Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K-From early morning to bedtime, a boy whirls through his day's activities, taking care of his stuffed blue doll. He feeds it breakfast, takes it for a walk, and takes it to the playground. The boy then does the grocery shopping, prepares lunch, and shares a storybook. The round of activities continues until bedtime when it is Time for stories. Time to dream. Milgrim's digital oil-paint illustrations have muted, pleasant shades with the figures crisply outlined in black. They work well with the minimal text, in which not a word is wasted. There is time for everything in this joyful, imaginative picture book.-Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH

Format: Hardcover
My 28-month-old daughter, who has sensory issues and a language delay, LOVES this book! There aren't many books that will hold her attention, but this one does. The illustration is perfect; eye-catching, bold, and not too detailed like the ones in most other books. Other illustrators will lose her with all the visual noise, but the boy and his doll remain the main focus of this book.

Even books at her age level can be quite wordy, and so I'm so used to having to skip over some non-essential wording when I sense she is losing interest. However, the wording you will find here is so short and sweet that your little one won't get the chance to become bored. It teaches basic events that occur throughout the day ("time to eat," "time to play," etc.) and it rhymes, so it flows very well. We have many books at home, and this is her favorite thus far.

David Milgrim seems to be the only author I've found who delivers everything that parents want and toddlers are attracted to -- all in one book. He rocks!

Format: Hardcover
My 24-month old loves this book. He has a sister on the way, and we've been showing him how to be nice to his dolly...the boy in this book is very sweet to his little doll, and it's a great example for him to see.

The boy takes his doll for a walk, gives her a swimming lesson, puts her down the slide, reads her a book, shows her a little snail, chats with friends while she naps...it's adorable. The text is pretty minimal, but that's okay because the pictures have a lot to talk about. On most pages we stop to talk about how dolls (and sisters) are fun, or what a good big brother he's being, or "wow, he's going to be a good Daddy someday!" We talk about how the little boy is gentle, and imaginative, and very nice to his dolly.

It's a sweet, gently funny book, and my son gets a lot out of it. He asks for it again and again. I'm glad to see a book that helps cultivate such wonderful characteristics (gentleness, playfulness, nurturing, and imagination) in boys.

David Milgrim, Time to Get Up, Time to Go (Clarion Books, 2006)

I have to admit, I didn't think Time to Get Up, Time to Go was going to be a big hit at Goat Central upon first read, but Milgrim (Amelia Makes a Movie) has created one of the bean's new favorite books here. The rhythm is simple and strong, the illustrations are precious, and parents will enjoy the toddler's imitation of his own upbringing with his favorite doll. Absolutely lovely, and a current bedtime favorite. *** ½
