Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Hannah is a baby who has learned to crawl and is on her way—EVERYWHERE! And all Mama can do is call, "Come back, Hannah!" as she chases her speedy little explorer all around the house. Hannah is "faster than a crab at the beach." She plays a toddler version of Hide-and-Seek that all parents, grandparents and other caretakers of little ones like Hannah will relate to...and chuckle at. Every child who crawls, creeps or toddles will enjoy following Hannah's simple adventures around the house. There is a gentle, calm humor to the text. The full-color paintings that illustrate Hannah's tale set a cozy mood. There is both subtle humor and homey detail on each page, painting a picture of the loving relationship between Hannah and her mother. This is a delightfully age-appropriate picture book for toddlers, one that they will sit still for...and listen to again and again. 2001, Greenwillow Books/HarperCollins, $15.95 and $15.89. Ages 6 mo. to 4. Reviewer:Dianne Ochiltree
School Library Journal
PreS-In this third title about Hannah, the toddler is crawling. Each time she scoots away, Mama races after her, scoops her up, tells her how fast she is, and sets her down close at hand. However, there are so many things to attract Hannah's attention and draw her away. "Come back, Hannah," is the refrain as Mama chases after her. Descriptive metaphors compare the child to a crab on the beach, a mouse in the field, a lizard on a tree, and a bunny in the garden. After Mama writes a letter, exercises, makes a phone call, and picks up after the youngster, she reads her a story several times and puts her in her crib to nap. Gouache paintings extend the story nicely. The use of curved lines makes Hannah's home look comfortable and child safe. When she is with her mother, the text is boxed on one side of the double-page spread opposite an illustration. When she is off and running, the art takes up the entire spread, showing the child's more open, extended world. This realistic depiction of a day in the life of a toddler will make a nice addition to any preschool collection.-Kathleen Simonetta, Indian Trails Public Library District, Wheeling, IL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Though crawlers themselves may be a bit young for this, parents, caregivers, and siblings will appreciate the little perpetual motion machine called Hannah. "Hannah likes to crawl," it begins. Of course, before you know it, there goes Hannah up the stairs. "Come back, Hannah!" yelps her mom. And since mom isn't being much fun this morning, with her letter-writing, and exercising, and phoning, Hannah keeps crawling off in search of diversions. Each time her mother catches her and says a variation on "You are faster than a crab on the beach," like "a mouse in the field," or "a lizard on a tree." Finally her mother's tasks are done and the book shifts into lullaby mode, where they sit and read a book and get ready for a nap. The straight, declarative, and repetitious text is enlivened by artwork with colors that look like they could be spread as frosting on a cake, all wrapped in a home environment that looks particularly snug. Pair this with the author's The Line Up Book (1986) for a matched set. (Picture book. 2-5)
