KIRKUS REVIEW

A double-ended book showing scenes from farm, woodland, city, and school, first by day and then, by turning the book over and beginning again from the "back," at night. The large format and extremely large type make this an ideal book for group sharing. Children intrigued by the novel layout are likely to match up the corresponding pictures--those who are careful will discover that there's actually one more daytime spread. Tafuri's fans will recognize the gray-and-black speckled hens from Early Morning in the Barn (1983), the marmalade cat from Junglewalk (1988), and even one of the sweet brown dogs from Who's Counting? (1986). From beautiful mixed-media artwork is fashioned an elegantly simple graphic demonstration of the neverending cycle of day and night. (Picture book. 3-7)
