Review
  • PreS-K—Part color book, part search-and-find, this simple and eye-catching board book is sure to please the youngest of patrons. A boy is getting ready for school and needs to locate essential items, including his socks, pencil case, book, and lunch box. Each missing item is hidden among the everyday clutter in his house. Bold black-and-white illustrations with bright backgrounds highlight the missing object, which appears in a contrasting color. The story has a sweet ending: the child thanks his mom for tracking down all of his belongings before he boards the school bus. The last page reveals all of his missing items and names the colors they represent (teal crayon, yellow ball, green marbles). VERDICT This new twist on the traditional concept book is great for the preschool crowd and is suited to lap reading. A charming purchase for most primary library collections.—Jasmine L. Precopio, Fox Chapel Area School District, Pittsburgh --Jasmine L. Precopio (Reviewed 05/01/2017) (School Library Journal, vol 63, issue 05, p58)
  • /* Starred Review */ Light’s scribbly, detailed drawing style and careful use of color are ideally suited to a seek-and-find story, and this one is equal parts stylish and fun. While preparing for school, a boy asks readers to help him locate his socks, pencil case, and other items. His questions and comments appear on left-hand pages (“I need to find my crayon”), surrounded by a bright color that Light uses to highlight each hidden object (the teal crayon is tucked among toothbrushes in the bathroom and further masked by the blue wall behind it). Through the boy’s busy, messy morning, Light reminds readers that there’s a world of things to see and do before the school day starts. Ages 2–5. Agency: Wernick & Pratt. (June) --Staff (Reviewed 06/19/2017) (Publishers Weekly, vol 264, issue 25, p)
  • A getting-ready-for-school book for little ones who are learning their colors.A pink-cheeked white boy is getting ready for school in the morning, but he needs readers' help in finding something in each spread. On the verso is the spare text. "Time for school. Where are my socks?" The background of this page is pink, the same color as the socks readers are trying to spy. Black-and-white ink drawings fill the recto pages with scenes inside the boy's house, outside his brownstone, and on the sidewalk waiting for the school bus, the item being sought the only spot of color. The boy's family includes a dad in a shirt and tie, a little sister, and a mother with a ponytail and a skirt. The final page lists all eight items and their colors, including a crayon, a robot, a pencil case, a ball, a book, some marbles, and a lunch box. The colors include red through blue, purple, pink, and teal. Light's illustrations are filled with lots of details—enough to make spotting each colored object something of a challenge—and adults sharing this with toddlers can easily give them more items to find, match, and count and thereby extend the fun. This may turn the dreaded morning routine into a game, and what could be more welcome than that? (Board book. 2-5)(Kirkus Reviews, July 1, 2017)
