From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- An awkward attempt at explaining in verse how people look and act differently at work and at play. Exaggerated garish cartoons, reminiscent of Mad magazine, are repeatedly insulting in their stereotyped depictions of different ethnic and social groups. As a wealthy family is shown elegantly lolling around their swimming pool, a middle-class family is pictured in front of the TV. The father is unshaven, fat, tattooed, and has holes in his socks. Hispanics are illustrated with huge, pathetic, sunken eyes and forlorn expressions. The clumsy rhyme jumps from topic to topic, as in a nonsensical transition from folk costumes to clowns or from the climates in which people reside to boats. This combination of bungling text and offensive illustrations will affront anyone who has the misfortune to read this book.
