Editorial Review

 

Praise for A Porcupine in a Pine Tree:

“The clearly Canadian lyrics are perfectly complemented by the fun and dynamic illustrations.” — CBC Parents

Praise for Dashing Through the Snow:

“Parents and teachers will readily sing Becker’s rhymes, and the chorus – part of which ends with a resounding “eh!” – encourages full listener participation.” — National Reading Campaign

“Much like the holiday season and any good celebration, the excitement and chaos build through every page turn in this picture book. Expect to be singing this book over and over again throughout the holiday season as Becker’s rhymes are infectious and possibly addictive. Zimmerman’s delightful and detailed watercolour illustrations complement the text perfectly with their wit and energy. There is so much to see in every illustration; don’t be surprised if you spot something new each time you read/sing through the story.” — CM: Canadian Review of Materials

“Every bit as fun as its predecessor. This book has the potential of engaging the entire family since no one who reads it will be able to refrain from singing out loud.” — Montreal Gazette
