Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—Reminiscent of the bustle of Richard Scarry's "Busytown" (S & S), this oversize German import is divided into four sections, one for each season. At the start of each section a full page highlights several different community members, such as Pedro, who "loves to sing and play his guitar," and a cat. "Cassie travels all through the town. Can you find her in each picture?" The cartoon picture puzzle echoes Martin Handford's "Waldo" series (Candlewick). Each season is represented by seven spreads that feature cross-sections of buildings and a wealth of detail across the surrounding landscape. Viewers follow characters along their everyday activities from page to page throughout the year as the community and its members undergo changes. The illustrations are charming, and the thorough details guarantee joyful exploration.—Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ

From Booklist

This oversize identification book, similar to Richard Scarry’s volumes, opens by introducing a cast of characters for children to find as they explore eight different scenes throughout each of the seasons. Myriad details of people, places, and events, colorfully drawn in cartoon style, will have youngsters examining the pages for hours, flipping back and forth to see seasonal changes in cutaway buildings, on a farm, around town, and much more. Any given character’s appearance during a season or throughout the year conveys a story, much as in Mitsumasa Anno’s travel books. The book design, with different color borders for each season, makes the process of comparing and contrasting scenes easier. Great for generating discussions with an ESL population, this book is best shared individually or in small groups as the images and details are small, even if the pages are large. Preschool-Grade 2. --Patricia Austin

5.0 out of 5 stars I absolutely love this book
By Amazon Customer on June 29, 2018
I love this book. I bought it for my 18 months son, and don’t know who loves it more. So many details, so many stories can be made up. Maybe it’s a bit early for my son, but he loves to listen to the stories, look at the pictures and point to details he likes with his finger. This book attracts his attention for 15 - 20 minutes, it’s much more than any other book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful detailed picture book, very little racial diversity
By E on January 23, 2019
Very cute book, my kids love to just flip and talk about all the things they see. I do wish there was more racial diversity pictured in the illustrations however. Some of the characters have slightly darker hair or skin but there are very few.
