Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In their picture book debut, editor and artist have created a poetry anthology that seems more appropriate as a basal reader than for sharing at home. These "Poems to Fill Your Day" are, according to the table of contents, organized in five categoriesWaking Up, On the Way to School, During the School Day, etc.but no section headings are found within the book itself. Overall, the substance and linguistic deftness are thin, despite upbeat verses from such worthies as Langston Hughes, Myra Cohn Livingston, Charlotte Zolotow and Mary Ann Hoberman. Repetitious and simplistic versese.g., Kalli Dakos's "You're writing,/ You're writing,/ I'm glad you've learned how./ You're writing/ You're writing,/ You're an author now"far outnumber more challenging poems. Doniger's bright collages, cut from colored papers and painted with watercolor and gouache, are energetic but not distinctive; and the book's extra-large typeface and layout seem specially designed for first graders, whose textbooks the volume greatly resembles. Ages 4-7. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Here is a sort of Child's Garden of Verses for the late 20th century. Starting with waking, continuing through the school day, and concluding with bath and bedtime, 29 poems are arranged chronologically to suit young children's daily activities. The verses are penned by various writers, both well known and less so; Taberski's students helped with the selection process. All of the poems are easy to read-there are no obscure, high-flown messages to challenge or confound readers. There is nothing particularly poignant or wildly hilarious, either. The illustrations are clean-edged, cut-paper collages in bright colors on white backgrounds. They are attractive, almost sanitized. This pleasant book could open the way for more provocative experiences in understanding poetry and the sociology of school.-Ruth K. MacDonald, Bay Path College, Longmeadow, MA
Kirkus Reviews
Morning, Noon, and Night ( April 1996; 32 pp.; 1-57255-128-3): Subtitled "Poems to Fill Your Day," Taberski and Doniger's first book divides the day into segments recognizable to children: "Waking Up," "On the Way to School," "During the School Day," "After School," and "Going to Bed." Familiar poems by Ogden Nash, Lilian Moore, Valerie Worth, Langston Hughes, and others have been slipped amiably into these sections. Doniger's cut-paper collages fairly whistle with cheerfulness, featuring children of different races and varying capabilities, from the wheelchair-bound to a tightrope walker. (Picture book/poetry. 4-7)
