Functional insofar as any picture book can be said to have a function, 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.

This is a great book for teaching the difference between inanimate objects and living things. The question-answer format invites readers to guess what will grow and what will not. The rhythm and rhyming text will keep readers trying to predict what inanimate objects may grow into.

“If you look around you’ll see, / Some things grow like you and me.” Kids know that they’re growing but what else does so? With rhyming text Susan Shea asks kids if one thing grows, will another? For example, “If a cub grows and becomes a bear can a stool grow and become . . .” Lift the flap and the stool elongates as the text finishes with “a chair?”. Time and again living things are paired with inanimate and the readers are asked if they will grow. Finally at the end of the book all is made clear (“Yes to cows. Yes to snakes. No to plows. No to cakes.”) With great panache the book is an entirely new look at growing things and what it means to be more than just big.
