Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Noah puts his blue crystal pee wee marble inside the salt shaker, which he closes inside a small cereal box, which goes inside a recipe box. "Noah, WHAT are we doing?" asks his sister, Jenny. "Playing," he replies. The text is a discussion of the cumulative game the boy calls "Inside, Inside, Inside." Jenny's words are set in green type and Noah's in blue, matching their pajama colors. Meade cheerfully mixes cut-paper collage and watercolor, and sprinkles many homey details into the large and small scenes of the various rooms visited as the children dump things from ever larger containers to use in their game. At midpoint, having made the enclosed shower the final "inside," they get out art supplies to draw the scheme ever outward-house, neighborhood, town, state, solar system. "This takes a long time, doesn't it, Noah?" His lovely response is, "Mom says art's worth it." A marmalade cat observing the activities is one of the many appealing touches in this well-conceived scenario. The big brother, younger sister characteristics emerge nicely, the messy game is fun, and the concept draws a useful lesson from creative play. The dialogue text offers many possibilities for independent, read-aloud, or paired reading, and librarians and teachers might find innumerable choices for pairing the story and concept with other books.-Margaret Bush, Simmons College, Boston Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Stilted text and a convoluted concept cause this latest effort from Meade to flounder. In conversational-style text, a sibling pair creates an imaginative game in which they start with a minuscule object and place it into subsequently larger and larger containers, beginning with a small marble and ending with everything inside a clothes hamper tucked inside a shower. Mead then segues from the children physically manipulating the objects for the game to letting them illustrate the concept in elaborate drawings that eventually expand to encompass the Solar System. The idea and game are clever; however, their execution in a picture-book format for young readers simply does not work. Preschoolers will soon be lost under the weight of the wordy text and older readers-who could really embrace the concept-may be put off by the format and illustrations oriented towards a younger audience. Truly a book caught betwixt and between, this is hard put to be placed inside any category. (Picture book. 3-8)
