Pinwheel

Salina Yoon. Little, Brown/LB Kids, $12.99 (16p) ISBN 978-0-316-22176-4
Yoon follows Kaleidoscope (2012) with another well-executed interactive book, building her scenes around turn-wheels embedded within the pages as she takes readers across land, sea, and sky. “Field of flowers gently swaying,/ Bees a-buzzing, prancing, playing,” Yoon writes as two bees fly near a sunflower. Turning the wheel causes the flower’s center to shift from stripes to checkerboard patterns; on the next page, the same wheel makes a school of fish shimmer in pinks, purples, and blues. Other clever touches include a kite that spirals out from the page in this winning combination of lyrical writing and smart interactive design. Ages 3–up. (Apr.)
