Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
03/10/2014
Koko, Alex, and their curious “explorer” friends return in a companion to My Big World and Head to Toe. In this outing, they take a wide-ranging look at the animal kingdom (the explorers get in the spirit by trading their usual pajamalike outfits for woodland creature costumes). Games, recipes, and activities are interspersed among informational pages that answer questions like “What is an animal?” and “What do animals eat?” while also looking at animal families, how animals are born and grow, and where they live, among other topics. The eye-catching digital graphics, engaging characters, and many reader-directed prompts pair well to keep children flipping pages. Ages 4–up. (May)
New York Journal of Books
“Filled to the brim with colorful, kid-friendly illustrations of an endless parade of all things animal.”
Smart Books for Smart Kids
“The illustrations are lovely, yet simple, and truly draw children into the learning experience.”
