WHO WILL PICK ME UP WHEN I FALL? by Dorothy E. Molnar

WHO WILL PICK ME UP WHEN I FALL?

Age Range: 4 - 7

KIRKUS REVIEW

 Weary of the confusion of being picked up by someone different every day (if it's Tuesday, ``JosÇ's daddy takes us swimming...Then Ann meets me''), Sarton hides out at home, planning to run away on Friday. Fortunately, Mom is sufficiently in tune to find out what's bothering her, and after the two agree that they'd both like to escape--together--sometime soon, Sarton is happily out the door. Trivas's freely rendered watercolors nicely extend the story's humorous but sympathetic picture of the stresses on a contemporary child and her working parent. (Picture book. 4-7)
