Editorial Reviews

Schertle''s ( All You Need for a Beach ) rhyming stanzas are succinct, and she gives readers plenty of opportunities to chime in with animal and vehicle noises; colored, standout fonts highlight these sounds for extra effect. McElmurry''s ( Mad About Plaid ) gouaches recall the heyday of Golden Books in their combination of vividness, naivete and sweetness, and her rich palette achieves verisimilitude that is no less satisfying for being nostalgic." - Publishers Weekly, starred review (4/28/08) "Schertle''s ( All You Need for a Beach ) rhyming stanzas are succinct, and she gives readers plenty of opportunities to chime in with animal and vehicle noises; colored, standout fonts highlight these sounds for extra effect.
