  • Publishers Weekly Reviews : PW Reviews 1996 April #2
    Dyer (Talking Like the Rain; The Girl in the Golden Bower) surpasses her considerable achievements in other poetry collections with a volume that not only lives up to the "delectable" of the subtitle but has the power to entice youngest children to cherish the richness and diversity of both language and art. In each of seven categories-Playtime; Animals, Animals; Lullaby and Good Night; etc.-Dyer includes the best work of both traditional and contemporary poets together with pellucid watercolors that simply dazzle. She gives a faintly old-fashioned look to the faces of her multicultural cast; coupled with her bold and sophisticated designs, the images have a welcome air of timelessness and help create a view of a global community of children. Regardless of the complexity of the perspective or metaphors, Dyer grounds each illustration with details that indicate her unerring understanding of the sensibilities and interests of youngest children. This sumptuous book comes with an attached satin ribbon that will mark not only pages turned but the book's remarkable pleasures. Ages 1-5. (Apr.) Copyright 1996 Cahners Business Information.

    PreS Nursery rhymes, poems, and lullabies are arranged by subject and attractively laid out on large pages. ABC and counting rhymes and some dealing with shapes and colors, food, animals, the seasons, and playtime are all included. Many can be found in classic Mother Goose collections; others are by contemporary poets such as William Carlos Williams, Eve Merriam, Nancy Willard, Clyde Watson, and Jane Yolen. Whimsical illustrations in soft watercolors have lots of appeal for the very young. Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY Copyright 1998 School Library Journal Reviews
