Booklist Review

Ages 2^-4. The plain text is in rhyme, and clear, detailed colorful pictures outlined in ink show kids playing at preschool, first individually and then making friends. Part of the Harper Growing Tree series, this will draw children into the pages, first to point at the pictures and name the toys ("We see a little girl who has a train. And a little boy who has a plane"), and then, in the second half of the book, to enjoy the simple story as the characters pair off ("You can push my truck." "Want to float my duck?"). Whether they choose clocks or blocks, trains or planes, the diverse cast of girls and boys have fun together with their favorite toys. --Hazel Rochman

School Library Journal Review

PreS-This rhyming book teaches object identification and how to get along with others, to make friends, and to share. Set in a preschool classroom, the story first features children playing independently with objects that rhyme. "We see a little boy who has a block./And a little girl who has a clock." Later pages show classmates offering to share and interacting with friends. The pictures are clear and bright with plenty of white space highlighting the youngsters at play.-June Roberts, Pennington Elementary School, Nashville, TN (c) Copyright 2010.
