Review by Kirkus Book Review

The bunny and mouse duo from Looking for Colors with Lily and Milo (2017) returns in a new outing to gather treasures in the woods.On a rainy, windy day the two set off to explore the woods while leaves fall, fruit trees shed their apples and pears, forest creatures (hedgehog, snail, owl, and squirrel) provide some intrigue, and the sun finally appears. The somewhat more mature and levelheaded Lily continues to provide her experienced guidance to the curious and exuberant Milo. When they come across a variety of bright-red mushrooms with white spots, Lily wisely states that though they are pretty to look at, "We can't pick mushrooms.They have to stay in the woods." Lily creates a nice centerpiece from her collection of leaves and such, while Milo can't seem to choose and brings everything he can carry home. The text consists of short, declarative sentences translated from the original Dutch and also includes sporadic interactive elements that ask children to consider various items on the page. Toddlers stay engaged by selecting the appropriate clothing from a list of choices, by finding a spider away from its web, or by looking for acorns and pine cones with Milo. Charming characters are outlined in black and filled with bold colors and set against pale backdrops.The thick, durable pages make this perfect for multiple readings and page turnings for the youngest listeners.
