Reviews

It s a distinctive combination: warm and fuzzy verse accompanied by primitive, provocative images.

The artwork was made, in part, by inking interestingly textured objects and then pressing paper onto them, a technique children will want to try for themselves.

The art was made using a technique called collagraphy. The textures produced are deep and immersive yet immediate, drawing the reader into the rich visual world of the book.

This expressive, delicate and intimate series of portraits of mothers and babies creates a chain of images of love that envelopes and nurtures young readers age two and up.

Textured black-ink prints with spots of color on creamy, thick paper add to the richness of the experiences portrayed in this collection of 11 poems . . . The bold, relief-print illustrations with bright patches of color bolster the offbeat, playful atmosphere. -- Jeanne McDermott, Booklist
