Dan is confronted by adults saying "Don't Touch" at every turn, so he gets out his clay and shapes it into a special creation complete with his own "Don't Touch" sign

K - Grade 1 People keep telling Dan , "Don't touch!": the pot is hot, the tools are sharp, the paint is wet, the scab is healing. . . . After a whole day of "Don't touch!" he works off his frustrations on a nice big globby chunk of modeling clay that he can SQUEEZE and SQUISH and PUNCH and POKE to his heart's delight. When his sense of touch is finally sated, Dan puts his clay away and hangs up his very own sign that says "DON'T TOUCH! FROM DAN." Colorful illustrations are successful at showing Dan's frustration and revenge. Very satisfying to kids who are constantly admonished to keep hands off so many things so much of the time as well as a salutory reminder to adults that although the many prohibitions are for the child's own safety, they can rile the most patient person into mini-rebellion. Lots of lovely action words and a great lead-in to a modeling-clay activity binge. Joan McGrath, Education Centre Library, Toronto, Ontario, Can .
