Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2 In warm honey and gold tones, this picture book marks the end-of-day tiredness and comforting rituals of family life. An exhausted mom gets the girls their evening bath, and she's relieved when her daughters offer to tell the bedtime story. Mom falls asleep, and the girls help her undress and put on her pajamas, tuck her into bed, and give her a kiss. When dad comes home, he gets his daughers to bed and thanks them for taking such good care of mom. This book is extraordinarily good at conveying mutual affection, devotion, and the reliance of parents on their children. Many picture books show how parents nurture their offspring, but few show how children contribute affection and trust to family life. This book gives off a great sense of reality, ordinariness, and familial love in the manner of Vera B. Williams' work. The story is laid out in double pages, and this slows the telling and requires children to look attentively at the watercolor and pencil drawings. Books, laundry, flowers in a vase, and lunch pails are scattered in these rooms, and the details tell what kind of a family this is. Their intense dark hair and black eyes draw readers immediately to them, and the warm colors which surround them will reassure children of their deep affection for one another. The cover drawing is a striking, touching icon of love. The pages showing dad in overalls, his arm around the girls in protection, are no less moving. An original, deeply felt book that should touch the hearts of a wide audience. Anna Biagioni Hart, Sherwood Regional Library, Alexandria, Va.

Format: Paperback
Its role reversal in this work where two sisters get their exhausted mother into bed, telling her a bedtime story and undressing her. This story is adorable and children will love the girl's take-charge attitude. The colorful illustrations are superb, conveying a realistic and human quality. An amazing amount of detail went into the illustrations. The scenes of the various rooms in the house portray the way in which a house would look with two children and a very tired mommy. Books thrown around, shoes scattered about, clothes hanging out of a dresser drawer etc. This book would be an outstanding bedtime story.

Format: Paperback
My daughter, aged 2, just loved this book. It is the only book at the library that she demands again and again. Thus, I am buying it for her. (Overdue library fines are a drag.) This book has real, life-like characters: Mom has an occasional fat roll showing; Daddy works late; Mommy is exhausted. The kids in the book make the unselfish decision to put mom to bed and take care of themselves. This book is also the right word length to read little kids and the pictures are excellent.

My son loves this book. It ecame a favourite for a while, and is requested from time to time. It's a gentle story about two kids with very ordinary home life - nothing fancy, and 2 parents who are leading busy lives - Dad comes in with a lunch box, wearing overalls, looking tired himself, and lovingly tucks in his daughters after they tenderly tuck in their exhausted mum.
This is a lovely book to share, and with which to encourage the beginning reader.
