PreSchool-This simple and unassuming lift-the-flap book is divided into three chapters that show the insides of things that open, things that "it's best not to look inside," and something "we can't open"-a mother's pregnant tummy. Readers can see the clothes inside the suitcase, wires inside the TV ("Oh My! It's Complicated!"), and three different stages of an unborn baby's growth. Small in size, with hand-printed lettering, the book is childlike and accessible. Not only are certain basic concepts explored (open/close, inside/outside, can/can't), but young readers will also understand why an expectant mother's belly gets bigger. The illustrated objects are outlined in thick, brown watercolor. Colors are muted and murky, adding to the author's low-key approach. This multiuse title will give toddlers the power to explore and play on their own level.
