KIDS by Catherine & Laurence Anholt Anholt


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.
