Product Details

Praise

Barrett’s verse scans with a pleasingly jaunty rhythm. Pham’s stylized cartoons are done in a muted color palette; eye-catching patterns on the clothing and in the backgrounds infuse the scenes with a lively energy. The last two double-page spreads skillfully bring the energy down as a pair of brown-skinned siblings pat Mommy, Dad and each other before patting a pillow and teddy at bedtime. … [Y]oungsters will recognize the exuberance represented here as their own.
—Kirkus Reviews

Each scenario is illustrated with Pham’s exuberant artwork, featuring bright colors and happy children. … Barrett has stayed faithful to the rhythm of the original rhymes, making [Pat-a-Cake] easy to read and enjoyable to hear.
—School Library Journal
