Podcast featuring this book

A simple yet sophisticated look at things both similar and different is presented in this clever and attractive title. Like a chain of inter-connected Venn diagrams, the concept on each spread directly links to the next page. An airplane, bird, and group of bees are examples of things that fly. Turning the page to striped things, the bees remain, but the others are replaced by a zebra and banded snake. Set theory is attractively portrayed with bold cut-outs in basic red, green, yellow, blue, and with black and white. Varying page layouts and clever groupings make this concept book a striking circular read. CCBC Categories: Concept Books  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
