KIRKUS REVIEW

This entry in the Harper Growing Tree series has a text modeled on “There was a little turtle,” and several other hand rhymes. It’s a lap-sized alternative to board books and features three animals and a child gleefully being chased, hiding from their pursuers, and then being caught up—in the child’s case—for a parental hug. A brief line or two of text undulates across each simple painting of happy, bounding figures, all eyes and smiles; the sturdy paper stock will survive rough handling during the repeated reading most children will demand. You can almost hear the giggles. (Picture book. 2-3)
