Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Williams uses vibrant colors and hand-painted rainbow letters to tell story-poems about three children: Little Guy, Little Pumpkin, and Little Bird. In each story, the child is chased and caught by a loving parent or grandparent, and readers can practically hear the squeals of delight as the children clamor for "more, more, more!" Many grownups have played similar games of love with their children, and the whole book feels like one giant hug.
Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Gouache paintings illustrate the love between three children, Little Guy, Little Pumpkin and Little Bird, and the adults in their lives. Little Guy's daddy catches him up to swing him around and kiss his tummy - which makes him cry "more, more, more." Little Pumpkin's grandma loves his toes, and Little Bird's mama loves her sleepy little eyes. A visual celebration of family ties. Caldecott Honor Book.
School Library Journal
The spontaneity and delight of play is captured perfectly in this trio of multigenerational, multiracial ``love stories'' about three pairs of babies and their grown-ups. Told in a natural, colloquial tone, the simple, engaging text is finely honed with a rhythm that is musical. The style is as buoyant and infectious as the actions described: ``Little Guy's daddy has to run like anything just to catch that baby up.'' Williams carries the same basic framework and language through each story, generating the repetition that is so satisfying to very young listeners, while the stories and characters maintain their own distinctions. Just as she celebrates universality within the text, Williams presents diversity with characteristic flair within her illustrations. Little Guy and his father are white, Little Pumpkin is African-American and her grandmother is white, and Little Bird and her mother are both Asian-American. Natural and unforced, Williams' choices are an accurate reflection of American society, but are noteworthy in their representation in books for this age group. Uncluttered, yet filled with movement, the splashy, vibrant paintings in gouache feature vigorous portraits and large, clearly defined objects set against a textured expanse of sweeping brushstrokes. The text appears in rainbow-hued letters within the illustrations, adding to the appealing design. Although it is a fine vehicle for toddler storytimes, the real strength of this book lies in the intimacy achieved when it is shared one-on-one between babies and adults or older siblings. A joyous expression of verbal and physical affection, these are truly love stories for our times. More, more, more . . . --Starr LaTronica, North Berkeley Lib . , CA

    Cute board book for small children

    This delightful picture book is about three babies named Little Guy, Little Pumpkin, and Little Bird. The adults who love them do things to them that make them say more, more, more. This book¿s illustrations show the actions of the story perfectly. A young child would be able look at the pictures and follow along with the story as it is read to them. Be ready to here them say, ¿More, More, More!¿

    More More More stories like this one

    This is a short book for prechoolers. It depicts three babies, Little Guy, Little Pumpkin, and Little Bird. These three babies are depicted playing with a father (Little Guy), a grandmother (Little Pumpkin), ad a mother (Little Bird). I is a simple story of the love between family. The second child, Little Pumpkin, is African-American but his grandmother is not. I applaud the author for including the existene of interracial families. The pages are filled with bright colors, which hold the child's attention.

    I love this book!

    We borrowed this book from the library and my almost 2 year old loves it. We are buying our own copy. The pictures are wonderful and the text is repetitive in every story. My daughter loves to read this story for nap/bed time because the last story is about a little girl who is asleep. I like the way that this book is fun and exciting, yet ends in a relaxing tone. This is a great book for 2 year olds!!

    One of our favorites

    My daughter is biracial and very close with her caucasian grandmother, so this book perfectly depicted their relationship. It was one of our favorite books when she was little (she's now 10).

    The book was...

    This book is a story of three young child. Two of which have parents, who look similar to them. One child, 'Little Pumpkin', does not. His grandparent- not even parent- is that of a different race. I see nothing wrong with combining different races but it should be done throught out the book. I, in being a African- American, find this book is degrading because it apears in the minds of childs that African- American kids are raise by the grandparents. This book should show equality or inequality through the entire book not just when there is an african-american child involved.
