School Library Journal - 04/01/2013 PreS-Gr 1—Adding minimal two- to four-word captions that call attention to the depicted animals and actions ("Look! An elephant eats."), Lewin presents a gallery of African creatures on their own or in small groups. With typically luminous, impressionistic watercolors he opens with a close-up of a child's wide-eyed face, closes with the same child surrounded by toy animals and books ("Look! A boy reads."), and in between captures giraffes leaning down to drink, a gorilla peering shyly through a screen of vines, a herd of galloping zebras, and six more animals. All are easy to identify and naturalistically posed. Emergent readers will relish decoding the text; thoughtful youngsters might also catch the subtle link forged by the boy's imagination between his toys and their living counterparts.—John Peters, Children's Literature Consultant, New York City - Copyright 2013 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
