Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jillian Kobelin
Follow along to a day of school with the Skip Hop animals in this lift-the-flap book! Each animal wears their own backpack to school, and kids can lift the flap in the backpack to see what snack can be found inside! Little Bee brings honey and crackers in his bee backpack, little Elephant brings apples, and little Ladybug brings bugs in her ladybug backpack! As a new animal is introduced, he or she joins the others while participating in their favorite school time activity. Little Monkey loves recess, and little Penguin's favorite part of the day is snack time. The last page shows each animal's respective backpack, and the flaps open to reveal a picture they will take home to their families. This book is fun for animal-loving little ones, encouraging fine motor skills with opening each flap. This book would be a fun treat for children heading off to preschool or kindergarten for the first time. This board book is based on the actual backpack line by Skip Hop, so little ones can have the book and backpack at the same time! Reviewer: Jillian Kobelin
Kirkus Reviews
A branded lift-the-flap offering featuring five Skip Hop animal backpacks. On each double-page spread, a creature uses the Skip Hop pack that it resembles. A bee, which is somehow able to wear a backpack despite (impossibly) having no limbs at all, is paired with the popular bee pack, and a penguin sports a penguin bag. On the left-hand page, the toddlerlike, cartoon animals, in subtly muted colors, are shown either on their way to school or engaged in preschool classroom activities. The facing page is a large representation of the Skip Hop backpack, the bottom-half of which is a relatively sturdy flap. The text, with a gentle rhyme scheme, consists of a simple first-person statement made by the character in the spotlight, along with a question encouraging readers to open the flap: "I'm a little Ladybug. I love story time best! / What food is inside my backpack?" The answer to the query is on the lower half of the flap, which opens down: "Bugs! Didn't you guess?" The last two pages inform readers that school is over and show all the backpacks, again bearing flaps, lined up in classroom cubbies. Behind the flaps, the packs contain artwork created by the animals that relate to their interests, such as the elephant with a picture of the savanna and the monkey with a drawing of a tree. While a clever idea, as young children are often obsessed with bags and packs, parents wishing to avoid the overt marketing ploy should seek another title. (Board book. 18 mos.-3)
