Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ramirose Attebury Wendt
This book in the "Eric & Julieta" series sees Eric in charge of watching his younger sister Julieta while their mother entertains a friend. When Eric decides to play with his cars, he is forced to make concessions to his sister in order to stop her from crying. Eric allows her to play with his red car but balks when she tries to push it down his ramp. After several rounds of crying from Julieta, the friend of the children's mother leaves, although it is unclear if the behavior of the children causes this directly. What is clear from the final page of the book is that Eric feels his mother is unfair for getting angry with him and putting him to work on chores. The interaction between the siblings is realistic and readers will perhaps feel a sense of injustice as Eric is punished at the end of the story. Entertaining illustrations are set off from the text by a ribbon of toothpaste, which plays a role in the story as well. Considering its inexpensive price, this book would make good entertainment for children interested in reading a fictional story.
