Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-- The activities and objects that make up a toddler's world are illustrated here in pale, washed-out primary colors that are less than lively. Few words and simple rhymes take a toddler through a typical day from beginning to end. Hennessy catalogs waking in the morning; a young child's play; a ride in the stroller; a visit to the supermarket, library, and park; then bathtime and bedtime. Breakfast is ``Bowl, Spoon, Plate, Cup,'' while bathtime is ``Bath, Towel, Soap, Bubbles/ Splash, Kick, Little Puddles.'' The day ends with ``Lap, Clap, Peek-A-Boo/ Kisses, Hugs, I Love You.'' Introductory letters A-B-C-D are featured on a child's toy blocks and numbers from one through four can easily be detected on ``Roof, Chimney, Window, Door'' during a walk through town. Indoor settings such as kitchen, bedroom, and library appear cluttered, while street scenes and panoramic views of the town are busy, so that objects are not eye-catching and action is never clearly defined. The illustrations lack Anne Rockwell's simplicity of color and shape that work so well in a first book for the youngest set. --Megan McDonald, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
