Editorial Reviews

Booklist Advanced Review, November 2011: Wick\u2019s latest seek-and-find book begins in a toymaker\u2019s workshop, where an unpainted wooden train set and many other wooden toys and parts can be seen. A rhyme challenges children to find 20 things among the hundreds of tiny objects. The next 11 double-page spreads follow the toys\u2019 progression as they are painted, displayed in a shop, received on a birthday, left on a bedroom floor, and repurposed in scenes involving a snowy mountain, a circus, and a dollhouse. Forgotten in an attic, they reemerge at a yard sale, receive repairs, and find new life in a toy-land cityscape. Wick\u2019s puzzle design and picture composition are as masterful as his photography. An appended note offers insight into the book\u2019s subject and acknowledges the \u201cteam of artists\u201d who contributed to it. The handsome endpapers, depicting the toys in soft-edged drawings washed with gentle colors, contrast nicely with the bright, crisply delineated photos. Like other books in the Can You See What I See? series, this book offers practice in visual-discrimination skills as well as a great deal of fun. - Carolyn Phelan
