Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
A little girl stuffs a big green pocketbook full of treasures from a daylong outing with her mother, and then loses it! The purse is found (we knew it would be), the treasures are recaptured, and the hero is richly rewarded. This slight tale is enriched with expressive cartoons by Felicia (If You Give A Mouse a Cookie) Bond.

    Beautiful book!

    Our kids (boy and girl) love this book. They ask for it time and time again. It's sweet and has gorgeous illustrations. None of us ever tire of this book. This is a book that I'd love to give to all kids.

    Wonderful story of a mother/daughter day

    This is a simple story of a mother and daughter sharing a day together. My first graders enjoyed the story and its simple yet playful language.
