Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
Can you recall when you were a child and eating watermelon meant being sticky from your neck all the way down to your toes? Then you can understand the children here who are sticky from everything imaginable. They are sticky from making a sandwich, from syrup at breakfast, even from playing in the sand. However, their stickiness does not keep them from playing in the park, having tea parties, or just listening to a story. They just share their stickiness with all those with whom they come in contact. These sticky children are joined by a dog and a menagerie of stuffed toys. The gentle rhyme offers the reader a rhythm as the children play through the day. Creative terms such as goopy-oopy-ooze and glicky reinforce the image of sticking to all kinds of things. The illustrations are of such rich, vibrant colors that the youngest children will be drawn to this title just for the pictures. This is a prime gift book that gives adults the opportunity to reminisce about the days of just having fun. This is a recommended title for early elementary collections.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-From breakfast to bedtime, readers follow a pair of siblings through their day of jam, syrup, mud, paste, and mashed potatoes (and the yucky effects they have on cats, dogs, teddy bears, pants, etc.). The chanting rhymes celebrate all this stickiness: "Sticky people love to play with/Furry teddy bears./Fuzzy, wuzzy, sticky also./No one sticky cares." However, the delicate watercolor illustrations downplay the glorious mess. The book winds down with Dad washing the goo away with a bath. The parents put their clean children to bed, but the last page shows the day's sticky remnants and promises an equally messy tomorrow. An additional purchase.-Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Johnston's latest is an illustrated rhyme celebrating the sticky wonder that is childhood. Two young siblings, briefly joined by another friend, spend the day in delightful pursuits, including eating (jelly, syrup and ice cream being the culprits), playground play, having pretend tea parties, hiding and seeking, mud-pie making and crafting cards for grandma. Sandwiched in between is a story on Mom's lap and a nap. Young listeners will have no trouble recognizing some aspects of their day in this gentle tale of children who are loved no matter how sticky or dirty they become. Moore's illustrations add to this feeling of familiarity; the characters are having so much fun readers will want to join right in. Number agreement issues plague the rhymes, as when the two children take a bath with their dad: "Sticky people, sticky people / Take a bubbly bath. / 'Look who's underneath that gunk!' their / Scrubbing fathers laugh." Still, this is certain to find a willing audience among those children who just can't seem to stay clean. (Picture book. 3-6)
