Review
  • Books for Youth, For the Young: Ages 1-3. Several things distinguish this winning board book and its companion books, Joshua's Night Whispers, Mama Birds, Baby Birds, and Rain Feet. First, it features an African American little boy and his family; second, it steers clear of "traditional" board-book topics (such as the ABCs), concentrating, instead, on feelings stemming from experiences many children have in common: stomping through puddles on a rainy day and being afraid of noises at night. Johnson's text is spare and sweetly poetic, "Baby birds sitting, their mama flying in the air. / Sister says, `Look, Joshua, she's tending to them too. / Feeding them . . . . Loving them . . . . / Like mama does for you.'" Mitchell's watercolors in muted tones are equally quiet and simple as they show a loving family and a curious, contented little boy. ((Reviewed December 1, 1994)) -- Stephanie Zvirin
  • PreS--These titles are characteristic of Johnson's earlier books in their emphasis on warm, loving relationships in an African American family. In Joshua by the Sea, a young boy enjoys a day at the beach with his family; in Joshua's Night Whispers, he seeks comfort from his father when he wakes up in the middle of the night; in Mama Bird, the child discovers a nest of baby birds with his sister; and in Rain Feet he splashes through puddles in a yellow slicker and boots. The pastel watercolor illustrations that fill each double-page spread are cozy and soothing, and the language is rhythmic and quietly reassuring. Solid choices to enhance any board-book collection.--Emily Kutler, Summit Free Public Library, NJ
