There is much to wonder in the everyday lives of children, which is captured wonderfully by Sarah Garland. Well illustrated and represents very real families in their busy noisy, muddled but lovelable and endearing lives. The simple sentences and familiar phrases correlate directly with the text making them ideal reading for emergent readers. ( EYE)
