Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Preschooler Billy and his fluffy white canine pal are recurring characters in these marginal picture books. In Town, the two tour a business center, a school, a farmer's market, a hospital, an athletic field, and a cruise ship. (The text explains that a ship is a city of its own.) They visit a terminal and a hangar in Airport. In Build, they observe the construction of a home, boat, car, skyscraper, bridge, railroad, and road, and in City Streets, Billy and Baxter travel through a city via foot, truck, and car. All of these titles have the same format. A bland paragraph of text is found in the upper left corner of each spread. For example, one portion of a passage reads: "Next year Billy will go to school. Baxter will stay at home. At school you read and do math" (Town). The full-spread illustrations are strong in bold primary colors; elements such as people and objects are outlined in black. Underneath each paragraph is a subset of smaller pictures. There are no directions to search for them within the larger scene, but children should pick up on the idea and look for these details. However, the smaller subset pictures are not always facing the same directions as those in the larger picture. All of the books have art that is lost in the gutter. The glossaries don't always include words that need definitions; for example, the one in Airport includes cockpit and fuselage but not stabilizer. Additional purchases.-Lynn K.
