Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tima Murrell
Come follow ten little animals as they work and play through their day. Bright and colorful illustrations capture readers' attention, while questions about the animals entice them to search the page for little clues. At the bottom of each page are shown nine items the child can also search and find in the big picture. The artwork is eye-catching and entertaining. Children could spend quite a bit of time examining all of the objects on each page. This is a perfect book for teaching children about progression and identifying items. The storyline begins in the morning, and it ends when the little animals go to bed. The plot conveys a sense of family and community. The animals are small, and children will be able to identify with them. The book is large enough for a parent to spread across the lap so their child can interact with the story. Perfect for repeat readings. Reviewer: Tima Murrell
Kirkus Reviews
Pastel collage scenes of small animals at work and play offer the Oshkosh set opportunities aplenty to interpret and respond to visual busyness. The activities are captioned by a mix of descriptive comments and leading questions ("They can't wait to eat their breakfast. Have you noticed that they all like to eat different things?") and supplemented by strips of labeled details to spot. The story, such it is, describes a commune of 10 anthropomorphized animals who rise together and then go on to eat, play, visit a grocery store and a farm, and at last get ready for bed. Billet dresses her stylized, bright-eyed puppy, sheep, koala and other nursery schooler stand-ins in human clothing, places them against pale, flattened natural or urban backdrops, and surrounds them with easily identifiable tools, toys, foodstuffs, wildlife and other figures. Nine selected items parade across each spread's bottom with a "Can you see…?" challenge and one-word (mostly) identifiers. Sugary, but just the ticket for tykes not yet up to more teeming I Spy–style panoramas. (Picture book. 2-4)
