Product Details


“In this short tale, a young girl with brown skin and curly black pigtails awakens from a nap on the sofa to find her mother is no longer sitting with her. The bright, clear, and colorful illustrations allow readers to see that her parent has not gone far. . . . This book introduces children to the concept of solving a puzzle using information or evidence gleaned from the pictures and from the child’s monologue. . . . the simple childlike text and vibrant artwork are effective and winning. A solid addition to most collections.”—School Library Journal

“A part of the appeal of this early reader geared toward rising first graders is that children are likely to relate to that sense of panic and concern the child experiences upon noticing that Mommy is gone—and the sense of relief when Mommy is finally found. The illustrations are crisp, page-filling, and colorful, and both the protagonist and Max have expressive faces. . . . This hardworking early reader is definitely worth checking out.”—Kirkus Reviews
