Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-This celebration of kids on the go features full-color photos and a multicultural cast of children. Each page in the first half of the book focuses on one movement ("I walk," "I skip"). Then, Swinburne abruptly shifts narrative gears and begins to question readers ("Did you ever fall into the leaves?" "Do you follow the leader?"), interrupting the flow of the text. This change of perspective from observer to participant is not echoed in the photos, and the attempt to capture motion-a notoriously difficult problem within static photographs-is only partially successful. With verve, rhythm, and color, Brian Cleary's To Root, to Toot, to Parachute (Carolrhoda, 2001), for a slightly older audience, is a livelier choice.-Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha's Public Library, WI Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
