Shen Roddie was born in Singapore and lived in many countries before settling in Oxford. Her love of words led her to become an author via a number of other careers including time spent as a journalist, copywriter and radio presenter. Kady Macdonald Denton was born in Toronto, Canada where she studied Fine Arts. She now teaches art to children in Brandon, Manitoba where she also lives and works as a children's book illustrator.From Kirkus Reviews:
A takeoff of the Ruth Krauss and Maurice Sendak classic A Hole Is to Dig (1952) that revives the same snappy childlike style of defining words that so charmed generations of early listeners. From the first yawn of morning to the last kiss goodnight, Roddie goes through meals, playtime, a visit to the park, dressing up, and more with simple one-liners describing favorite behaviors and feelings. ``Morning is for waking up . . . milk is to give some to the cat . . . and a mirror is for making faces'' are just a few examples of the cuddly sentiments expressed with joy. Exuberant Helen Oxenburyish expressions enliven scenes of two siblings trying on oversized shoes, seesawing, building tents of blankets, emptying purses, and other typical discoveries. Chipper colors add to the free-spirited frolic found in the pages of this early concept book. (Picture book. 2-5) -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
