Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Animals offer clues to their identities in this book, made from 100% recycled materials: "My pointed horn is hard to miss... and makes it hard for me to kiss! What can I be? What do you see?" Lifting the flap reveals a rhinoceros hiding behind a rock. While the subdued color palette and modish illustrations have appeal, the images themselves may be too muted for readers to become fully engaged. Ages 2-5. (May)

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
It is good to go green, so Simon and Schuster is producing a series of "little green books" made from one hundred percent recycled materials. In this title, a young girl peers through a pair of binoculars. What does she spy out in the bamboo? Lift the large flap, and there is a black and white panda munching on bamboo shoots. Keep turning the pages and lifting the flaps to meet a monarch butterfly, blue rhinoceros, sea turtle, and snow leopard—all of whom are endangered species. These animals can be saved through efforts by kids like you, the text notes. The book is enjoyable, fun and informative, with a call to action not only to kids but all of its readers. Do not miss the back cover with its little piece of trivia. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Kirkus Reviews
The road to heck is paved with intentions like the one that produced this book. "I'm black and white, / but I don't moo. / I'm a fussy eater / who likes bamboo. / What can I be? / What do you see?" The child listening to this text will see a murky forest of muddy green shoots and, upon lifting the flap, a black-and-tan panda, thanks to the environmentally responsible 100-percent recycled stock it's printed on. Part of the Little Green Books series "for green readers," it's undeniably eco-chic. Equally undeniable, however, are its limitations for use with an audience that depends on high-contrast images to get its visual cortex stimulated. A well-intentioned miss. (6-24 mos.)
