Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Messages about good and bad behavior and personal grooming fill the colorful pages of this board book. "Do change your socks every day Don't make anyone smell them" and Do read a book at bedtime Don't stay up all night!" are a few of the behavior tips. Cartoon-like illustrations add to the humor. Part of a series of books by Parr which includes The Okay Book and This is My Hair.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-A set of clever, small-sized offerings illustrated with boldly outlined minimalist drawings done in primary colors. The round, stick-figure characters are presented with green faces, yellow faces, blue hair, and green hair, and are often amusingly out of proportion. Do's and Don'ts is a balanced selection of the advisable and the ludicrous. "Do help keep the house clean/Don't vacuum up the cat." Alternating silly and serious suggestions makes the sensible advice palatable for kids. The Okay Book is a refreshingly agenda-free affirmation of individuality. "It's okay to wear two different socks...It's okay to wear glasses...It's okay to eat all the frosting off your birthday cake." Things That Make You Feel... gently reminds readers of the balance in their lives, "Good chicken soup/Bad chicken pox." This Is My Hair is straightforward and humorous: "This is my Hair in pigtails/This is my Hair with spaghetti and meatballs in it." A short, but appropriate message from the author at the end of the book states, "No matter how your hair looks, always feel good about yourself." All four titles offer reassuring and kindhearted lessons.-Christy Norris Blanchette, Valley Cottage Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
