Bursting with the boisterous business of family life, this volume from the Anholts is ""big"" on activity. Poems and captions take a backseat to spread after spread of family members shopping, chasing, tugging, napping, working, playing, fighting, feeding. The best descriptions are the ones that make poetic leaps, e.g., this exultation of a clothesline: ""Skirts and shirts and dressing gowns--/The wind begins to blow--/They're like a family upside down,/Dancing in a row!"" Another page lists verbs such as ""bathe,"" ""chatter,"" ""hurry,"" and ""play,"" accompanied by fetching little drawings that place the verbs in a familial context. A celebration for families of all sizes and configurations.
