Children's board book reviews for babies and toddlers





*Little Mister* by Randy Duburke







Little Mister
by Randy Duburke
Baby-preschool 22 pages Chronicle Books March 2006 Board book    

Future musician or budding artist? The toddler in this book likes to draw with dad and play piano with mom. Heís active and playful from breakfast time on. Mom has to catch him before she dresses him, and Little Mister likes to climb aboard the vacuum while dad cleans.

Writer and illustrator Randy DuBurke sees the humor in children. Little Mister appears to be cooking up some soother soup in the pot on the kitchen floor - and colanders make perfect chef hats when youíre in a pinch. Dadís ears make a great steering wheel when youíre riding shoulder level. And what is the perfect hiding spot for a toddler? Behind a skinny lamp post.

The illustrations are watercolors, pen and inks, and acrylic paints. Just as some families are, Little Misterís family is a mixed race family. There are no stereotypes in the book. Both mom and dad share the housecleaning and childcare, and little Mister sleeps with a stuffed doll.

The author is praising and enjoying little children on every page of this book. In reference to the last page of this book: Good Work, Randy DuBurke!
