Product Details


★ “This book is exactly what being a toddler is all about, and Schwartz shares it with simple language, wonderful art, and an attitude of sheer delight.”—School Library Journal, Starred Review
★  “Bright, clean, colorful illustrations are set against generous white space for maximum impact and appeal. Schwartz has for decades been one of our most tuned-in, honest, and sympathetic chroniclers of childhood; here she is at her absolute best.”The Horn Book, Starred Review

“The illustrations are classic Schwartz, with finely drawn, carefully composed vignettes in vivid colors of children at play. The stories’ pacing varies, but each one gets it just right. . . . Put 13 Stories About Harris into the hands of young readers ready for a baker’s dozen of whimsical tales.”— Book Page

“Organized into a baker’s dozen of vignettes, each of the book’s chapters is full of charm and understated humor.” Foreword Reviews  

“Schwartz’s simple, straightforward diction maps precisely to her delicate line drawings to create nostalgic snapshots that demonstrate the way magic can be found in the mundane.”—Publishers Weekly

“Because of their brevity, the chapters leave room for listeners to embellish the stories with their own creativity . . . . Harris gets into some mischief, but the book’s tone remains gentle and warm.” Booklist
