Magical Apr 9, 2008
I got this book because I loved NINI HERE AND THERE so much. I absolutely love Anita Lobel's illustrations and if I could buy framed prints of the artwork in this book I would. This book is simple and sweet.
pure enchantment Aug 29, 2000
This book should become a classic. The illustrations areincredible and echo Van Gogh. I bought it for a child who will be three in November and who is used to imagining what is brought forth by picture. Another child in our family always selected it as the book to be "read" first. As happens with children, they had internalized the book before I had. One day I said as a joke something like "blue shoes on Tuesday" -the reply was "No! No! Red Shoes on Tuesday." Great fun.
One Lighthouse, One Moon Jul 19, 2000
As a semi-retired Elementary Librarian, I find very hard to stay out of the Childrens book Dept. of bookstores. This new one by Anita Lobel has all the earmarks of a classic! It is lovely in every way. A must for kids of all ages.
A new classic for my family Jul 12, 2000
My 18 month old daughter loves this book and I read it to her every night. The book contains 3 small stories. One counts the days of the week with 7 pairs of shoes, the next the months and the final story counts 1-10 with seashore imagery. The three stories are tied together by a striped cat you can watch for on virtually every page. The drawings are beautiful, with lots to look for on each page.
