Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Absolute Best  May 1, 2008
I purchased this book for my 2 year old daughter to replace a paper back one I previously purchased that was destroyed by various infant beverages (hmmm...I wonder who did that).

Anyhoo...the book exceeded my expectations beyond my greatest imagination. My daughter and I already loved the book to pieces, but getting the hard covered one really has made it that much more of a favorite.

This story is a definite must have for any black parent or any parent attempting to raise a race-neutral child. The illustrations are big (which keeps my daughters attention), the story offers the repetition that children respond to (my daughter repeats many of the words with me), and helps parents teach about family members (mentions of cousin, daddy, mommy, aunt, nannie and gran-gran).

Enjoy this one with babies on up through the years.

P.S. Keep it out of reach of the kids if you want to keep it for years because it is sure to be a family favorite!
So Much by Trish Cooke  Aug 13, 2007
This book has been a family favorite for over 11 years. I first purchased this book for my son when he was 1 and am now reading it to my 2 year old daughter. My son still recalls the story, beautiful pictures but most of all family members and myself reading it to him time and time again. My daughter is now experiencing the same warm expressions of "family love" and beautiful pictures of an African American family celebrating a birthday but most of all being together. This book has become my daughter's favorite and she picks it up at least 4-5 times a day to be read. I've bought another copy just so she can have her own. My son has told me he wants to be keep his copy of the book so that he will be able to read this wonderful book to his own children.
My 17 month old LOVES this book  Jul 7, 2007
Helen Oxenbury's illustrations make this book so appealing to toddlers and parents alike. The bright colors and playful style really draw you in. The author's use of repetition is also great, which my daughter enjoys. This is a long book and she can easily sit in my lap and focus on the entire story, allowing me to finish reading before she turns the pages. I agree with the other reviewer - the cousin fighting with the baby is kind of a negative aspect of the book, but often I will substitute other words on those pages. This is a must-have addition to any multicultural book collection!
A Pleasure  Aug 21, 2006
This book is loved and enjoyed by my students (1st and 2nd grades)each and every year. The rhythm and repeat of Ms. Cooke's words captivate and charm. They are tickled with the antics of the family as they each arrive at the party. We have had great discussions about the choice of play and family differences each member brings to the party. Her message reminds each person listening that they too are loved "so much" by their family.
Shame about the fighting...  Jul 3, 2006
We have this book at our local child care centre. I love the rhythm of the language and I love the illustrations and my little boy does too. What I don't like is the "pow-pow", "I want to fight the baby" part. It's not an idea that I want to encourage at all - some good natured wrestling can be fun, of course, but it needs a lot of explanation. All of the carers naturally substitute other words to illustrate the story; usually I say that the boys want to tickle the baby. Parents and carers who want to promote a less violent world should be aware of this.
