Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The illustrations in Laden’s newest board book are cute and comfortable, but the characters are not always easy to recognize. While some of the animals pictured are easy to distinguish (e.g., the bee), it may be difficult for young readers to identify some of the other, less clearly drawn animals (e.g., the monkey). However, with an adult’s assistance during the initial reading, young readers will soon memorize the short and catchy text and be able to anticipate each illustration. Each picture has a cutout where the animals face would be; by placing the child reader’s picture in a space provided on the inner back cover, readers can see their own face on each animal’s body. This allows “babies and toddlers [to] see themselves as adorable animal characters.” Unlike some other cut-out books, this board book is sturdy enough to survive heavy circulation, which is good because its catchy concept, colorful illustrations and easy-to-read, enjoyable text are sure to make it popular with children ages 3 to 24 months, as well as their parents and caregivers. It is highly recommended for purchase by parents and public libraries. Reviewer: Meagan Albright
