Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Toddler-PreS—The classic combination of an open-ended question ("Who's That?") paired with lift-the-flap revelations yields a fun addition to storytime read-alouds for the very young. Each title in the series focuses on toddler-friendly subjects—vehicles, jobs, and animals. A limited palette (blues, greens, and white in Arctic Animals; purple, green, and yellow in On the Go; and blue, green, and orange in When I Grow Up) combines with simple shapes to give Carpenter's art a retro-style appeal. Busy compositions will encourage extended conversation about the settings and characters in these interactive offerings. [Page 61].

All kids dream about what they'll be when they grow up&;and this fun book, with its guessing game format, introduces toddlers to different professions. By listening to the clues in the text and looking closely at the illustrations, children try to figure out whether the person hidden under the flap is a doctor, lawyer, teacher, firefighter, cop, or vet. A final spread shows everyone together!
