KIRKUS REVIEW

 The word cozy--warmth, ease, snugness--may not be the perfect choice for this compendium of hundreds of action and sensory experiences associated with one long day. The collaborators behind A House Is A House For Me (1978), which gets a plug in this book, include seesaws, fruit stands, cheek-popping, tongue-clicking, insect buzzing, alleys, clowns, cellars, traffic noise, airplanes overhead. As a chronicle of the author's favorite things, the relentless surge of words in rhyme offers toddlers much to listen to. Fraser's illustration are just as daunting; the spreads require lingering even as the words push readers ever onward. Accept this as riotously pell-mell wordplay and as a catalog of a child's world--then it's right on the mark. (Picture book. 4-7)
