Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-K Rockwell has created a friendly world of play in her newest concept book. Using the same format and style as in Things That Go (Dutton, 1986), she presents ten categories of things that children use at play: those that are noisy, that are quiet, to play with in the yard, on the sidewalk, at school, in the park, at the beach, on snow and ice, at a party, in your room. She gives each a double-page spread of bright and appealing illustrations, showing animal youngsters at play. Kittens play hopscotch; foxes jump rope. Rockwell even shows pigs contentedly playing with mud. Animal grown-ups appear when needed to assist little ones (big bear holds bear cub's paw as they walk down the street; Mama and Papa panda help little panda to ice skate). Rockwell carefully arranges the simple text of each illustration, and makes a game of matching playthings with their names. Young children can enjoy this delightful book on their own, and will certainly want to share it with a friend or grown-up. It is a fitting companion to Things That Go, and an asset to any juvenile collection. Jane Tighe , Baltimore County Public Library
