From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K–From breakfast to bedtime, readers follow a pair of siblings throughtheir day of jam, syrup, mud, paste, and mashed potatoes (and the yucky effects they have on cats, dogs, teddy bears, pants, etc.). The chanting rhymes celebrate all this stickiness: Sticky people love to play with/Furry teddy bears./Fuzzy, wuzzy, sticky also./No one sticky cares. However, the delicate watercolor illustrations downplay the glorious mess. The book winds down with Dad washingthe goo away with a bath.The parents put their cleanchildren to bed, but the last page shows the day’s sticky remnants and promises an equally messy tomorrow.
