Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—This book features cardboard pages with die-cut holes, clean graphic-style images, and contrasting colors and patterns. Readers think they are seeing one thing and then a page turn reveals something else. The high-contrasting colors are great visuals for babies, but as the book progresses the patterns get more complicated and preschoolers will be able to appreciate the meanings behind them and make connections between the objects. Each spread contains minimal text, mainly animal noises and repeating words. This is a book to grow with, seeing something new with each repeated viewing. It is purely a concept book and has no real story line, but it will still be enjoyed every time it is picked up and shared.—Lora Van Marel, Orland Park Public Library, IL
Children's Literature - Marcie Flinchum Atkins
If you are looking for a good board book for a baby gift, this is an excellent choice. Each page asks the reader "What do you see?" The very young picture reader can look at graphics on the page to identify what they see. Each page has a cut out, framing the pattern underneath. On one page the cut-out frames a house. When you turn the page, it reveals a patterned floor with a cat walking across. You can still see the house on the left hand side. Each page leads the reader to another concept that is related. Rain boots lead to a striped umbrella. When you turn the page, the stripes from the umbrella look like rain, and there is a snail slogging through the rain. Each page has solid colors and graphic patterns. This book works from birth, when babies like to look at patterns and bright colors, to preschool age, when you can have children identify the creatures, objects, and colors in the book.

Kirkus Reviews

Images build from home routines to outdoor scenes and back and forth again.

Two pages introduce a natural pairing, an authoritative "Look!" follows and a final sentence announces an interconnected addition with its accompanying sound effect. "Bubbly soap / add some water / [page turn] Look! / Here comes a sudsy duck! Quack, Quack!" The repetitive format encourages participation; brevity commands attention. A distinct palette defines boundaries while transitioning from one sequence to the next. Die-cuts hide a portion of the larger spread; each of these detailed blocks serves a dual purpose. In one of the most successful concepts, the idea of nourishment for baby to bird takes flight: A baby-bottle cut-out reveals a patterned spread of berries at which a winged nibbler pecks. A predictable conclusion unites all the major players, from yarn to teddy bear. Look Who's There! presents the same innovative design as insects and ocean-dwellers journey through separate settings from the dirt in the ground to the sandy seaside.

A joyous display of visual discovery, simultaneously strategic and seamless. (Board book. 6 mos.-2)
