KIRKUS REVIEW

Two busy children use their imaginations to become firefighters, EMTs, police officers, and more, but they still take time to give their mother the affection she desires. When couch cushions become ground control for a space shuttle launch and a cage full of stuffed animals becomes a jailhouse full of criminals, it’s obvious that some imaginative young people are hard at work. Playing along, their mother repeatedly reminds them that construction workers, helicopter pilots, and “even firefighters hug their moms.” Too busy to stop, this little boy and his younger sister seem to fly from one game to the next, but they finally pause to give their mother a reluctant hug. A sheepish grin from the young boy makes it clear that he enjoys the affection as well. Amusing and colorful illustrations feature the creative duos work as they turn every imaginable object into one of their toys. Riding on the wave of stories featuring everyday heroes, this story of imaginative youngsters is appealing if ultimately an extra. (Picture book. 3-6)
