—School Library Journal (starred review)
Riddell's fluid watercolor-and-pencil illustrations bring a grace to each poem, no matter what its subject, and he depicts many ethnicities of children...Despite (or perhaps because of) the odd bits, this book successfully celebrates the private, gleeful, imaginative world of toddlers.
Nonsense words and jaunty rhymes pack the oversize pages of this beautifully illustrated collection of poems...Preschoolers probably won’t sit still for the entire collection at once, but individual selections are likely to get them moving to the lively beat.
As for A Great Big Cuddle, don’t be surprised if your copy of the book becomes the most tattered collection of poetry in your home. That’s okay. The most loved become the most well-worn.
The oversized volume is beautifully designed and laid out, and at his best Rosen writes with echoes of great childhood poets such as Milne (as in the domestic simplicity of “Coming Home”) and Lear (in the nonsensical joys of “Once”).
