Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In these three-part rhymes about friendship, "Text and artwork share perkiness aplenty, but neither extends the value of the other," according to PW. Ages 3-8. (Jan.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Kroll's (I Wanted to Know All About God) text and cartoon animator Rosely's art share perkiness aplenty, but neither extends the value of the other. The three-part rhymes don't lead anywhere: the statement ``Wriggly friends/ Squiggly friends/ Laughing and giggly friends'' accompanies a random scene of a school hallway, for instance. The brightly hued gouaches of multiracial children come from the simplicity school of cartooning, where large round heads top undersize, boxy bodies. The style is larky but perhaps not suited to the task: the Asian American children end up with slits for eyes, the African Americans list toward the beige end of the colored space. A slight offering. Ages 3-5. (Oct.)
Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
With about eight words per double-page spread, this deceptively simple text celebrates differences and shows us that people of all ages, colors, sexes and even species can be good friends. The illustrations are also deceptively primitive.
