The drawings and the stories themselves are perfect!
BJ Best
The relationship between text and pictures is very good - the picture matches the text so that the reader can use it to help decode words.

I am getting this for nieces and nephews now, and will save a few copies for the I'm-hoping-for-someday grandchildren.

Sam Who Never Forgets By: Eve Rice
Sam is a zookeeper in charge of feeding the animals. Everyday at lunchtime Sam fills him wagon with food and sets off to care for the animals. Sam never forgets to feed the Giraffe, the Monkeys and all his other friends along the way. Sam's wagon is now empty but one animal is still hungry. Could it be that Sam has forgotten the elephant? How ironic, the elephant that never forgets remembers that she is still hungry. No worries, Sam never ever forgets he is on his way with a whole wagon full of hay just for elephant.
Sam Who Never Forgets is a great book for a younger crowd the pictures correspond well with the text, which gives children a clear picture. The art is plain and simple with bright colors. There is the appropriate amount of detail for young eyes; too much detail may pull their minds away from the story. The interpretation of the pictures is executed well. Rice shows a picture directly correlated with the text on the same page. Personification is another factor of Rice's book that will gain children's attention. According to Norton "..personification will help to introduce style to children..... personification is often reinforced through the illustrations." Rice shows the personified animals through both the text and the picture. The monkeys show their gratitude for their lunch by saying, "Splendid, Sam never forgets." Their thankfulness is further enforced by the smiles on their faces and bright eyes. The same theme is continued through the book until Sam seems to have forgotten the elephant. She is sad so she is drawn with a frown and droopy eyes. Showing animals with different expression helps children to understand body language. According to Caldecott terms for criteria, Rice's book meets all the qualifications.

When my son was a year old I began reading him this book. It soon became a very important part of our daily point-to-things-in-pictures and reading routine. By the time he was two, I could probably have recited it in my sleep. Good for dramatic reading and detail finding, counting animals, talking about feelings. He's 23 now, and has been an avid reader all his life. I credit books like this one for a very good beginning. He does still remember this book. I'm getting it again for a friend's baby.

My infant son (now ten) absolutely adored this book, I guess maybe at least partly because of the bright colors. He would stare and stare and get all excited and giggly. And later he liked the story too. Not much of a story from an adult perspective, but boy oh boy does the author have a line to the hearts of the very small. I treasure our beaten and slobbered on old copy of this book like his hospital ID bracelet.

Cute story that is great for beginning readers. Looks a bit dated, but the kids (5 and 3) love it.

This is a favorite of my grandson. He loves to say "Sam never forgets" when we read this. A simple story, with a happy ending.
