Shirley Hughes has illustrated more than 200 books in her lifetime. Her many awards include the Kate Greenaway Medal and the prestigious Eleanor Farjeon Award for her services to children's literature.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-"I like to chat," says the same little girl who appeared in Hughes's Bouncing and Giving (both Candlewick, 1994). The child goes on to describe chatting with her cat, the lady in the supermarket, her stuffed dog Bemily, grandpa and grandma on the phone, and with Dad "...when he comes to say good night." The brief text (11 sentences) is expanded upon by Hughes's warm, detailed illustrations, which are rendered in colored pencils, watercolor, and pen line. Men, women, and children of many ages and ethnicities are shown engaging in conversation. Details like seat belts, refrigerator magnets, garden flowers, and crib mobiles add depth to each page. This book will delight those lap-sitters who are eagerly learning the names of things around them-children will not want to turn the page until they have pointed out every detail. The endpapers are covered with colorful pictures of the little girl and her baby brother demonstrating many other verbs-perhaps a sign of more delights to come.
