KIRKUS REVIEW

An attempt to demonstrate divergent aspects of perspective is lacking a strong enough central theme. The bird sees things from on high, the worm from down below, and you from many angles,- on your knees, through the window, from a distance. Mr. Kessler's rendition of a popular subject with pre-schoolers is too haphazard to make a lasting impression. The illustrations, clear and in bright color illuminate the text very little. The invitation to draw what you see can only evoke response in inspired readers. Few youngsters will take crayon in hand.
