KIRKUS REVIEW

In another recycling of Zolotow’s past works (see review, above), this new version of a 1971 title that was illustrated by Leonard Weisgard takes a circular approach. Paparone follows the awakening of young animals (in children’s clothes) to a day of sunshine and play. A flip of the book (so it reads from back to front) prepares them and readers for sleep; “trees whisper/the birds are still” in a comfortably contemporary setting, where a dinosaur mobile hangs from the ceiling. The morning colors are citrus bright and energetic, while the night scenes appear in hushed shades of indigo. A pleasing edition: The book’s rotations mimic those of day and night in a way that toddlers will comprehend. (Picture book. 1-6)
