KIRKUS REVIEW

Three wonderfully simple vignettes that speak volumes through their juxtaposition. As narrated in the playful, repetitious language of a parent with a beloved child, blond Little Guy's blond daddy catches him, swings him about, and kisses his bellybutton until Little Guy laughs, "More... More"--as does brown Little Pumpkin, after her blond grandma chases her, "brings that baby right up close and tastes each of Little Pumpkin's toes." And even drowsy Little Bird wakes enough to murmur, "Mmm. Mmmm. Mmmm" when her mama kisses her and tucks her in. This joyful, unabashed affection is illustrated in the brilliant colors that appeal especially to infants; even the rainbow--bright lettering is harmoniously hand-colored. Perfect to share at bedtime with baby or toddler.
