Editorial Reviews

Practical Pre-School
These are ‘must buy’ books for the whole early years. The Reception children at St Oswald’s Catholic Primary in Wigan couldn’t put these down. They laughed, compared, recommended and discussed them. Each book has its own sturdy card figure (boy on one side, girl on other) fixed by ribbon to the spine. Move it to the plastic ‘costume’ pocket on each page and turn the child into a penguin, nurse or an astronaut! Children were fascinated by the idea of dressing up as a hotdog and intrigued by the fun, factual text which they could read: ‘I am chewy. Squeeze on the sauce. Munch! I am a hotdog! The books prompted speculation about what they would do if one child was a bowl of spaghetti and the other was a crocodile, or if someone was the ice-cream, which would the croc eat? These books are very good value for the conversation they inspired and at a basic level they clearly define categories.
Nursery Education
Young children can continually change their opinions on what they like. A new series of books lets them explore a whole variety of topics and change their mind at the drop of a hat!
The All Change! series is a set of four brightly coloured titles, Animals, Food, Party and Jobs, allowing the children to explore each subject and tackle issues of gender stereotypes.
Publishers Weekly
A quartet of interactive board books in the All Change! series by Angela Lambert go from simple concepts such as Food and Animals, to more complex ideas such as Party and Jobs. All books come with a corrugated doll attached by a red string that eases in and out of a transparent pocket ("I am sweet and crumbly./ Do you like icing?/ Mmmmn!/ I'm a Cake!"). This interactive element works more successfully in the latter two titles. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Do you like sweets, snacks, fruit, and other foods? Each has a taste or quality that sets it apart from the others. In this board book a red ribbon attaches to a cardboard figure that can be a boy or a girl, depending on which side of the figure the reader selects. The cutout, a sort of paper doll, slips into a vinyl pocket in each spread. The text describes a food--"I am cold and creamy. Quick, or I'll melt! Brrr! I am an Ice Cream." Kids can have fun pretending they are eating a hotdog, spaghetti, pineapple, and more, and at the same time learn a little about the food item, including its name. The ribbon seems to be securely attached, and the front cover pocket is a good place to keep the cutout safe. This is part of the "All Change!" series. 2005, Child's Play, Ages 3 to 6.
