Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS. Children will delight in this simple exploration of a pleasant day as seen through the eyes of a preschooler and her baby brother. The sequential progression from waking up in the morning, going to the park as a family, and saying good night with a loving kiss provides the affirmation of routine that toddlers thrive on. As the siblings encounter common objects during the course of the day, the author describes their function ("A mirror is for making faces") and the illustrator playfully depicts the children's actions in breezy, colorful watercolors (Mom applies lipstick in the mirror as the youngsters stick out their tongues). After the first reading or two by their caregivers, toddlers will eagerly turn the pages to "read" their favorite sections aloud.?Amelia Kalin, Valley Cottage Library, NY

From Booklist

Ages 1-4. "Boxes are to see what's in them. A purse is to empty. A cat is to love." Small children (and their caregivers) will recognize the definitions in this exuberant, playful picture book about how a girl and her baby brother view everyday things. Lots of joyful, active line-and-watercolor pictures show the family from early morning and through the day until bedtime. On a walk, "A tree is to hide behind. A see-saw is for feeling funny in the tummy." When they eat, "Jell-O is for wobbling. Milk is to give some to the cat." In the style of Margaret Wild and Julie Vivas' Our Granny (1994) and Shirley Hughes' Alfie and Rosie books, there's a physicalness in these words and pictures that evokes the toddler's world in all its tumbling, laughter, hugs, and messy comfort.

My son always wants to read "tickie toes". That's his pet name for this lovely book. It is short enough to keep his attention and for him to have memorized each page so he can "read" along. He fell in love with this book when I gave it to him for his second birthday. He is three now and still chooses it to read. The illustrations are wonderful as well. I feel that any child would enjoy this book.

This is my daughter's very favorite book. We read it every single day. She loves pointing to things she knows on the pages, loves pretending to smell the flowers, and loves it when I blow wind in her face. I love that at the end she kisses Mommy just like in the book. That alone makes it worth reading as often as she wants.

I babysit a one, three, and four year old and all of them love this book. Theres not to many big words so its a great book to have a kid read by themselves. The pictures are great and the rythm of the story is wonderful too. After reading it so many times I sing along with it. Its a great book i recommend it to everyone.

My little boy loves the pictures in this book! The concepts are simple and uplifting. My wife and I wish there were more children's books like this one.

By A Customer on July 3, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This is a very sweet book with lovely illustrations of a toddler's daily life. "Bread is for more jam please; an egg is to dip," etc. My 2-year-old memorized this story after the third reading. It's a new favorite in our house. It reads like an homage to the classic book "A Hole Is to Dig" illustrated by Maurice Sendak --which is also a must for every child's library.
