Shea’s book debut is a clever, rhymed test of kids’ notions of living and nonliving things. Slaughter’s illustrations bring pop art to mind. Clear a space on the shelves for this one.

— ☆ Kirkus Review


This is a great thinking book that reads like a fun game. Ages 4-6 will love opening the flaps to see which silly question is posed next. A great guide to help little ones differentiate between living and non-living things. It should become a favorite book for early readers.

I love books where kids have to think a little before they make predictions about what will come next.

I loved Q is for Duck.


The kind where kids are sitting on their knees by the second page, dying to see the pictures so they can predict what will come next.

Do You Know Which Ones Will Grow? really is one heckuva quality product. Fun and attractive. Consistently interesting with enough interactive qualities to engage even the most lethargic of kids, the pairing of Shea and Slaughter really knock his puppy out of the park. If you’re looking for something to engage a clever kid and a bored adult, this may be your best bet. It fires on all cylinders. A keeper.
