Carole Lexa Schaefer and Pierr Morgan have collaborated on many books, including Dragon Dancing and Someone Says, a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year. They both live in Washington State.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2—This offering takes readers back to the ethnically diverse, cooperative, child-led classroom depicted in Dragon Dancing (Viking, 2007). On a "gray drizzle day," indoor doings depend on the power of imagination. With themes for free play suggested by the real-life action outside the classroom's plate glass window, simple playthings—blocks, toys, dress-up bits—offer plenty of inspiration for open-ended activities, enhancing games the children make up themselves and encouraging invention and exploratory thinking. Chairs become seats on the yellow school bus, and kids become firefighters, clowns, dinosaurs, showmen, royalty, and even a family of bears. Schaefer's text offers invitations for readers/listeners to interact by supplying sound effects, identifying words for colors printed in appropriate hues, and guessing the roles kids will play when the page turns ("Riders....Firefighters....Dinos like us!"), while Morgan employs a calligrapher's touch to superimpose colorful fantasy-play figments of the kids' imaginations on their more commonplace classroom components. Who should buy this book? Teachers and librarians like us!—Kathy Krasniewicz, Perrot Library, Old Greenwich, CT
