Vivid illustrations really make this book stand out. Fuzzy, textured, and warm, the detailed pictures are rendered almost entirely in carefully torn paper and cut cloth. The result is pictures you long to touch.

If kids look closely they'll see stuffed toys accompany the little girl as she makes her way through the playground, giving hints as to what kind of animal she will be next. Kids who notice this all on their own will feel ahead of the game -- it's a bit like that "look mom!" moment when they conquer a new physical feat at the playground.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
