Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jackie Fulton
Life cycles are the focus of this interactive non-fiction book. Young children will learn to become nature detectives as they utilize textual and visual clues about a sea turtle, butterfly, polar bear, bird, and frog to answer the question “What Will I Be?” An illustration of the animal in its infancy is contrasted with an extreme close-up lift-the-flap to dramatically reveal the critter transformed into adulthood. Counting and sequencing are reinforced with a four-step illustrated description of the animal’s growth. Brightly colored digital illustrations are the perfect combination of scientific and whimsical to make this a favorite interactive learning book. The sturdy construction, rounded page corners, and tough paper make this book engaging for pre-readers who want to explore with their hands. Meanwhile the large print text, sequencing, and friendly wide-eyed critters will appeal to beginning readers. The endpaper offers a chance for kids to review what they have learned with a matching game. Reviewer: Jackie Fulton AGERANGE: Ages 2 to 4.
