In this appealing search-and-find informational picture book, readers join a little boy named Toshi as he and his grandmother explore six of their favorite places --- the riverbank, the town, the forest, the country, the park and the beach. At each location, Toshi finds treasures to add to his collection, from a dragonfly wing to a glittery rock to a guitar pick. Best of all, his grandmother always knows what everything is! Each scene is featured in a full-spread illustration, with lots of potential treasures labeled. Following that is an activity in which readers help Toshi identify his found treasures from each place by matching them to related items (for example, pink peony petals matching the peony plant, and a coin matching the coin purse). Answers at the back of the book reveal interesting facts about them all, adding context. The animals that Toshi and his grandmother encounter are also shown at the back of the book. Using an innovative technique that mixes fiction and nonfiction, this book is the perfect resource for life science lessons on habitats and the environment. It encourages observation skills, curiosity and critical thinking --- building blocks for studying science. This book would be a terrific inspiration for a trip around the neighborhood in which children can find, identify and draw treasures of their own. It could also be used as a starting point for storytelling, in which children imagine the story of a treasure --- Toshi's or their own --- before it was found.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-K—A walk through any landscape with a small child can be a wondrous thing. A branch, an insect wing, a shard of pottery, and a soda can tab all become objects of fascination. In this book, Toshi receives a bright red backpack from Grandma, to hold all the things he gathers on their walks. The two stroll along a river, into town, and in the forest, among other locales. Each place is presented on a spread and is filled with small, carefully labeled items that a child might pick up. Conversations on these pages are limited to a statement and response—often Grandma identifying an object or one or the other making an observation. A page of larger images of the labeled "treasures" follows for children to match with something on an opposite page: for example, a gingko leaf pairs with a tree, a tuft of wool with a sheep, and so on. The book ends with pictures of other "Little (and Big)" things and animals that Grandma and readers may have noticed on these walks and additional, occasionally useful, information on some of the items they have spotted. Charming, delicate line-and-watercolor art against white pages features flat expanses of color denoting walkways, water, and seasonal foliage and loads of items to scout. VERDICT The stop, look, and identify character of the book echoes the leisurely, exploratory nature of the duo's walks and engenders repeat visits.—Daryl Grabarek, School Library Journal
