Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Poor Wags. She can't enjoy herself because she worries about everything. She worries about playing hide-and-seek in the haystack. She worries about falling into puddles. She worries that the Farmer's Market is too dangerous. Wags' mother tells her it is not dangerous if she stays near. Those are famous last words! The Market is incredibly bright and busy. Soon Wags sniffs something delicious and lingers a little too long at the butcher's. Now Wags is a lost little puppy in a sea of people's legs and Wags is worried! We don't need to worry, though. This is an all-too-real fear for many children, that of being lost and alone in a crowd. The story of Wags reminds us that this is a common fear and fortunately, there is a happy ending to this charming tale of parent-child security. The book is a gentle reminder to keep our loved ones close, and not to be distracted by things that tease our noses or our hearts. The soft watercolor illustrations and sweet expressions are reason enough to make this a repeater at story times. Ending with a hug would be a great reinforcement, too! 2003, North-South Books,
