Editorial Reviews

Review

Barrett’s verse scans with a pleasingly jaunty rhythm. Pham’s stylized cartoons are done in a muted color palette; eye-catching patterns on the clothing and in the backgrounds infuse the scenes with a lively energy. The last two double-page spreads skillfully bring the energy down as a pair of brown-skinned siblings pat Mommy, Dad and each other before patting a pillow and teddy at bedtime. ... [Y]oungsters will recognize the exuberance represented here as their own.

We were given Pat-a-cake along with All Fall Down when they first came out and my 10m old daughter LOVES both books! Not only are the images wonderful (and multi racial), and the rhymes enjoyable, this book also allows interaction. We read through each page patting the pictures. I can only imagine that as she gets older it'll become even more fun! We leave them on the floor with her toys and on several occasions she's crawled over to the book and started patting different pages on her own. I've already given the two books as a bundle at baby showers twice and I plan to continue to give them at many more.

Format: Board book
This board book encourages the toddler to get involved with the reading by touching or giving a pat to the objects shown on each page. Whether it is a leaf, pickle, caterpillar, teddy or mommy or dad, the child is urged to make contact with a pat of the hand. The book is sturdy enough to withstand numerous pats so let your little one pat away.

I also liked the fact that the children and adults pictured here were multi-racial. This is definitely a nice touch. For an older child this book would be an easy beginning reader if the child is ready to try tackling the reading chores with minimal help from mom or dad.

Met my expectations. Read to my great grandson and he seemed to enjoy it. Hope to continue to read it.

Format: Board book
I've had this book along with "All Fall Down," also by Mary Brigid Barrett, for about a week now, and my 17-month-old absolutely loves them both -- she's been requesting them nonstop since we got them. Pat-a-Cake is a really cute take on the old nursery rhyme that asks, if you can pat a cake, what about all sorts of other things, like a pickle or a tomato? The silly, sing-song rhymes are a lot of fun, and my daughter loves the bright, cheerful illustrations. Highly recommended!
