Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 2. Here's a rhyme book that will appeal to kids' fascination with containers. The concept, abetted by Glasser's madcap illustrations, is that the world abounds in nontraditional pockets. The rhymes follow four families, at home and on day trips to the farm and the zoo, with part of the fun seeing how the families cross paths. Pockets are everywhere: caves are pockets for bears; a lake is a pocket for a duck; giggles are pockets for a laugh; arms are pockets for hugs; ears are pockets for a whisper. The story's comings-and-goings are nicely anchored by the children's getting dressed in the morning and being tucked in at night. Glasser's pastels enliven the action throughout: kids run, dance, and jump; soup spills; the wind tosses hats; and bubbles leak out of a bathtub. Fast-moving and fun. Connie Fletcher

Your child (and you) will love it!

This clever rhyming book stretches the imagination to consider things like "a pocket for an ice cream is a cone",and gives kids a fun way to learn a love for poetry.

The rhythm of this delightful book has the most hypnotic affect on my 2 year old! Like Good Night Moon (only better illustrations) this book has that wonderful lulling-them-to-sleep feeling, leaving the child in that safe, loved place that helps them fall asleep easily afterwards. Now my daughter asks for this book every night, and I'm happy to read it to her. We've even got a made-up tune to go with it.

This clever rhyming book stretches the imagination to consider things like "a pocket for an ice cream is a cone",and gives kids a fun way to learn a love for poetry. My kids love this book and we donate it to their classrooms each year so that their classmates can enjoy it as well.

I checked this book out from the library and instantly fell in love with it. My son who was 2 1/2 at the time asked for it nightly; I had trouble returning it to the library even after renewing it twice! After checking it out 2 more times, I decided I should buy a copy to keep and am so glad I did. We return to it monthly. The loving, whimsical use of the "pocket" examples are priceless, and the author's rhyming and rhythmic abilities create a nice flow. The illustrations truly make the book one you will grow to love each time you share it with your child.

fun idea. just picked this up at the library today. the pictures are gorgeous. I like how the pictures show a story (the people in the different places meet up, separate, come back together) and the different things that are pockets. we just read it once but I'm sure we'll come back to it again and again. the only thing that was a little distracting was random sentences stuck in that don't go along with they rhyme. my son is 28 months and enjoyed it though.

Although this book is several years old, I just found it today and fell in love. As a literacy consultant, I always look for rhythmic, imaginative books and this one fits the bill. See how many "pockets" you and your child can find in your world that aren't named in the book! This book is especially appropriate for preschool children or children in K or 1st grade where a focus on and exposure to the rhythms and patterns of the language is extra important.
