School Library Journal Review

PreSLawrence offers a glimpse into the simple joys of a British toddlers day. The repetitious, large-print text begins, Baby loves Mummy and Daddy more than anything in the world. ExceptBreakfast. Each page reveals the childs delight at a new discovery, as Baby chases Puss, romps through flowers, bangs a drum, and is finally tucked in for the night. The large, double-spread illustrations in pen and ink and watercolor are similar to those in Helen Oxenburys Tickle, Tickle (S & S, 1999) and skillfully reveal Babys excited reactions to everyday situations. The sturdy paper and brightly colored pictures are just right for toddlers and would keep their attention during storytime. Im Too Busy is less successful. Katy, the narrator, tries to entice her cat, Charlie, to eat. Although she fixes his favourite foods, he announces Im too busy, and continues pretending that hes a traffic cop, an astronaut, a monster, and a dancer. Finally, Charlies stomach growls and he decides its time to eat. The double-spread, childlike illustrations, though rich in color, are static and do nothing to advance the rather bland text.Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI (c) Copyright 2010.
