Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Reissued in board book format, Oxenbury presents a multicultural group of babies doing things that babies enjoy. In this book they sing, run around, and bounce on the bed before they all fall down. Lap sitters will enjoy looking at the babies, hearing the simple words and joining in with their own renditions. The illustrations are full of humor as kids in a variety of different outfits enjoy lots of activity. Others in the series are Clap Hands, Say Goodnight, and Tickle, Tickle.
School Library Journal
PreS Each of these board books consists of four double-page illustrations with a brief rhyming action verse. Chubby little toddlers engaged in a variety of activities spill off the pages in lively arrangements. Close-up views show multi-ethnic babies playing, bathing, eating, swinging, sleeping, etc. The watercolors, in bright pastels with pencil outline, are clear and appealing on a white background. The primary disadvantage of this set is the oversize format (8 square). Tots will find these books hard to hold in their hands, and turning the pages will be frustrating. Older preschoolers who could manipulate the pages will find little story or plot to hold their interest. However, with an adult or older child turning the pages, these books will be enjoyed by the intended audience. Nancy Kewish, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Cleveland
