Editorial Reviews

Carousel
One of a series of books that introduce different ideas and concepts to young children. The simple rhythmic words encouraged dialogue between child and adult and introduced feelings related directly to the child's own experiences. Sturdy and robust turning heads provided different outcomes to discuss every time so that children did not become bored with the book - simple, but most effective.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The child's face on the cover can either smile at you or offer a frown. Part of the "Pick & Choose" series, these board books have a face that can be turned on each page. The questions posed range from "Does Grace like driving her car?" To "Would Liam like a cuddle?" There are lots of toys and activities in this board book and toddlers look at a few choices and get to make a decision. Depending on the child's mood or desire just to have fun, the frowns and smiles can easily flip. They seem to be secured fairly well and they are easy to turn. The toddlers are simply drawn without excessive detail relating to them or their surroundings. The children have dots for eyes and just a line for the smile or frown but the illustrations are colorful and have a child-like look. Kids should be able to identify with at least one of the characters since they are different sexes and represent a variety of ethnic groups. The book should empower kids and also be useful if they are not talking—it can serve as a way of communicating. Other books in the series include Bed or Bath?, Carrots or Peas?, and Wind or Rain?
