School Library Journal - 12/01/2016 PreS-K—Bold, colorful illustrations dominate this nearly wordless book about a mother and her child walking outdoors and noticing new things in nature. The boy cries, "Mama, LOOK!" as he comes across insects, fish, and other animals. Each "Mama, LOOK!" page offers a clue as to what will be discovered next. Young readers should be encouraged to find the clue and guess what might be coming. The illustrations appear to be mixed media, perhaps including painted and cut paper—the trees are spectacular. Other things, like the animals, are painted in a realistic way. Flowers are stylized and seem to come from a hot, sunny climate and are rendered in a variety of sun-shaped orbs with hot pinks and yellows. This simple book would be fun to read outside with youngsters who are encountering the natural world, and would also be a wonderful inspiration for art projects. VERDICT Recommended for preschooler storytimes and one-on-one sharing.—Mary Hazelton, formerly at Warren & Waldoboro Elementary Schools, ME - Copyright 2016 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
