Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K Gr 2 Two concept books that feature the works of well-known artists. Rubin's rhyming text accompanies a boldly hued image of an animal or insect by Andy Warhol on each spread. "Big RED dog barks BOW WOW WOW/Small GREEN cat just purrs meow." The book concludes with the verse: "See the colors bright and bold./ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN, and GOLD./PINK and BLUE and all the rest./Which of them do you like best?" While this is not the standard color spectrum, it does serve as an effective introduction. Counting uses Thiebaud's whimsical work to count from one (piece of pie) to 10 (cheese wedges). The last spread has a painting of a gum ball machine and offers viewers a counting challenge. While these concepts may be appropriate for the board-book audience, there are better books available to introduce youngsters to these artists.-Lynne Mattern, Robert Seaman School, Jericho, NY
