Praise For Walk On!: A Guide for Babies of All Ages

*"Frazee's saucy invitation to all generations to 'walk on' has just enough kick and sass to incite action in babies (and grown-ups) everywhere."

— Kirkus Reviews

"'Walk On!' illustrates the world from the perspective of a not-yet walking baby.  Chairs loom impossibly tall.  The living room is a yellow haze punctuated by items of importance in full color: ball, block, rattle.  But the witty teacher's voice Frazee adopts here makes the process of learning to walk into somethingmore... In the end, 'Walk On!' seems to be less about the baby's view than about providing life lesson's for people reaching other milestones, on the order of Dr. Seuss' "Oh the Places You'll Go!'  Those readers should love it..."  --New York Times Book Review (August 13, 2006)
