Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-- A dialogue/ game about the way we see things, about looking closely at nature in order to appreciate its wonder, and about our part in the overall scheme of things. It's a simple game in which one participant names something and the other must describe it (i.e., ``A cave is . . . a place to get lost in and a place to find your way out of''). In this new edition of Stolz's 1968 book (HarperCollins; o.p.), both text and illustrations have been revised and updated. The descriptive game is played by a boy and his father who are fishing from a rowboat; the earlier version shows a boy painting on an easel. New full-page realistic color paintings, which have a childlike quality about them, have replaced Edward Franscino's pale watercolor-washed pen-and-ink cartoonlike illustrations. This is a book that needs to be presented by an imaginative adult who will continue the game with young listeners. Its text, which can be used to stir both creativity and language skills, could provide an effective jumping-off point in elementary language units. As a simple read-aloud, it may well fall flat. --Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
Leone McDermott
While fishing with his father, a little boy asks him to "say something" about the world around them. The father answers with poetic and imaginative descriptions of grass, sky, wind, and other parts of the natural world. A brook is "a watery hallway where the fish and the otter swim up and down peering in doorways"; snow is "a shawl for the north wind's shoulders." Each description is matched with a double-page painting in deep, warm hues. Koshkin plays with color and proportion to show the world from an intimate, childlike perspective. In one illustration, the little boy gazes at a yellow moon close enough to touch, while giant moths fly through head-high snapdragons. This gentle book could be shared between two or used at story time to spark a similar game of descriptions.
