Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A young, fluffy dog helps his dad with various outdoor chores, ending with a cuddly nap in a hammock. Ages 3-6. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1Once again, Janovitz has come up with a winning rhymed book that incorporates the humor, wit, and gentle interaction between the father/son duo introduced in Is It Time? (North-South, 1994). Cub is eager to help Wolf in the garden. The well-thought-out, evenly flowing rhyme, "Pull the weeds, plant the seeds/Do the mowing, help with hoeing," lends itself to cheery chanting with each repetitive, growing verse on alternate pages, making the concept of working together really fun. Soft watercolors predominately in pale hues of blue and gray enliven the amusing mishaps as the two "gardeners" progress with their chores and end the hard work with a loving hug and well-deserved nap. A light and bouncy story that's a pleasure to read aloud over and over again.Rita Soltan, Baldwin Public Library, Birmingham, MI

    A great book for all little helpers!

    My 2 1/2 year old daugher loves this book. She can relate to being a helper. And as a parent, the book reminds me how important it is to let her help, even though some problems may arise. (Can I help you lift the pail, can I help you mend your tail? Spoken after the wolf drops the bucket on daddy's tail) Lovely drawings, a pleasure to read.
