Editorial Reviews

News Tribune (Tacoma)
Katayama draws childhood in warm, bright hues. The way we think it is supposed to be remembered. The way we want our own children to remember their time of innocence.
Parents and Kids
A fun book with a serious message for kids... a book to read over and over... It's a must-have.
The Children's Bookwatch
An ideal addition to child counselor, family, school and community library collections. Very highly recommended for all little readers--and parents hoping to instill responsibility in their children's character and conduct.
The Journal (North Seattle)
Colorful drawings depicting characters within the story help connect kids to the text and lure them into the tale.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-This rhyming picture book offers positive activities that youngsters can use to get attention. The suggestions range from asking, "Can I help?" to doing some things all by themselves or inviting a parent to play. "Offer to share-even give Sister half./Make silly faces so Baby will laugh." Katayama's ink-and-watercolor, cartoonlike children with tiny elliptical dots for eyes tend to be a bit cloying, but the pictures convey a sense of harmony in the home. An additional purchase with limited child appeal.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
