Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pictures and a Happy Storey My 17 month old daughter loves this book. The colourful pictures are all that are needed to tell the storey. The two kids use their imganation to play, and in each picture, the toys are being used in new and creative ways. My daughter really liked the pictures at first, and with easy to identify objects, we played find the ____ on every page. As she gets older, I think she'll like the storey (I sure do!), and the ideas for play in the storey will give children and parents ideas on how to play. We've read this book many times, and it will be a well read book by the time we are done with it.

A good pick for sparking pretend play and maybe even an occasional embrace. (School Library Journal)

Children will have fun looking at the detailed pictures that show the busy boy æat workæ and charmingly portray the relationship between him and his toddler sister. (Booklist)
