KIRKUS REVIEW

The positive and negative traits of mommies, daddies and children are reviewed from the child's viewpoint as Junior decides that Mommies may be for yelling orders but also for reading stories, that daddies may be for getting angry, but also for fixing bicycles. The definitions of parental roles are lacking in the essentials, to a noticeable extent. The child's role seems superfluous, but granted its inclusion, the definitions again barely probe anything meaningful. Hardly a reflective book or a sensitive one, the comic pictures in two colors are at least pleasing.
