It seemed to Lizzy,
all her mother
ever said was
Will she ever say
Kids will know just
what Lizzy is feelins
in every scene --
and moms will also
find reason to smile!

Jessica Harper is an actor and singer-songwriter whose CDs of children's music have Won many honors, including the Parents' Choice Gold, Oppenheim Platinum, and NAPPA awards. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their two daughters, Nora and Elizabeth.From Publishers Weekly:
In their third book, this sister duo (I'm Not Going to Chase the Cat Today!) offers testimony to the values of positive reinforcement. The relationship between pigtailed Lizzie and her mother spirals into an unproductive duel of "don'ts." The parent's litany includes "Don't bring the sand home from the beach. Don't feed the kitty cat a peach. Don't, don't, don't!" while Lizzie's list of don'ts for her mother concludes, "Don't chat, chat, chat on the telephone. Don't lick so much of my ice-cream cone. Don't, don't, don't!" The premise borrows a page from David Shannon's No, David!, and the text here sometimes stretches to complete the rhyme. Although the artwork possesses an editorial cartoon quality that starts to wear thin, the illustrator alters the pacing with small and big boxes on the spreads, and by using the word "don't" as a graphic element, sometimes large, other times as a kind of wallpaper pattern. The book's resolution with mom and daughter agreeing to plenty of "Dos" ("Do please let me keep the lizard. Do take me sledding in a blizzard. Do, do, do!") accentuates the positive. Ages 4-8.
