Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-In this imaginative poem, a young boy thinks about 10 different animals and theorizes about their favorite environmental conditions. For example, "If robins made weather,/trees would always be budding,/the grass fresh and green./And the melting snow/would set every worm awiggling." For hawks, "the wind would blow and blow,/rising and rising,/swirling and swirling./Hawks would stretch/their wings/and drift,/drift/down." Occasionally, the language is a bit challenging, but, for the most part, the text is lyrical and evocative. The artwork jumps out at readers with its vivid, 3-D-style, textured-paper collages. The animals form the centerpiece of each composition, while the boy, or some part of his body, appears somewhere in the background. Brightly colored backdrops help to pull the scenes together. In one eye-catching spread, three large bats take center stage against a pink sky, while the child, looking small in a field of spruce-green grass, gazes at them with arms uplifted. The pictures are masterful enough to tempt children to thumb through the book again and again. Wonderful for reading aloud or enjoying one-on-one, this enticing offering will also make a great jumping-off point for imagination games or creative writing.-Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Using an array of patterned, textured papers, Donohue creates colorfully dappled collage scenes for this child's rumination on what the weather would be like if different animals controlled it. Bauer's associations are sometimes rather free: Yes, frogs would have it wet; for robins, it would be perpetual, worm-rich spring; and "If flies made weather, / every day would be hot, hot, hot. / All the food would rot, rot, rot"-but would turtles really prefer to "snap their / doors shut and smile / in the dry dark" while lightning flashed outside? Or geese to see frosty lawns and hear the sky "sigh / with the lonely cry of / 'Going. Going. Gone' "? Dancing off to bed, surrounded by animal toys, the child closes by claiming all weathers for his own. Bauer turns the rhyming on and off like a switch, but she introduces a thought-provoking theme for young poetry readers or listeners to consider. (Picture book/poetry. 5-7)
