Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
These two entries in the Vicki Cobb Science Play series carry prefatory notes to the adult that could seem off-putting on a first encounter of Vicki Cobb. Read with a mirror, a flashlight and a ball? Have ready a number of containers and a lock of hair. Be near a sink! But, the design of the notes themselves immediately alert the newcomer to the vivacity and frolic that readers first found in Cobb's Science Experiments You Can Eat (HaperCollins, 1994) and have loved about her kind of science ever since. The note in I See Myself uses an uneven, bouncy yellow font that forms a cone of illumination cast from a flashlight. In Julia Gorton's hands, the stylized art articulates the sharp lines, brisk colors, and defined geometry that recall Colorforms, a cultural reference that points assertively to the books' call to the imagination. The bold patterns of the endpapers establish the book's visually "retro" attitude. In turn, that attitude infuses the subject and substance of these lucid, involving books that return to the familiar to imagine it, to discover it anew. Not only do they invite readers "to do the activities, without rushing, as they come up," but also they ground the reader with the recognizable and familiar. Both I See Myself and I Get Wet show a child character interacting with her/his domestic environment. Respectively, the girl observes and manipulates her surroundings as she learns about the reflective properties of light, as does the boy when he learns about the cohesion of water. Just as water magically climbs a strip of paper towel, so do these books perform magic in making awesome science discoverable by the hands and minds of young children. This review was written toaddress I See Myself and I Get Wet. 2002, HarperCollins, Mercier
School Library Journal
PreS-K-Two basic concept books, one about the fluidity of water (Wet), and the other about the reflection of light (See). The initial page in each title is essentially the same, and Cobb suggests that adults should read this "Note to the Reader" in order to use each work to its best advantage. She advises that children listen to the text and stop to perform the simple experiments before reading continues. The equipment needed is readily available, and experiments are simple enough that youngsters can feel proud to have accomplished the tasks by themselves. Colorful illustrations, which appear to be generated by computer, range from visually appealing and clever to just plain boring. The text line can bounce off at an angle as in reflecting light or form the shape of a drop of water. Useful introductions for preschool science.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
