Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Mr. Most's infectious wit and delight in wordplay will encourage youngsters to try their own variations on is themes-here and in Pets in Trumpets and Hippopotamus Hunt. The excitement of finding "it" in mITr, in arIThmetic, even in psITtracosaurus, will keep children guessing.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-2-This bit of whimsical wordplay sends readers searching for the letters ``i'' and ``t'' in 15 fun-filled situations. When playing baseball, one can find ``it'' in one's mitt. An astronaut will find ``it'' in orbit. ``It'' is not in the country, only in the city. Forget looking in the dark-``it'' can only be found when the light is switched on. Most's characteristically simple and colorful illustrations feature young children. The large format makes the book ideal for group guessing, but the many details will tempt individual browsers as well. Youngsters may not unravel these puzzles easily, but they will enjoy turning the pages to discover the author's creative solutions.-Lisa S. Murphy, formerly at Dauphin County Library System, Harrisburg, PA

The title reveals the game. "You can look for it" when you're playing baseball. You'll find it" in your mit"t!" The word "it" is in bold type throughout the text, whether by itself or within another word. Author-artist Most uses large, bright watercolors to illustrate everyday activities in which children can find "it": drinking juice poured from a pit"cher, standing in a room that has furnit"ure, petting a rabbit". Culturally inclusive, lighthearted, and fun, this is a good addition to parenting shelves and "help your child read" collections.
