Teddy's TV Troubles

by Joanne Cantor

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Upset by something he saw on television, Teddy turns to his mother for assistance in allaying his fears. The two of them draw a picture of the problem, cross it out, and hide it in a book. They also create some happier pictures and play with blocks. Then his mother tells him in tedious detail about how she did exactly the same things with Grandma when she was small. The day ends with a story about a bear who is scared-an odd choice for bedtime-and a good-night kiss. Then, in an addendum for parents in case they haven't got it yet, the author explains that children need to be reassured and comforted after being frightened. Cantor's earnest attempt at helping preschoolers deal with childhood fears lacks literary merit. Instead, it is a painfully simple parenting handbook, rather reminiscent of a public-health information pamphlet. Lowes's unimaginative and uninspiring artwork complements this effort perfectly.-Jane Barrer, Washington Square Village Creative Steps, New York City Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
