KIRKUS REVIEW

 A companion to One Sun (ALA Notable, 1990), with slightly less inspired monosyllabic pairings involving toddlers and their interests (``brown crown,'' ``fun run,'' ``shirt dirt,'' etc.). As usual with this ``photo-illustrator,'' the color photos are crisp and cleanly composed, the multiracial tots appealing, the educational content multifaceted, and the explanatory notes both exemplary and amusing (``This `shot plot' of energetic two-year- olds was no `click trick.' But, we ended up with a `snap wrap' in a `smile style'''). (Nonfiction/Picture book. 1-6)
