Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–3—The creators of Take Me Out of the Bathtub (S & S, 2001) have built on their success in this silly book of songs that offers veiled criticism of today's hectic lifestyles. Fourteen new rhymes written to familiar tunes such as "Happy Birthday" and "The Farmer in the Dell" address the busy lives of parents and children. From "They're Always on the Cell" to "They're Full of Beans," the songs point out bad habits of parents and the sneaky tricks kids might try to play on them. Topics include wanting a pet, allowances, bad report cards, bedtime, overscheduled kids, Dad's driving, and confusing clichés. The appeal of this title is for those older children who understand jokes about extremes. Bright watercolors, colored pencil, and ink cartoons illustrate the spreads. No music beyond a suggested title is included.—Erlene Bishop Killeen, Stroughton Area School District, WI
