KIRKUS REVIEW

PLB 0-688-16795-0 A High, Low, Near, Far, Loud, Quiet Story (24 pp.; $16.00; PLB $15.93; Oct.; 0-688-16794-2; PLB 16795-0) Crews (You Are Here, 1998, etc.) explores opposites that are a part of a child’s daily experience; the full-color labeled photographs are ideal for pick-and-point toddlers and younger lap-sitters. Day and night, wide and narrow, loud and quiet—all make an appearance in home scenes, street scenes, and playground scenes that star a brother and sister, and sometimes their mother; the word “day” opens the book, and “night” closes it, but beyond this bracketing, the pairs of opposites appear on the same spreads. This simple book is certain to delight young onlookers and anyone familiar with Crews’s other creations. (Picture book. 4-6)
