Editorial Reviews

Bulletin of the Center for Cbildren's Books
. . . toddlers. . . and their adults are bound to find something here for everyone.
Publishers Weekly
Calmenson (Dinner at the Panda Palace) here offers 24 rhymes celebrating the milestones of toddlerhood from early mastery of letters, opposites and body parts to the dawning of decorum ("Do animals have good manners?/ No, I don't think they do./ But you can have good manners./ Will you try? Good for you!") to bath time and bedtime. There's even an ode to potty proficiency: "I have my own potty./ I use it very well./ When I need the potty,/ I can almost always tell." Sweet's (Bouncing Time) full-bleed paintings of intimate domestic scenes and safe outdoor settings add to the fun. Calmenson makes a game of peekaboo into an opportunity to teach colors, "Peekaboo! I see blue!/ Blue ball, blue floor./ Blue cat at the door," and the artist takes her literally: her Matisse-like rendering of a slightly off-kilter room shows the ball in the foreground eyed by a blue tabby. The author poses a series of riddles about the parts of a playground and, while all the answers are pictured in the spread, Sweet places the swing, sandbox and slide across the gutter from their clues. The confident, multicultural toddlers featured here take on their world with bright eyes and calm smiles, while background washes of soft lime, cantaloupe and peach emanate a convivial glow. Calmenson and Sweet open the door to the world of poetry and the playfulness of language, and usher toddlers through it. Ages 1-4. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
These simple, original rhymes are perfect for toddlers. They can play peek-a-boo with colors, identify body parts, learn animal sounds, count with blocks, have a letter parade and much more. The bright watercolor paintings will hold the attention of the youngest readers, but they will probably have the most fun doing the actions in the book. Boys and girls from a variety of ethnic groups are represented, and both genders are pictured doing a variety of activities. This is a comprehensive collection of 24 rhymes so adults can read one or two sections at a time to the younger children. The only drawback is the book is rather large and heavy and the pages not sturdy enough for one and two year olds to "read" on their own. Even so, this is a great resource for parents and for teachers to use in a toddler classroom. 2001, HarperCollins, $16.95. Ages 1 to 4. Reviewer: Cheryl Peterson
School Library Journal
PreS-This collection includes verses about colors, riddles about the playground, poems about manners, and bits on other topics of concern to toddlers. Sweet's vibrant illustrations with bright backgrounds pick up where the rhymes leave off, giving the audience a nice view of the diverse world of children. A whimsical spread called "Traffic Jam" shows youngsters driving little cars as the verse begins "My car broke down/So here I am./I just started/A traffic jam!" "First Things" documents memorable firsts such as a haircut, an injury, and a friend. This winning collection can be used in storytimes or just for pleasurable times between parents and children.-Bina Williams, Bridgeport Public Library, CT Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
