Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
"Hey little baby, look at me! I can read a book. I can count to three." What could be better than watching an excited three year old begin the day by proudly rattling off all the wonderful things that she can do and then as the day draws to an end offer to teach each skill to her little brother? Nola Buck has written a charming rhyming book perfect for reading aloud and showcasing all of the abilities and blossoming independence of a bubbly young child. Alley's delightful illustrations capture the energy and excitement of the author's charismatic characters. Part of the "Harper Growing Tree" series.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-A rambunctious little girl tells her baby brother all of the things she can do, from dressing herself and skipping to coloring and helping Mommy bake. She concludes her catalog of accomplishments with the promise, "And when you get bigger,/do you know what I'll do?/I'll teach every one/of these things to you." Told in simple bouncy rhyme that reflects a preschooler's energy level, this story is a lighthearted if undistinguished romp. Humorous line-and-wash cartoons depict the spirited sister; the sometimes-entertained, sometimes-confused, sometimes-horrified baby brother; and an often frazzled mom who watches it all. While this is not a necessary purchase, it will be a useful addition where there is demand for new baby or sibling stories.-Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, WI
Kirkus Reviews
In facile rhyme, a preschooler lists all the things she can do: "I can dress myself in my very own clothes. I can brush my teeth. I can blow my nose." These boasts are addressed to her baby brother as her mother goes through the day caring for them both. The girl shown is wildly active, and her poses recall those of the haughty Eloise of Plaza Hotel fame as she upturns food and batter on the kitchen floor, frolics in the house, goes down a slide head-first, and splashes in the tub, disturbing her mother, who has the baby in her arms. The preschooler generously explains to the baby, "And when you get bigger, do you know what I'll do? I'll teach every one of these things to you." The illustrations, executed with a fine, loose drawing style, portray a chaotic but normal, believable household with modern, identifiable objects and scenarios. (Picture book. 3-5) .
