Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
While humans have a physical need for food, they have an emotional need for satisfaction of a different sort. The child in this story explores how food is a part of life but there is emotional hunger which needs to be fed. Food plays may roles during the day and eating fills physical needs to for the body to function. Special treats like ice cream or cake help to celebrate different occasions. No matter what the occasion and need, the child finds that emotions need satisfaction, too. The comfort and satisfaction derived from sharing with friends and family, including pets is food for the heart. The joy and laughter shared with friends adds to the birthday celebration. The cuddle and snuggle with the pet dog brings about a sense of comfort. At the end of the day, the good-night hugs and kisses from parents provide the warmth and security that leaves one feeling "just right." Brightly-colored illustrations catch the readers' attention. The importance of feeding the emotional needs is valuable, and the story may lend itself to discussion of feelings and self-esteem although the flow of time during the story is not fluid. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
Kirkus Reviews
If you're hungry for a good story, skip this saccharine and potentially confusing paean to the joys of satisfying our inner selves with love from family, friends and pets. The brief text contrasts times when a certain food fulfills a longing to other moments when a laugh, a cuddle or a goodnight kiss is just what the child narrator needs. Confusion may arise from the fact that the two "sometimes" mentioned by the narrator generally appear to be separated by only minutes. Another potential source of confusion is the fact that preschoolers, who tend to be concrete thinkers, may not make the connection between being satisfied by a hot dog and entertained by a big sister's antics. Simply drawn, round-headed, snub-nosed kids of indeterminate age populate the illustrations. In some cases, the red-headed narrator appears to be a preschooler, in others an elementary school-aged child. Adult characters are awkwardly drawn, though the pets (particularly the dog) have a genuine appeal. While the author's intentions are obvious and laudable, the end result is barely palatable.
