What Is Part This, Part That?

Overview


Song-like rhyming text invites readers to guess what different components add up to. For example, a secret's part whisper, part keeping mum, and a certain kind of fruit is part peach and part plum (a nectarine). When you're on the equator you're part south and part north, and a certain kind of chair is part back and part forth (a rocking chair).

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Tom Slaughter's work in Do You Know Which One's Will Grow?:
ALA Notable Book Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year
"Slaughter's brightly colored cut-paper shapes recall favorites of 50 years ago—a feeling reinforced by this book's fun-to-flip gatefolds. [He] revels in paint-box primaries...for maximum visual charge." —Publishers Weekly
"White space is creatively used and die-cuts steal the show." —School Library Journal, starred
"Slaughter's illustrations bring pop art to mind." —Kirkus Reviews, starred
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—"Just like a bee is part buzz and part sting, a rap song is part talk and part sing." This title is part picture book and part riddle. Ziefert keeps young readers and listeners thinking with provocative questions and statements, such as, "Is this glass part empty, or is it part full?" and "Steps in a staircase are part down and part up." The final page, which is devoid of picture clues, quizzes readers with additional examples, such as, "What musical instrument is part cymbal, part drum?" Slaughter employs a stylized look with blocky, angular shapes and primary colors on matte paper. Various interactive elements are scattered throughout. Some pages have sturdy flaps that open up; others have a die-cut or small flap. The font is bold with some words having a stenciled appearance for emphasis. This concept book could be a good filler between storytime tales.—Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
