Publisher's Weekly Review

African-American children star in the newest pair of titles by Toni Trent Parker, photographed by Earl Anderson. Sweets and Treats features a line of verse beneath cameos of scarecrows, spiders and black cats; opposite, crisp photos of costumed kids appear. Christmas inspires Snowflake Kisses and Gingerbread Smiles. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


School Library Journal Review

PreS-This practical approach to Halloween shows photographs of babies, toddlers, and primary-grade children, one per spread, dressed in costume and ready to trick-or-treat. The rhyming text is very short and simple, "What am I?/Can't you see?/I'm a colorful clown-/silly me!" The full-color photographs placed on uncluttered, colored backgrounds are eye-catching and lovely. Costumes range from fairy princess to construction worker to a girl dressed as a firefighter. Young children are sure to come up with ideas for their own costumes.-Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL (c) Copyright 2010.
