, only this time a crocodile is in hiding. "Here I am!" shouts the crocodile on the last spread. Then he asks, "Who wants to hide next?" ( Apr.)

Very simple illustrations on solid colored pages comprise this board book. The focus is size and each spread compares two items, such as an elephant and an ant or a tree and a leaf. The small format makes this book attractive for the very young, and it will teach the concept with objects that kids encounter or will easily understand. This little book has some big ideas. 2001, Little Brown, $4.95. Ages 6 mo. to 3. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
