KIRKUS REVIEW

When trying to do anything new or exciting, there are apt to be some minor bumps and bruises and the children featured in this story manage to shake off their falls and try it again. While the message that it is a good idea to keep going even though they have received a setback is clear, it is unclear whether the children eventually learn that trying to skip rope in a long dress is a bad idea or that running through the house with a toy wrapped around one’s waist might lead to another fall. Rhyming text with repetitive sounds fill the text. Illustrations rendered in watercolors seem sloppy rather than childlike, spilling over the pages in a haphazard manner. An overly simplistic message and unremarkable illustrations keep this tale from hitting its mark. Boo hoo, this one is a boo-boo. (Picture book. 2-5)
