KIRKUS REVIEW

 Secure in her family, a little girl describes one happy day, introducing each detail with the phrase: ``I know a place where pillows are fluffed...and stray clothes picked up from the floor.'' In this cheerful place, food is nourishing, everyone is productively occupied (Mom makes muffins but also works at a computer while the baby plays beneath her), and there are lots of companionable moments (popping corn, reading together), all brought warmly to life in Ray's softly glowing art. As revealed on the last page, the place, of course, is home (``I know it by heart--by the number and by the street''). Specific enough to hold attention but universal in appeal; an effective tribute to home and family. (Picture book. 2-8)
