That rating is an averaging of 4 stars for Craft's illustrations, which are pretty and interesting, although not as good (or as timeless -- so many lime green slacks!) as her later work, and 2 stars for Hillert's weird and pointless craptacular poetry. The only redeeming virtue of the text is that it employs a very limited vocabulary and thus is easily comprehensible by beginning readers. BUT, I remember thinking the poems were stupid and boring even when I was a tiny child.

Up and down.

It's Craft's magnificent, eerie, slightly hippie illustrations that make this book so wonderful. Hillert's poems are very, very basic but Craft's pictures set your brain on fire. My favorite page reads:

"I like to help my mother work.
My mother likes it, too.
I like to help my father work.
Here's something I can do."

But the illustration is a gorgeous winged woman with her antenna-sporting child collecting the stars from the sky and putting them into a flower petal basket. Okay, it's a little twee. B
Love the fantastical Art Deco-style illustrations.

Wonderfully artistic. Lots of color and very unique characters. There are lots of different stories covering many different topics. Most are little poems. Uses lots of rhyming. I would definately use in my own classroom. Would be great for using on a lesson with rhyming!
Charming beginning reader illustrated with the magical art of Kinuko Craft.
