Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The bold illustrations feature an attractive little girl helping her mother cook a meal. In this case, the foods include sweet potato pie, collard greens, fried catfish, and red beans. It's a nice addition to collections that need board books featuring African Americans or for anyone interested in broadening children's view of society. The series consists of I Smell Honey, Pretty Brown Face, Shake Shake Shake, and Watch Me Dance.
Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Several African-American writers are bringing books to young babies. I Smell Honey shows a mother and child preparing dinner with a sensory vividness that lets you "hear catfish cracklin'" and "red beans bubblin'"
