Email this review


 In spritely verse and lively pen-and-watercolor illustrations, an exuberant survey of kids' diversity: ``Slow kids, quick kids, healthy kids, sick kids/Smooth kids, hairy kids, cute kids, scary kids.'' The contents of a typical pocket; a count-down of kids hiding (``...six in a box,/Five behind curtains, four behind clocks...''); what nasty kids are like (``They tell you lies, they spoil your games''), and nice ones (``They make you laugh, they hold your hand'')--with the same tots pictured for both; things kids make and do; fears, secrets, dreams, and wishes: an imaginative compilation with a dozen characters to follow from scene to scene and dozens of entertaining details to discover. (Picture book. 3-7)
