Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS- A spirited African-American toddler makes his way through a busy day, fraught with messes and mischief. On each page, there is a peaceful, everyday tableau with a one- or two-word description-"Diaper," "Kitty cat," "Ice cream," etc. When the page is turned, the opposite side reveals the word, "uh-oh," and the illustration reflects the result of some mishap. The child has taken all the wipes out of the box, the cat has run up a tree, and the ice-cream cone has fallen to the ground. The final "uh-oh" comes when Grandpa reads the boy a bedtime story and ends up falling asleep himself. The very simple language, along with the repetition of the universal toddler distress signal, "uh-oh," will entice its target audience. However, one illustration is difficult to decipher as it's unclear whether the problem is that the child has thrown the toys out of the bathtub, or climbed out alone. Still, this is a fairly appealing addition to the "toddler-on-the-move" genre.-Rachael Vilmar, Eastern Shore Regional Library, Salisbury, MD

Kirkus Reviews
A young child's day is filled with that infamous phrase, "Uh-oh!" Right-hand pages show the child (gender neutral) going about daily routines and feature a noun, such as "diaper," "breakfast," "crayons" or "bedtime." A turn of the page reveals the "uh-oh" situation: In the sandbox, the sand goes flying, the clean clothes don't quite make it on to the correct body parts and the shared ice-cream cone ends up on the ground. The "uh-oh's" are a nice mix of accident, inexperience and mischievousness. Isadora's pastel illustrations are a delight, depicting an adorably dimpled African-American child with a wide range of expressions. Indeed, even when the child is being naughty, the sheer joy on his/her face makes it hard for even the sternest readers to keep from smiling, too. While perhaps not for the impressionable or those easily led astray, this could be a springboard to conversations about behavior, and the illustrations are not to be missed-nor is Isadora's Peekaboo Bedtime, also due out this month.

    A super Read-Aloud book for little ones to hear

    This little book is adorable and a great "read-Aloud" book for little ones to hear. My 10 month old granddaughter enjoyes hearing it and we now hear her uttering "Uh oh!" through-out the day. I highly recommend Ms. Isadora's book "Uh-oh!" to parents.
