Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cherie Ilg Haas
It takes a group effort by an entire family playfully tickling a baby to rouse her so that she is completely awake and ready to start the day. Even the cat and dog take turns making the baby giggle more and more on this fun morning. The story begins with the baby receiving one tickle from her Mommy. On each page, the tickles are increased until she receives ten tickles. Images of smiling faces delightfully grace the story with tenderness. The book's layout incorporates a fun design, and patterns such as swirls, polka dots, and checks found throughout. A daisy pattern also appears; each number on each page is accompanied by that number of daisies, which provides a solid visual to aid readers who are counting along. The color scheme is friendly with greens, purples, oranges, and other bright complementary colors dominating the pages. Nothing is lost in the transition to board book. In its original picture book format, this story was selected by the National Association of Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) as an honor book for infants and toddlers. Reviewer: Cherie Ilg Haas

PreS-This simple book, which is similar to the author's Counting Kisses (S & S, 2001), introduces the parts of the body. Mother begins the day by giving her baby "one little tickle on a lovely, sleepy head." As the morning progresses, the child is fed, bathed, diapered, and dressed for an outing. Each activity is accompanied by the gentle touch of her parents, siblings, and grandmother, who take turns tickling her hands, chin, arms, and tummy. In clear pastel and primary colors, the collage, gouache, and colored-pencil illustrations depict loving family members with round faces, happy smiles, and rosy cheeks. Usually the text is placed on the left with the picture on the right, but there are a few double-page paintings. Large numerals appear alongside the words, accompanied by an appropriate number of daisies, which are the only items that coincide with the counting theme. Children will be drawn to the cheerful, sunny artwork and the anticipation of being tickled all the way to the end.-Maryann H.
