Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michele Tremaine
Sometimes it is easy to forget that pictures can make or break a picture book. John Butler's illustrations in this book draw the reader in with such delicious pastel softness, they overcome the otherwise unimpressive quality of the rhyming text. Who can resist baby animals that look like plush stuffed toys, their big black eyes glowing moistly in the soft light of a forest dawn? A bear cub, a pair of baby squirrels, bunnies, fledgling chickadees, and fuzzy little mice, all wake up and make their way to a clearing to welcome a suitably doe-eyed, newborn fawn. It is a story with a plot so simple it holds few surprises for even the youngest child, told in a repetitive, sing-song, verse that does not quite rhyme. What redeems this book from mediocrity is the dreamlike illustration, with a charm factor that will win over even the most jaded of readers.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-A cuddly brown cub and his friends wake from peaceful sleep with the urgent command to hurry for a party. "Wake up, wake up, sleepy rabbits!/Time to rise, time to shine,/Hurry up, it's party time!" They gather roots, seeds, nuts, and berries and join the parade of animals quietly creeping along the forest. They reach a clearing, where a mother deer rests. Nearby is her newborn fawn. "Wake up, wake up, sleepy fawn!/Time to rise, time to shine,/Time to start your living-time!" The animals all welcome the newest addition and present their gifts as the fawn rises to join the celebration. The soft, pale-hued, lifelike illustrations will be a big hit with toddlers and preschoolers. Perfect for groups as well as for one-on-one sharing.-DeAnn Okamura, San Mateo County Library, CA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
