Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
When Sid tries to put on his favorite shoes, they just don't seem to fit anymore. He is perplexed. Have the shoes gotten smaller? At breakfast Sid's Dad assures him that the shoes are not shrinking but that Sid is growing. When Sid gets to school he talks to his friends about growing because he has learned from his mother that all living things grow. In school Teacher Susie takes the kids to the Super Fab Lab so they can conduct and experiment to watch plants grow. Also, the students learn a new word—transformation. Informative for kids who are just learning that they grow and that their brothers, sisters, pets and plants also grow. Sid even gets a new pair of shoes. The illustrations look like Claymation and appear to be stills from the TV show. The family is particularly unattractive as far as this reviewer is concerned. Part of the "Sid the Science Kid" series which is based on the TV show produced by the Jim Henson Company. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
