Mary Ann Hoberman is a master at rhyming text that is consistent and clever. Marla Frazee's engaging illustrations are a perfect match for the text and convey so much of the reality of mothering so many children. When I spotted this book on my list to review the first few lines of text came back to me immediately; I read this book literally hundreds of times and never tired of it. There is always something new to spot in the illustrations. Sometimes sightings inspired us to try different activities or even foods. The family featured in this book is a group of people I would enjoy spending time with!
