Publisher's Weekly Review

Part concept book, part word book and part nursery rhyme anthology, Fleming's (In the Small, Small Pond) vibrant picture-book hodgepodge surely lives up to its title. Exuberant spreads teeming with brightly hued animals, plants, objects and for the first time in Fleming's oeuvre a cast of children, introduce numbers, colors, the alphabet, body parts and seasons. Simple rhymes ("Cock-a-doodle-do!/ Hello! Good day!/ Good morning to you!"), most of them anonymous, are interspersed throughout, like gentle breaks between more learning-oriented pages. Fleming is at the top of her game, depicting a seemingly endless number of bold color combinations using her technique of "painting" with dyed cotton pulp and handmade stencils. Her richly textured compositions beg to be pored over and touched. Fans will delight in seeing familiar elements from many of Fleming's earlier works (In the Tall, Tall Grass; Lunch!; Count!) freshly updated here. And readers young and old will want to accept the challenge of finding the 119 ladybugs that crawl or fly across the pages of this lively outing. Ages 2-6. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Booklist Review

Ages 1^-4. Here's a book with a little something for everyone. There are poems, songs, animal names, parts of the body, seasons, and days of the week, just to mention a few of the topics covered. At the end of the book, there's even a seek-and-find math game that will entice children to look at everything again. What's best, though, is the unusual art. In a note, Fleming explains that the illustrations were done by pouring colored cotton fiber through stencils. The resulting bright colors manage to appear sharp, yet soft and fuzzy: a grasshopper in a backyard scene looks cuddly cute, and a pink slice of watermelon makes your mouth water. A table of contents, an unusual feature in a book for the the very young, is included. With so much variety, the book gives children the opportunity to find new things to look at, even after several viewings. --Marta Segal


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Animals of all kinds, lively insects and birds, and a diverse array of small children romp through this collection of simple rhymes, numbers and letters, and listings of familiar objects. The book includes everything needed to make it an anthology of preschool interests and concerns, from mealtimes to body parts. It even has traffic lights and trains. The very attractive illustrations, done in Fleming's characteristic bold and energetic style, were produced by pouring cotton pulp through hand-cut stencils, the result being simple forms that are attractively textured, with edges that are just fuzzy enough to look soft and friendly. The brilliant, warm colors are given depth and interest by the inevitable small differences in color produced by this process. Small children will enjoy pointing out the ladybugs crawling or flying or perched quietly on grass blades or leaves in almost every picture. There are, in all, 119 of them to be found, and doubtless young readers will spot every one. This is, indeed, an "Everything Book."-Marian Drabkin, Richmond Public Library, CA (c) Copyright 2010.
