From School Library Journal:

PreS A topnotch trio of board books. In a Red House is a color concept book featuring eight familiar toys. The color and the name of the toy comprise the text on each page, below a large illustration of the toy. My Friends features eight familiar young animals. A young child appears on the last page with the words, ``All are babies like me!'' Where We Sleep tells where animals familiar to most children sleep. Unusual words like burrows and thicket will help children expand their vocabularies. The last page features a young child with the text, ``And I have a crib!'' The style of art in all three books is the samesimple realistic watercolor illustrations finely outlined in black ink. The illustrations are isolated on a white background but sometimes stretch off the page. The animals resemble paintings in Tafuri's other books, such as Have You Seen My Duckling? (1984) and Rabbit's Morning (1985, both Greenwillow). This simply crafted attractive toddler series is engaging enough to hold the interest of even one year olds, who soon will be able to recite the text to themselves as they page through the small, easily held books. The series is as notable a contribution to the toddler collections as are those board books by Helen Oxenbury and Jan Ormerod. Jean Gaffney, Dayton and Montgomery County Public Library, Ohio

From Publishers Weekly:

Two of these three board books by the Caldecott Honor-winner are among the best of the genre. My Friends shows that "bunnies, a fawn, a puppy . . . are babies just like me!" Where We Sleep tells the very young that "bunnies have burrows, fawns have thickets . . . cubs have dens . . . and I have a crib!" The concept behind them is clear and eloquent; children will delight in this game of linking relationships. In a Red House continues an overall theme of a child's perspective of the world, but it adds up to little more than a genial listing of colors: "Pink bunny and a gray truck are all in my own blue room!" Large, all-cap typeface has the unfortunate effect of "screaming" the text; it doesn't match the understated tone of these companionable books. Ages 9 months-3 years.
