Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
Parents often tell their children, especially their babies, "I love you so much I could eat you up!" Harper and Chorao explore this theme with charming scenes of human and animal parents and children expressing their love. Beloved little ones are compared to their parents' favorite treats: honey for the bear, banana for the apes, lumps of sugar for the horses. The full-page illustrations are beautifully expressive and capture the essence of a warm parent-child relationship, in animals and humans alike. The animal faces are particularly enchanting and make the animals come alive. Details of the illustrations tell more of a tale than the spare words. The rhyming text feels a bit contrived at times, with the "eat you up" applied to "jug" (to rhyme with "hug") and "lump" (to rhyme with "plump"). Still, the text is lilting when read aloud and would be a calming naptime or bedtime story.
Kirkus Reviews
In this aptly titled tale, animal parents of all species murmur sweet endearments to their adored offspring. Harper relies upon clever, species-specific food analogies to describe the depth of the parent's adoration-a foal is a "sugar lump," while young elephant calf is a "crunchy peanut"-with each stanza ending with a human parent extolling his or her child's virtues. With a single verse dedicated to each two-page spread, the simple format is appropriate for the youngest reader. The subtle rhythms of Harper's gently rhyming text make this ideal for shared read-aloud times, either one-on-one or in a group format. Chorao's gouache-and-colored-pencil illustrations feature realistically detailed animals with added anthropomorphic touches-a bear cub wearing a bib or a young monkey adorned with a ribbon bow atop its head. The gentle execution of the drawings is in absolute harmony with the tale. Harper's whimsically themed tale offers up a hearty serving of a parent's love that is just right to share with little ones.
