Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Do you know about Grow's glow? Earning starred reviews and chosen as an ALA Notable selection, this striking nonfiction book explores the differences between living and non-living things. School Library Journal declared it "a standout concept book [that's] engaging, fun . . . and a favorite for storytimes or one-on-one settings." (App also available.)

Review:

"Slaughter's brightly colored cut-paper shapes and newcomer Shea's verse recall favorites of 50 years ago — a feeling reinforced by this book's matte pages, blocky images, and fun-to-flip gatefolds. 'If a duckling grows/ and becomes a duck,/ can a car grow and become...' reads the text on facing pages; children will be able to guess what's coming even before the gatefold opens — 'a truck?' Slaughter (Which Way?) revels in paint-box primaries, pushing reds, greens, yellows, and blues up against each other for maximum visual charge. The gatefolds break in interesting places — halfway down a garment hanging on a hanger, for example, turning a floral sweater into a full-length coat — and contain the occasional die-cut, too. Shea's verses scan consistently and gracefully. 'YES to ducks, bears, and owls./ NO to trucks, chairs, and towels,' she writes, reinforcing the idea that living things grow but inanimate objects don't. The beauty of the rhymes is that they teach a lesson children already know; children will relish the fun of being sure of all the answers, and they'll love Shea's tongue-in-cheek tone. Ages 4 — up. (May)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

If a cub grows and becomes a bear, can a stool grow and...become a chair?

Synopsis:

A duckling grows and becomes a duck, so can a car grow into a truck? This beguiling book about growth will sparks kids'imaginations, as gatefolds playfully transform a watch into a clock and a shovel into a plow. The interactive format of question and answer will entrance young readers as living things that grow are compared to inanimate objects that don't. Ingenious!
