Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Originally published in 1964, this charming picture book tells the story of the Good Humor man as he makes his daily rounds selling ice cream. Children and parents run out to the street when they see the Good Humor man's white truck driving into the neighborhood. All the neighborhood, including the dogs, line up to see what treats the Good Humor man has for them that day, and then he drives back to the peppermint gates of Fun Valley where ice cream is made and all the little white trucks live. There is not much in terms of plot in this picture book, but the Good Humor Man does manage to help Johnny Slow-Poke reunite with his lost puppy and help lonely Dick Griggs find a friend to play with. The illustrations will charm young readers and older readers alike with their gentle depictions of a suburban neighborhood in the early 60s—fathers dressed in sweater vest and pipe or mowing their lawn with their push mower, mothers wrapped in aprons and handkerchiefs around their hair. 2005 (orig. 1964), Random House, Ages 3 to 6.

This is one of the most endearing of all Golden Books and will not only entertain children but bring back fond memories for adults as well. Let's hope that we can all enjoy the simple and honest pleasures of a treat from the Good Humor Man on a hot summer day.
