From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-A picture book with questions and answers about different animal behaviors. "Why do kittens purr? Because they're happy, deep inside their fur." "Why do puppies pat their paws, raise their rumps, twirl their tails? To say, `Let's play!'" "So why do bees buzz? Just because!" The rhymes vary in length, pattern, and rhythm, creating an uneven flow, but children will enjoy the onomatopoeic words. The acrylic-and-colored-pencil illustrations depict a wide-eyed little boy and are similar in style to those in Henry Cole's Jack's Garden (Greenwillow, 1995). The first two spreads show realistic settings. With the third question, "What makes lions roar?" the child's imagination takes over-a roaring lion appears alongside the dining room table, lily pads float at the bottom of the stairs, wolves howl on the sofa, and more. While the lack of a smooth transition from reality into fantasy is a bit confusing, once they are in the world of imagination, young readers will enjoy the story. Preceded by a picture of hibernating bears, the return to reality is more gentle: the lights are out and the moon is shining in on the boy and his stuffed animal friends in bed. Children will appreciate this clue and want to find all of the toys in the previous pages. While some of the pictures lack inspiration, the best of them have wonderful details, both obvious and hidden, and the representation of nature is exact and beautiful. Readers who enjoy Bauer's My Mother Is Mine (S & S, 2001) will appreciate this title.-Carolyn Janssen, Children's Learning Center of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH
