Synopsis: The author of School Can Wait offers a book that "fairly bursts with vitality" (School Library Journal). Children will enjoy seeing their familiar routines done in different ways, as each member of a young girl's family exhibits his own special way of getting up, getting dressed, and getting breakfast. Full-color, cartoon-like drawings throughout.
From School Library Journal:
PreS-Gr 1-- A family wakes up and goes through the day. Baby, kindergartner, parents, grandparents, cat, and dog bathe, eat, relieve themselves, work, and play, each according to his age and role in life. (Before bed ``Granny braids her hair and soaks her teeth. . . . Mommy puts her hair in curlers and brushes her teeth. Clover has a wobbly tooth! Grandpa doesn't have many teeth or much hair--and neither does Luke!'') With such a simple concept, the illustration takes on special importance. Enter Robins, who has not departed from his typical broad comic style ( Where Did I Come From? Lyle Stuart, 1973 , Sweet Dreams and Monsters Crown, 1986 , etc.). The book fairly bursts with vitality and Robins' special unrepressed view of the world. Parents or teachers who might want to share a book such as this with young children are likely to consider Robins' cartoon of Granny pulling up her bloomers or Mommy putting on her bra and panties more appropriate to Mad magazine readers than to preschoolers. Otherwise this good-natured glimpse of how we all function should prove entertaining to those with young and open minds. --Ann Stell, The Smithtown Library, N.Y.
