Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
I buzz among flowers
I'm striped black and yellow
Except for my sting
I'm a pretty fine fellow.
What am I?....A bee.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
In this tall, narrow book, all manner of things that can fly are hidden under flaps. Kids are given clues in the riddles and additional ones are provided in the pictures. Opening the flap reveals the picture and the name of the correct animal or object. The items range from butterflies and bees to airplanes and hot air balloons, with a few fantasy items thrown in--a flying saucer and a superhero. Also in the series are I Can Roll!, What Am I? and Who Am I?
Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Upbeat, colorful concept books, each one illustrating 21 animate and inanimate objects that fly or roll on wheels. In both titles, a rhyming riddle on the verso is answered by lifting the flap on the right. Crozon uses creative examples of what can fly, such as a floating autumn leaf, a boomerang, dandelion seeds, and a superhero. Things with wheels include a caravan, a moon rover, a backhoe, a four-wheeler, and a chariot. However, the anthropomorphizing of some inanimate objects is annoying, as is the fact that they all have crossed eyes. Also, the rhythm of the riddles varies. Finally, some of the examples will be unfamiliar to preschoolers, and the books are unlikely to interest those who will understand them.-Diane Janoff, Queens Borough Public Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
I Can Fly! (14 pp.; Jun.; 0-8118-2407-1): Hurtling, tumbling, plunging, and hovering—everything that's hidden behind the flaps in this book are things that fly. Readers have to puzzle them out, using easy riddles and visual clues. A pointy spike protruding from a yellow-and-black striped abdomen hints of a bee; alongside helicopters, rocket ships, and paper airplanes, there are also boomerangs, and lightning bolts. Crozon's bold brushstrokes splash the background sky with movement, and spell out loop-de-loop vapor trails and swirled energy. (Picture book. 4-8)
