Boom Boom

School Library Journal

“This large, brightly colored picture book with very few words revolves around a class of preschoolers experiencing the four seasons. . . . A solid choice for the very young.” – See more at: http://books.simonandschuster.co.uk/Boom-Boom/Sarvinder-Naberhaus/9781442434134#sthash.3hmSsiSc.dpuf

Kirkus Reviews

“This exploration of seasons featuring a multicultural group of preschoolers is sure to please its target audience…very young children will benefit from the repetition and enjoy the range of perspectives and emotions provided by the artist who created Ella Sarah Gets Dressed (2003). Familiar seasonal fun for the young.”

Horn Book

“Authentically childlike emotion and characterization is portrayed through the mixed-media art…Hear, hear! to this playful romp of a book.”

Publishers Weekly

“What from the title and cover appears to be a celebration of the noisy excitement of a thunderstorm turns out to have a broader aim as readers follow a classroom of preschoolers through four seasons’ worth of explorations…Understated yet evocative.”
