Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This quartet of Words for Everyday books is a pleasant but undistinguished offering in a crowded field. Each of the books' eight spreads depicts one familiar object (or animal) and identifies its individual components or appurtenances. Thus the parts of a teddy bear (Toys) are ear, arm, head, leg and foot; a Mealtime place setting consists of a plate, knife, spoon and fork. Vocabulary choices are for the most part useful and age-appropriate. Davenport's cut-paper artwork is marked by sharp color contrasts and a generally realistic presentation (Garden's kid-like tree being a notable exception), but the overall effect lacks flair. Ages 2-5. (Mar.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
This small sturdy book has bright colors, straightforward illustrations, and simple text to introduce words for every day. A great way for parents, teachers and other caregivers to introduce vocabulary to kids just beginning to take an interest in books.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1Word books in four distinct categories feature everyday animals and objects. Full-color illustrations are stylized and stand out well against boldly colored backgrounds. The names for the item and its parts are highlighted in black print, e.g., the seed, skin, core, and stem of an apple are shown and labeled. Toddlers will enjoy looking and pointing at these familiar things, and beginning readers can use these titles to add to their sight vocabulary. Not particularly exciting, but serviceable.Linda Wicher, Highland Park Public Library, IL
