Tana Hoban's photographs have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and in galleries around the world. She has won many gold medals and prizes for her work as a photographer and filmmaker. Her books for children are known and loved throughout the world.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 6?Hoban has once again taken the format that she used for Look Again! (S & S, 1971) and Take Another Look (Greenwillow, 1981) and created a superb visual experience. Readers are invited to look through the hole cut out of a black page and to guess the identity of the object underneath. The next page reveals the full object; the following page shows it in its environment. Nine widely varying subjects are featured, ranging in difficulty from the obvious hide of a giraffe to the subtle fabric of a toy sailboat, to the sparkling intricacies of the Eiffel Tower. What looks to be spots on a cow turns out to be the breast feathers of a penguin, shown on the next page with its flock. Hoban's full-color photographs, always beautiful in their simplicity and clarity, encourage children to be aware of their surroundings in a new way, viewing details that they would usually overlook. Whether they can identify the object is not so important; rather, the pure design in this book opens up youngsters' imaginations to many possibilities.?Helen Rosenberg, Chicago Public Library, IL
