Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool--While Lester's soft-edged pastel illustrations sometimes have a whimsical (and often naughty) quality when depicting children at play, they are not strong enough to save the series' bland texts. "Baby is happy,/ Baby is sad,/Baby is good,/ Baby is bad" is just a sample of the inane verse found in these four toddler titles. All of the illustrations are double-page spreads done in muted colors; each spread is bordered by very small drawings that relate back to the main picture, but most of the objects in these petite drawings are too small for or will be unfamiliar to toddlers. This series represents the kind of books that adults often pick up and say, "How sweet," and then find themselves searching for a less boring alternative.

Format: Board book
A simple little card book suitable for younger readers.
The charm of this book is in its illustrations. They capture the joys of childhood. Everybody is smiling. It shows children exploring their world.
We have fun in the garden helping Dad. We go walking through the forest up on Mum's shoulders. We ride on ponies and ride down the sidewalk in our soapbox racer.
"Bumping and Bouncing" is a great introduction to Alison Lester's work that reaches it's most sophisticated in titles like "My Farm" and "Imagine".
