KIRKUS REVIEW

A large two-color picture book with one line text is all about things that fall -- all things that is, except Jimmy who doesn't fall when Daddy tosses him up in the air because Daddy catches him. Lots of tantalizing details in the delicate, luxurious pictures by Margaret Bloy Graham, who illustrated the Jane Jonquil stories of Charles Norman. A peppering of red apples pops out on the trees and falls to the ground leaves flutter down on small children and squirrels in the park; snow falls on a white, white hill. As fresh as country air with a bedtime pacing-down to falling things at the close of day.
