School Library Journal Review

PreS-These lift-the-flap books about the five senses give young children an opportunity to find out what a cat and a dog hear, see, smell, taste, and feel in the house and in the garden. Three of the double-page spreads in each book feature a list of five questions opposite a colorful watercolor painting with flaps. Each sensory question lines up with one of the five horizontal flaps illustrated with the particular part of the body to which it refers. For example, "What did Tuna hear?" is opposite the flap depicting the ears of the cat. When the flap is lifted, readers learn that Tuna hears a robin; the rain; and later, inside the house, she hears herself purr. The books will be too difficult to manage for storytimes due to the multiple horizontal flaps, and possibly, for some small hands. However, the large illustrations, simple language, and sparse text make them appropriate for one-on-one sharing.-DeAnn Tabuchi, San Anselmo Public Library, CA (c) Copyright 2010.
