Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Readers get to know seven playful young animals in this addition to the Who’s That? series. “Who’s that splashing?” reads a typical spread, above a pondful of yellow ducks and a burst of words reading “splish splash.” The facing page explains, “I am a duckling. I have a beak and webbed feet.” Elsewhere, readers are introduced to a bounding puppy, a pair of tussling bear cubs, and some penguin chicks. It’s a lively primer on baby animals, the noises they make, and the things that make them so cute, from lambs’ “big, brown eyes” to a piglet’s “short, curly tail.” Available simultaneously: Who’s That? Eating. Ages 2–5. (Sept.)

Adorable photos of ducklings, bear cubs, penguin chicks, piglets and more at play. Each picture is set against a solid background and shows various critters splashing, play-fighting, leaping and chasing. The left-hand page is a broader shot of the animal at play in its environment; the puppy chases a ball through a field as the text asks, "Who's that bounding?" An accompanying sound effect (BOING; SPLISH SPLOSH; SQUEAL) in a lively typeface is printed on a strip that is the same color as the background. The facing page shows a close-up of the animal and shares two simple facts: "We are lambs. We have big, brown eyes and soft, woolly coats." One body part or feature of each young animal is labeled with a dotted line to encourage grown-ups to name parts of the photo with youngsters. The companion book, Who's That...Eating? See How the Animals Eat (978-0-7534-7070-1), follows an identical format, but here, the focus is on the eating habits of adult wild animals, such as giant pandas, otters, squirrels and anteaters. Some expressive and vocabulary-building words (gnaw, slurp, nibble and chomp) describe the various animals' actions. Both this and its companion are winning additions to this effective nonfiction series for the youngest learners. (Board book. 18 mos.-4)
