Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Size is relative. That's easy to see when you browse through this book's categories—big and small; big to small; small to big; big, bigger, biggest; small, smaller, smallest; long and short; thick and thin; tall and short; same size; different sizes; and what size. Each concept is illustrated with brilliantly-colored photographs of familiar objects. Big and small, for example, is illustrated with balls (a basketball and a tennis ball,) shoes (an adult and a child's gym shoe,) and flowers (a sunflower and a rose.) Objects are clearly labeled with their names. Questions are posed on each page, like—"Can you see something square? Can you point to the red shoe?" Different balls, giraffes, and breads are shown on the last page to challenge children to recognize and describe sizing themselves. This book can be used on several levels—1) identifying sizes and relationships, 2) reading the object labels, 3) reading and answering the questions, or 4) any combination of the above. Other books in Two-Can's "My Very First Look at" series include Colors, Numbers, and Shapes. 2001, Two-Can Publishing,
— Chris Gill
School Library Journal
PreS-Jaunty photographs of everyday items from sneakers to candy set double-page scenes for discussion in these two concept books. In Numbers, children are asked to identify the objects on a page and then asked a question about them, e.g., "two shoes/What color are your shoes?" Unfortunately, the queries may confuse. A page on which youngsters are asked to "point to the orange ball" shows a basketball and a beach ball that has an orange section. This book also asks, "Which is your favorite" three times, as if the author ran out of questions. In the busy Sizes book, Gunzi challenges youngsters to differentiate between thick and thin, long and short, as well as the typical big and small. Visual misconceptions appear when looking at "same" and "different." The pictured items appear approximately the same size on the page, but in reality are greatly diverse-which is the child to address? These books fail in their execution.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
