Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
D. W. and Blankie have been together since the day she was born. One day D. W. looks in her special Blankie hiding place and it is gone. Mom, Dad and Arthur retrace their day's activities with no success. At bedtime D. W. cannot go to sleep without Blankie. Mom to the rescue, she had washed Blankie. And although it didn't smell or look the same, D. W. fell sound asleep. Based on the television show, Arthur, this is a delightful story about a day in the life of everyone's favorite aardvark family. 2000 (orig. 1998), Little Brown, $13.95 and $5.95. Ages 2 to 4. Reviewer: Karen Werner
Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati
Every child with a security blanket or special toy will relate to D.W.'s dilemma in this story about her search for her lost blankie. When D.W. discovers that her blankie is missing, she and Arthur search high and low, to no avail. D.W. has some interesting ideas about where the blanket might be-at a car wash, the library, or stolen by the Tibble twins. She is under a cloud all day because of her separation anxiety. At nighttime, D.W. is certain that she won't be able to fall asleep without it. Father assures her that mother will help him search for it when she gets home. As D.W. sits miserably in bed, Mother comes to the rescue with the newly washed blankie. Although it doesn't quite look or smell the same, D.W. can now fall right to sleep, with blankie resting under her cheek. Based on a teleplay by Tom Hertz.
School Library Journal
PreS-KAnother successful tale about D.W. and her brother, Arthur. This time the little aardvark has lost her beloved blanket and enlists her sibling's aid to find it. After a thorough search of the house with their father, they check the playground, the day-care center, the library, and even the car washall places where preschoolers spend lots of time. Arthur, as usual, plays the "straight man" to D.W. The book has a wonderful story line, one that will be familiar to children and parents alike, and each page is filled with Brown's delightful renderings of a child's world. The vocabulary is simple enough for even a very young child to understand. For example, D.W. postulates that "the big vacuum thingie" at the car wash sucked her Blankie out the car window! Thankfully for D.W. (and for children everywhere who need a security blanket), Mother saves the day. All is right with this tale, which will appeal to most youngsters, but especially those who still have and need their "Blankies."Elisabeth H. Hall, Arden Elementary School, Columbia, SC
