Praise for "A Squash and a Squeeze"
"Pen-and-ink outlined with bright watercolor washes are set against a white background. It seems that light is shining through the pages. Best of all is the language; the refrain reverberates even after the story is over... A charming story hour addition." -- "School Library Journal"
Praise for "Superworm"
"A word lover's delight in rousing, rhyming verse." -- "New York Times Book Review"
*"The unlikely superhero with his googly eyes and winning smile will be hit, and the rhythmic rhyme will have audiences chanting along by the end of the story.... Silly and slimy -- superfun!" -- "Kirkus Reviews," starred review
Praise for "Stick Man"
*"Donaldson's rhymes never skip a beat, and Scheffler personalizes the many animals, people and settings in his witty watercolors. This yarn could become a December perennial." -- "Publishers Weekly," starred review
*"Scheffler's engaging illustrations, Donaldson's irresistible rhyming text and repeated refrains make this a winning read-aloud that will stick around long after the holiday season." -- "Kirkus Reviews," starred review

Two delightful characters - a little old lady (essential grey hair in bun!) and a wise old man (long, curious white beard!)with the help of numerous farmyard animals assist the old lady to realise that the house she thought was tiny wasn't as small as she thought. An important lesson in appreciating what you have.
Your child will be introuduced to various animals who all move into the old lady's tiny house on advice of the wise old man causing chaos and her ultimate realisation that perhaps her house isn't as small as she first thought.
However I did not find it quite so good as the 3 I have mentioned, mainly because its simply a bit less exciting...
As you can see from the other reviews it can tell your children lessons in life about valuing what you have, rather than hankering after other things, but 3 year old children like a laugh and a good story. This gives them both, but not quite up there with the others by the same author.
However still a very good childrens book.
