Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Belgian author/illustrator Liesbet Slegers offers four titles to quell childhood fears. The paper-over-board books star a forthright fellow depicted in thick black line and pleasingly smudgy brushstrokes of rainbow colors. "I'm Kevin. I'm on my way. I have my suitcase and my grandma," he announces as he boards an airplane in Kevin Takes a Trip. When he gets scared, his grandmother comforts him. Kevin Goes to School; Kevin Goes to the Hospital; and Kevin Spends the Night address other universal anxieties.
Children's Literature
Preschooler Kevin and his grandma are taking a trip on an airplane. Kevin's initial excitement turns to tears upon takeoff. His stuffed bear soon reassures him, though, and the variety of things to do and people to meet while airborne make for a pleasant trip. Toddlers will enjoy the kid-centric journey; important details such as how Kevin goes to the potty en route are not overlooked. Roly-poly Kevin is the center of most of the illustrations, while grownups are seen only from the knees down. Adults may wonder how the equally roly-poly plane gets off the ground, and they may quibble with the heavily-laden food cart, given the current state of the travel industry. Jolly, brightly colored paintings on sturdy tagboard pages and exuberant text translated from the Belgian make this a good choice to pack in a youngster's carry-on for that first airplane ride. 2002, Kane/Miller,

School Library Journal
PreS-A toddler tackles a new experience in each of these titles. The stories are told in simple sentences and toddler-friendly language. All of them begin in a similar fashion, as in Trip: "I'm Kevin. I'm on my way. I have my suitcase and my grandma." He recounts selected details of each situation and describes typical negative and positive emotions associated with each new experience. In School, he explains that: "Mom is talking to a lady. She's my new teacher./No Mom, wait! Don't go yet!" Later he meets Ali, "my new friend. We drink our milk together." The books have sturdy pages and are just the right size for little hands. The brightly colored gouache artwork has a childlike quality and depicts a preschooler's-eye view of the world (adults are always shown from the chest down). In addition, Kevin's emotions are clearly expressed, so that youngsters will easily relate to him. Not essential purchases, but useful, engaging books that parents and children will enjoy.-Melinda Piehler, North Tonawanda Public Library, NY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
