Editorial Reviews

Stuart Miller
Action words get an exciting visual treatment in this simple book for preschoolers. Using torn-paper collages in a rainbow of colors, Ayliffe shows monkeys swinging, chickens scratching, and koalas clinging to trees. One of the best spreads highlights the word "burrowing", and shows a whole world underground. Rabbits and foxes and hedgehogs tunnel underground, while worms slither here and there; aboveground, a colony of bunnies frolics. Ayliffe's touch with collage is quite remarkable. Not only is she able to create delightful animals, but her scenes are also vibrant, bursting with energy. A fun way to increase vocabulary.
