Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Dib, Dab and Dob are three cute little ducks who help kids with a variety of concepts and projects. In the "Play and Learn" series, this title encourages kids to understand relative sizes and the meaning of words such as tall, short, big, small and the like. The illustrations are signature DK: bright, colorful and high quality. Kids are asked to select the image that meets the size criterion posed in a question. Find the smallest, biggest, tallest, etc. A useful book to help young children get ready for school.
School Library Journal
PreS--These bright, bold books will be a big hit with preschool audiences. Each one utilizes the same three yellow, fuzzy, stuffed ducks, Dib, Dab, and Dob, to assist children in learning the various concepts. Full-color photographs of the objects appear on single or double-page spreads along with simple questions. In Colors, youngsters are asked to pick out certain items from those displayed in the margins ("What blue things can Dab play with at the ocean?"). Numbers begins with "1 One kitten" and continues through "10 Ten toes," "20 Twenty buttons," and "100 One hundred cars." Shapes prompts readers to take a closer look at everyday objects ("This window is a square. Are windows always square?"). Sizes compares tall and short; thick and thin, etc. For libraries that can't keep concept books on the shelves, these will be welcome additions.--DeAnn Tabuchi, San Anselmo Public Library, CA
