Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Striking dioramas illuminate a busy autumn day, underscoring the intensity and determination that children bring to play. Each page looks like a stage set, complete with props. A doll awakens and her world springs to life as her friends-a cat, polar bear, dinosaur, paper crane, ball and more-greet the new day with her. From the breakfast table, yellow leaves in the garden beckon, and throughout the day the leaves are ever-present, delicate as blossoms. Time passes in an intense flurry of activity, interrupted for just a moment by a thunderstorm. The day ends as it began, the doll beneath the ``warm, red quilt'' with gray cat snuggled close. The illustrations are impressive for their clarity, their detail and their ability to convey the energy of a child's day. In contrast, the soothing text is relayed in the voice of a parent speaking directly to a child (``Now you close your eyes and sleep''). Emphasizing comfort, security and friendship, the words work as a lullaby, moving and intimate. Ages 3-up. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
PreS-K-A gentle text coupled with enchanting illustrations make this story a standout. As a reassuring voice recalls the events of a golden autumn day, a cast of cherished toys act them out. A sweet-faced doll sleeps beneath a colorfully cross-stitched comforter, while a soft, sock-puppet cat curls up nearby. In the morning, they are joined by other friends: a fluffy stuffed polar bear, a green clay dinosaur, a folded-paper crane, a shiny yellow ball, and a bright blue car with bottle-top wheels. After a hearty breakfast, the companions head outdoors to play, listen to a passing train, and get swept up in a rain storm. As the shadows grow long, they head inside to prepare for another cozy night. Bang uses simple, poetic phrases that stir the imagination: ``Rain beats down on you. Wind swirls the rain in circles, sweeps it sideways, lifts you up to fly like yellow leaves.'' The even pace and gentle tone of the language lull readers into a mood of comfort and security. Photographed to retain their three-dimensional quality, the collage constructions create a wonderfully detailed miniature world. Varying angles and perspectives make the pictures more interesting and realistic, while bright yellows and greens capture the warm light of fall day. By weaving together evocative language and skillfully crafted illustrations, Bang brings these inanimate objects to life.-Joy Fleishhacker, New York Public Library
Deborah Abbott
A group of toys--a clay dinosaur, a yellow ball, an origami crane, and a homemade car--enact the adventures of a child's normal day with a doll, a stuffed gray cat, and a white polar bear. After breakfast the group plays outside in the autumn sun. The world opens up as the participants listen for sounds, feel the wind and rain, and watch the yellow leaves fall from the tree. The afternoon includes painting, reading, hugging, and raking until it is time for supper, a bath, and bed, and the promise of another busy day tomorrow. Many young children will easily identify with the simplicity of these commonplace events. Although the dust jacket says that a mother is recalling the day for a child, the voice of the narrator is ambiguous. Reproduced in crisp color photographs, the precise collage art, depicting elaborate three-dimensional scenes, carries a sophisticated appeal that may be appreciated more by the adults who read the story than by their young audience. The sense of detail is exact, from the small plastic bottles of food coloring (paint containers) to the homemade car with bottle-cap wheels. While the art is visually fascinating, it has a certain static quality and stiffness that does not match the flowing text. An unusual offering for the picture-book set.
