Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Household objects are assigned duo purposes (in the title, a jar), sometimes strictly functional and other times, serving as children's playthings. ``A big tire / for rolling down the road / or swinging from the tree / . . . A wooden spoon / for mixing cookies / or tapping a tune.'' This will be familiar territory for most readers, who often use found objects in creative ways. The first part of the text, naming the object, is framed by art, and the two uses are depicted in the spreads. Although Weiss provides some whimsical touches, her illustrations adhere to the text absolutely--in watercolor and colored pencil, she works strictly within the boundaries of the concept. Ages 1-4. (Aug.)
School Library Journal
PreS-K-- Cheerful illustrations demonstrate the concept of multiple uses, as a little boy and his dog appear as participants in each demonstration of the ways in which objects serve dual purposes. The pastel watercolor and colored-pencil drawings create a softness in the scenes, and the doll-like characters evoke a relaxed mood and a sense of happy times with each activity. Two particularly amusing shifts show a paper bag used first for groceries and then decorated as a Halloween mask; raisins can be a snack or a face on a cookie. Most of the 11 items will be comfortably recognizable to toddlers, but some children might be baffled to see that ``a big tire'' can be used for rolling down the road or that a dresser drawer (while in the dresser) serves as a dog's bed. The vignettes encourage creative thinking about a third or fourth use for these objects in addition to setting the moment for telling stories about the activities observed. Adults could explore with children the many other objects used for ``dual'' functions. --Ellen Dibner, East School, Long Beach, NY
