Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Set up like a guessing game, this book is meant to introduce very young children to the unique sights of a very different world-China. Day by day, a baby wakes up from her nap to see something strange, such as brilliant red fringe, a mountain of spices, or the startling make-up of the Monkey King in a Chinese Opera. The reader first sees each of these images as a small, close-up photograph, then, turning the page, sees a two-page spread of the whole scene, with the baby and her family engaged in the action. The attentive reader will also find a red apple and a baby doll in each picture. But while the photographs are extremely sharp, they are not particularly attractive or engaging, and most of them seem far too cluttered to be meaningful to very young children. Although some readers may enjoy looking for the apple and the baby doll in each picture, others will find them incongruous and annoying, and, frankly, the doll's odd placement in many of the photos may strike youngsters as strange and scary. Overall, there is a sort of "homemade" feeling to this book that leaves the reader more puzzled than enlightened. This is the fourth book in the "Look What I See! Where Can I be?" series. 2003, Platypus Media, Ages 1 to 3.
— Barbara Carroll Roberts
School Library Journal
PreS-An infant narrator explains what she sees during a week's travel in China. ("On Monday, I fell asleep on a velvet cushion. When I woke up, I saw a red fringe. Where was I?") On alternate spreads, small color photos depict the identifiable objects that are mentioned, which become part of a larger, family scene when the page is turned. Astute observers will also notice the baby doll hiding in each large picture. Some of the terms, such as trishaw, opera, and Forbidden City, are rather sophisticated for the younger listeners, which makes it difficult to determine the best audience for this book. However, the book's interactive style may engage youngsters and offer a simple introduction to another culture.-Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
