Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Bonnie Bruneau
Read along and watch the little child in the story jump, play, run, etc. He goes through the day playing outside, exploring, helping his mother in the kitchen, etc. The day ends when he is tucked into bed for the night. Children are active and seem to have an unlimited supply of energy. Bring a smile to your face and young readers when you share the antics of this happy, active child in this energetic and uplifting story.
School Library Journal
PreS-An energetic preschooler bounces, slides, wiggles, runs, dances, hides, cooks, sings, and reads through the day-and finally snuggles in bed with a hug and a kiss from his parents. Lively, sun-drenched watercolor paintings on double-page spreads show an inviting summertime world. The outdoor scenes are filled with grass and flowers as the round-faced, blue-eyed child and his shaggy-haired dog splash through a brook and roll down a hill. The indoor scenes are more peaceful and cozy. Each phase of the day-waking, eating, playtime, bathing-is described in a short rhyme that uses the same verse form as "The Farmer in the Dell": "Bouncing on the bed,/I'm bouncing on the bed./The sun is up./The day is new./I'm bouncing on the bed." (The text could be sung to the same tune, too.) With the large pictures and the familiar activities described, this book would be a good selection for toddler time, and the infectious rhythm of the verse will invite participation from preschool storytime participants.-Marian Drabkin, Richmond Public Library, CA
Hazel Rochman
Ages 1--4. With simple words and clear, light-filled watercolors, this picture book features a toddler who acts out an idyllic day, from bouncing on the bed at sunup to snuggling down at bedtime, "happy to be me." Each double-page spread shows a joyful activity --- sliding down the stairs, wiggling, running, rolling, splashing, dancing, hiding, playing, singing. Sometimes Mom and Dad are there: cooking ("She stirs the pot. I lick the spoon".) reading ("He says the words. I turn the page.") and a small dog is in every picture ("I throw a stick. He fetches it.") The sounds of the words with repetition and occasional rhyme are part of the sense ("Thump, thump, thumpety") and, like Zita Newcome's Toddlerobics (1996), this will have young preschoolers joining in the playful movements and chanting along. --- (Hazel Rochman, Booklist)

Kirkus Reviews
Combining saccharine visuals with a monotonous ditty, this book follows a child from morning wake-up to evening snuggle-down with no fewer than 13 stanzas modeled on "The Farmer in the Dell" and static illustrations in which the young, chubby-cheeked narrator, whose wide eyes are generally looking off to the side, is awkwardly posed-sometimes floating slightly-against generic indoor and outdoor scenes. His mother looks about ten, his father perhaps five years older. The author and illustrator have done much better work in the past; pass this up in favor of Nancy White Carlstrom's evergreen Jesse Bear, What Will You Wear? (1986). (Picture book. 5-7) .
