One of my all time favorites

Little Muddy Waters is a sensational book. It is one of my personal favorites. I have read this book over and over and over to kindergarten and first grade children at my school and they absolutely love it!! All the adults that hear it love it too. This is about a little mischievious boy who learns a big lesson. Ron Daise does an excellent job integrating old wives tales and remedies in this story. Lots of interesting gullah culture! I wish I had more books by Ron Daise. This one is a keeper!!

Fantastic Book! Great Illustration!

The book has a great story line and when listened to the cassette tape with Ron Daise reading it in the Gullah accent makes it even better. The illustration and use of colors are fantastic. Barbara McArtor does a great job with color selection and keeping a childs eye captive. She uses bright, vivid colors. She also continues her story (picture) line throughout the book. You will notice the cat numerous times and her characters are always carried from one page to another keeping in uniform with the previous page. This is a must buy for your child. I'd like to see a list of more books illustrated by Ms. McArtor.
