What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Impressive collages . . . A joyful celebration of family and food." Booklist, ALA

"Falwell has captured the warmth and love of an African-American family. . . . The brightly colored collage illustrations depict the bouncing energy of the children and their attentive mother in a creative counting book that will delight young readers." Horn Book

"The successful rhyme scheme builds a natural rhythm that helps the simple text read smoothly. Collage illustrations combine colored paper, patterned fabrics, and felt in a clear, uncluttered design. . . . The figures are animated and expressive . . . an appealing glance at a typical extended family." School Library Journal
