Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tracy Defina
Who doesn't get excited for popcorn? Let's make it. Let's eat it. Earl y readers will love following the sequence of making popcorn in this fun book. With few words and bright, bold illustrations, they'll be reading in no time. Action-packed illustrations provide visual clues. Repetition of words increases the success of the early reader. Just wait to see what happens when you make too much popcorn!
School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-A simple rhyme and vibrant illustrations show what can happen when a group of children and their animal friends put too many kernels in the pot. The text, designed for beginning readers, is limited to a line or two per page and positioned under framed illustrations. The artwork, done predominately in pastel colors, depicts the chaos and confusion that ensues when the popping won't stop. Use this book with Jane Thayer's The Popcorn Dragon (Morrow, 1989) to enhance science or cooking lessons, or pair it with Tomie dePaola's The Popcorn Book (Holiday, 1978) to learn the history behind this tasty subject.-Kit Vaughan, J. B. Watkins Elementary School, Midlothian, VA
Kirkus Reviews
This entry in a series for very new readers has few words and clear rhymes: "Popcorn. Popcorn./Put it in a pot./Popcorn. Popcorn./Get the pot hot." In a Fauvist kitchen, a multicolored cast of characters—purple and blue dogs, a fuchsia cat, a boy and a girl (he's African-American; she's Latina) put those kernels in a big kettle. "Popcorn. Popcorn./Pop! Pop! Pop!/Popcorn. Popcorn./Stop! Stop! Stop!" The fluffy kernels spill out the door into the green and gold world, where other folk come to get their own bags full. "Popcorn. Popcorn./Get it while it's hot./We are happy./We like it a lot." Children who are just beginning to master the connection of word to object will adore this, and marvel that they can, indeed, read it. (Picture book. 5-9) .
