Publisher's Weekly Review

In simple rhythmic verse, Samton (The World from My Window) has created a vibrant, visually exhilarating excursion into the world of color. Walking along the bay, a child observes a succession of brightly colored creatures and objects: a yellow lizard family, a pink snail, red sailboats, blackbirds nesting among white stones, and so on. One by one, they become part of the scene, which grows in richness, color and complexity as the child's walk progresses. Bold, skillfully composed graphics and a singsong text turn the naming of colors into a provocative experience. A Junior Literary Guild selection. Ages 2-6. (September) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
