Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Like an exuberant, slightly older sibling to The Everything Book, Fleming's latest concept book invites preschoolers to show what they know by shouting it out. Mouse, a recurring critter in the author's works, seems to have infiltrated a preschool class. Against speckled backgrounds of brilliant pink, orange, green, and purple, Mouse scampers through zippy images of numbers, letters, colors, animals, and modes of transportation. On each spread, exuberant, multiethnic children—mouths open wide—appear to yell out the names of the featured objects, visually encouraging readers to do the same (and make no mistake: there will be shouting). Fleming brings a new dimension to her signature pulp-painting technique, using swatches of patterned paper collage and marker accents on her figures. The approach gives everyone more prominent features and allows the kids to be portrayed in joyous full bellow. Children just learning their colors, animals, and ABCs will be invigorated, and those who have already mastered these basics will still enjoy the top-of-their-lungs review—as well as Mouse's asides along the way. Ages 2–6. (Mar.)
From the Publisher

“Denise Fleming turns up children's volume…What is there to shout about? Pages feature bright illustrations of what children this age do know: letters, numbers, colors, animals. This isn't about SAT coaching. It's about being happy sharing your knowledge.” --Chicago Tribune

"Learning to read has never been more fun or easier. ‘READ! Read it again!’ will surely be the refrain heard anywhere this book is shared.” --BookPage

“Fleming’s signature style—brightly colored mixed-media artwork—is well suited to the exuberant text…this is sure to become a staple for concept themed story hours.”--Booklist

“Filled with vibrant colors and patterns, Fleming’s illustrations are peopled with a multicultural cast of rosy-cheeked, wide-eyed preschoolers with huge mouths open wide to shout. Created by pulp painting, which is a method of making paper by pouring colored fibers through stencils, here complemented by paper collage and a variety of drawing media, the artwork begs return examination.”--Kirkus Reviews

“Grownups, get your earplugs ready; story time is about to get loud.”--Horn Book Magazine

“This book will help give confidence to reticent children and add liveliness to storytimes. It makes a great companion to Fleming’s The Everything Book (Holt, 2000) and will be requested time and again.”--School Library Journal

Children's Literature - Claudia Mills
From the bright-bright-bright red cover where a wide-wide-wide open mouth shouts out the book's title, to Fleming's own wide-wide-wide open mouth in the author/illustrator photo on the back flap, this is an exuberant, enthusiastic, no-holds-barred, shout-out for enthusiasm itself. An open-mouthed teacher tells her students, "Everybody loves to shout. So, if you know it, shout it out!" And then open-mouthed children of various races and ethnicities begin shouting out brightly colored and patterned numbers and letters of the alphabet, big round balloons full of color words, and names for happy animals and common modes of transportation (car, truck, bus, plane), all presumably heading off for more enthusiastic fun. A very small mouse adds his commentary (in very small print) on every page, making the book perfect for lap-sharing as well as for group read-alouds. Or, should I say, shout-alouds. A big shout-out to Denise Fleming for reminding us that, to borrow from William Blake, "Mere enthusiasm is the All in All!" Reviewer: Claudia Mills, Ph.D.
School Library Journal
PreS-K—A small mouse leads readers through an exuberant review of basic concepts. "Everybody loves to shout. So, if you know it, SHOUT it out! Ready. Set. Go!" Children will be only too happy to comply: numbers 1 to 10, the alphabet, colors, names of animals, and modes of transportation are enthusiastically presented. The colors chosen to make up the backgrounds on the spreads vibrate with energy, and the children are painted open-mouthed in mid-yell. Pulp painting with accents of pastel pencil, china marker, colored india inks, and patterned paper collage create their own energy. Fleming's wild shades and patterns add to the fun of simply letting loose and encourage children to show off what they know. This book will help give confidence to reticent children and add liveliness to storytimes. It makes a great companion to Fleming's The Everything Book (Holt, 2000) and will be requested time and again.—Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI
Kirkus Reviews - Kikus Reviews
In a similar vein to The Everything Book (2000), Fleming papers her pages with standard elements in preschool curricula and encourages kids to shout out what they know. Beginning with numbers, she moves on to letters and colors, presented as balloons. Names of common pets, farm animals and modes of transportation round out the text. Throughout it all, an amusing little mouse provides some comic relief and gives young children the opportunity to scour the illustrations to find him. One of the final pages presents all the letters, numbers and words on a single spread, allowing "mouse" to show off all that he knows. Labels in a simple type encourage children to make the connection between the pictures and the writing. Filled with vibrant colors and patterns, Fleming's illustrations are peopled with a multicultural cast of rosy-cheeked, wide-eyed preschoolers with huge mouths open wide to shout. Created by pulp painting, which is a method of making paper by pouring colored fibers through stencils, here complemented by paper collage and a variety of drawing media, the artwork begs return examination. From the opening sentences to the mouse's bow at the end, this has storytime written all over it: "Everybody loves to shout. So, if you know it, SHOUT it out! Ready. Set. GO!" (Picture book. 2-6)

    Very educational!

    This book is great! It is fun and educational. All the letters are included along with numbers one through ten and colors. There are also animals and transportation methods. My two year old niece loves to read this book and shout out what she knows.
