Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2Jason, a young African-American boy, decides to spend his allowance on a present for his mother's birthday. He buys her a bag of jelly bears, but eats them all on the way home. He then purchases a blue balloon with his remaining change, but it gets loose. All ends well when the disheartened child explains to his mother why he is crying. She tells him that all she really wants for her birthday is a hug from him. Thomas weaves a lovely story about a relationship between a mother and her son. White's realistic acrylic paintings depict Jason, his friends, and his day in rich, deep tones of browns, yellows, and reds. A suitable variation on a familiar theme.Carol Jones Collins, Montclair Kimberley Academy, NJ
Kirkus Reviews
The well-worn theme of finding the right birthday gift for one's mother is revisited in Thomas's first book.

Jason is eager to spend his dollar. When he realizes it's his mother's birthday, he sets out with high hopes of finding just the right gift. The dollar won't pay for a new dress, a bag of jelly bears ends up in Jason's tummy, and a blue balloon—bought with his last quarter—gets away. His mother warmly reassures him that he's got the gift she wants most—a hug. From a child's vantage point, Jason's dilemma is real, but there's not enough drama to make it compelling. While the message is laudable, it lacks originality. Acrylic paintings in bold colors make strong use of light and shadow, but the focus on faces highlights the fact that many of the characters are wearing the same blank smile. Wholesome yet predictable.
