SUE WILLIAMS is the author of the acclaimed picture books I Went Walking and Let’s Go Visiting, as well as Dinnertime! She lives in Adelaide, Australia, where she is also an editor and publisher of children’s books.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1-The familiar, frolicking, redheaded kid from Williams and Vivas's I Went Walking (Gulliver, 1990) is back along with his farmyard pals. The text reads, "Let's go visiting./What do you say?" as the child and his dog meet "One brown foal...ready to play." The same refrain is repeated as two red calves, three black kittens, and so on, enthusiastically join the crowd. Finally, the boy and his friends "curl up and sleep in the hay." The same rhyming, repetitive text pattern; open-page design; and appealing illustrative style that made the first title perfect for preschool storytime are featured once again. Unfortunately, the foreshadowing that made that book such fun to read aloud is missing. Without its visual clues that add an extra element, children will not be able to guess what group of animals will next appear. The count ends abruptly with six yellow puppies. Despite these quibbles, however, it's likely that this book will be popular with young readers and listeners. The illustrations, simultaneously soft and bright, are alive with creatures barking, running, meowing, and wallowing. The simple text with its repeated refrain will have audiences chanting along in no time. Librarians who must choose between Walking and Visiting may want to stick with the original adventure. Most youngsters will enjoy both.
