Praise For Homemade Love [Board Book]

PRAISE FOR SKIN AGAIN

"The art vividly celebrates history and the realism, fun, and fantasy inside each one of us--the dreams of all the way I imagine me.' This is about skin color, but it's also about diversity within a group and within one child, and about finding the story inside the stereotype."—Booklist

PRAISE FOR GRUMP GROAN GROWL

*"[F]ew picture books can match the visceral punch of this one's opening, which does for bad moods what Sendak's wild rumpus sequence did for bedtime naughtiness."—Booklist, starred Review

PRAISE FOR HOMEMADE LOVE

"[Evans's] cheerful, splashy paintings display an abundance of affection between the girl and her parents."—Publishers Weekly

PRAISE FOR SKIN AGAIN

"Whether shared with a group or one-on-one, this is an excellent vehicle to initiate discussion on a sensitive and perennially important subject."—School Library Journal

PRAISE FOR GRUMP GROAN GROWL

"This deceptively simple picture book by masters of that form encourages readers to overcome their funks by putting them inside' and letting them slide.' . . . [I]ts power goes straight to the viscera in a way that will resonate for a long, long time."—Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR GRUMP GROAN GROWL

*"Hooks and Raschka (Be Boy Buzz; Skin Again) charge this temperamental book with few words but ample emotion."—Publishers Weekly, starred review
