From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-- Two books that present a typical day on the farm or in the jungle. The narrative is simply captions for the illustrations. Farm Day 's obvious text ("The farmer drives his big red tractor") is not enough to make it a first choice. Jungle Day is more interesting because its topic is more exotic, with elephants squirting water, hippos in warm black mud, parrots flying, and monkeys chattering. Henley, a graphic designer, has good illustrative instincts. Her gouache paintings, composed of strong blocks of color outlined in white, will engage young eyes. Each picture's single focal point, usually one or two animals combined with the restrained use of pattern and simple actions, make these particularly suitable for the toddler set. Additional purchases for public libraries. --Karen K. Radtke, Milwaukee Public Library

From Publishers Weekly:

In these companion volumes, glowing illustrations and minimal text guide youngsters through these intriguing environments. The verso of each spread presents one or two sentences describing the activities of various animals--and the farmer, who "drives his big red tractor." Also on the farm, a rooster crows (nearby chicks block their ears), pigs chow down at their trough, ducks splash through puddles, horses gallop and, true to their nature, "the goats eat all the flowers in the garden." In the jungle, monkeys cavort, hippos wallow and "parrots fly in and out of the treetops." Henley's verdant landscapes and tropical-hued animals are outlined in white, giving her lustrous illustrations an almost electric quality. Each of these sunny books depicts an invitingly tranquil, colorful day. Ages 2-6.
