KIRKUS REVIEW

A toddler and his father play a tickling game that leaves them both laughing. Beginning slowly, “me papa tickle me feet he call it ‘finger treat’,” this father and son play a game that is obviously a favorite for both of them. Soon, fingers are flying, eyes are watering, and they play until “me scream and run (but, oh, what fun!). When papa tickle me feet.” Rhythmic verses mimic the wild dance of fingers across a ticklish tummy, up around some ticklish ribs, and down to linger on ticklish feet. Giggling softly, then increasing with tempo until he is fairly gasping with laughter, this baby enjoys the attention of his father in a game that every parent will recognize. A greatly oversized format hosts powerfully bold, practically life-sized illustrations rendered with thick brush strokes that feature close-ups of this roly-poly toddler and his loving father. Perfect just for reading, but even more promising for its play-along potential. (Picture book. 2-5)
