Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS

This charming book describes what it means "to be nice" through single words or simple phrases and expressive illustrations of animals created out of swirled acrylic paint, ink, and china markers. Laid out on solid-color backgrounds, the text appears in a variety of fonts and hues. Two blue koalas embrace atop a large, orange "cuddle." Two chicks "nestle" in the grass. For the word "LOOK," two owls gaze at each other; "...but don't stare" on the opposite page shows a green frog gawking at a red bird. Some of the words demonstrate and others remonstrate. Taken together, they allow children to grasp what adults mean when they say, "Be nice." A useful item for all picture-book collections.-Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH
