Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The Bacharach/David 1967 pop hit "I Say a Little Prayer for You" takes on an odd new guise in this picture book. Here a woman of color is expressing her love for her daughter as the two celebrate the girl's birthday. The lines "The moment I wake up, Before I put on my makeup... I say a little prayer for you" are accompanied by an illustration of Mom waking her daughter in a bedroom bedecked with a "Happy Birthday" banner. The day continues to unfold, depicting Mom at work and the child at school until they meet for a party in the park. The sentiments "Together, together, that's how it must be. To live without you would only mean heartbreak for me" seem overly intense in this new context, especially given that these lines form a refrain, and the line "Answer my prayer" becomes undecipherable when directed to the daughter. British artist Littlewood's busy watercolor palette provides energy and excitement but may prove overstimulating to some children by book's end. Ages 2-up. (Apr.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-The 1967 song has been transformed into an exuberant picture book in which a beaming black mother cherishes her young daughter. Sweeping, swirling, softly realistic watercolors in glowing shades are effectively arranged on double pages, full pages, and a variety of smaller shapes and sizes. They show the little girl awakening on her birthday, choosing a bright red dress to wear, walking to school with her mother, having a party in the park with her friends, and being tucked into bed at the end of a beautiful day. No father is present. Although not written specifically for a parent-child relationship, the lyrics adapt well as an expression of maternal feeling, stressing that the child will be loved forever. Suitable for reading aloud, the words are simple and rhythmic. The praying (nondenominational) and loving aspects are repeated for emphasis, while the sunny, joyful mood of the illustrations expands their meaning. Too bad that the score is not included.-Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
