    책 내용
    The spontaneity and delight of play is captured perfectly in this trio of multigenerational, multiracial 'love stories' about three pairs of babies and their grown-ups. Told in a natural, colloquial tone, the simple, engaging text is finely honed with a rhythm that is musical. The style is as buoyant and infectious as the actions described: 'Little Guy"s daddy has to run like anything just to catch that baby up.' Williams carries the same basic framework and language through each story, generating the repetition that is so satisfying to very young listeners, while the stories and characters maintain their own distinctions. Just as she celebrates universality within the text, Williams presents diversity with characteristic flair within her illustrations. Little Guy and his father are white, Little Pumpkin is African-American and her grandmother is white, and Little Bird and her mother are both Asian-American. Natural and unforced, Williams" choices are an accurate reflection of American society, but are noteworthy in their representation in books for this age group. Uncluttered, yet filled with movement, the splashy, vibrant paintings in gouache feature vigorous portraits and large, clearly defined objects set against a textured expanse of sweeping brushstrokes. The text appears in rainbow-hued letters within the illustrations, adding to the appealing design. Although it is a fine vehicle for toddler storytimes, the real strength of this book lies in the intimacy achieved when it is shared one-on-one between babies and adults or older siblings. A joyous expression of verbal and physical affection, these are truly love stories for our times. More, more, more . . .

  • 베라 B. 윌리엄스 (Vera B. Williams)

    1927년 미국 캘리포니아에서 태어났습니다. 가족, 이웃, 친구들의 이야기를 소재로 하여 물질적인 가치보다는 여럿이 함께 사는 즐거움과 사람들 간의 따스한 정을 많이 다루었습니다. 어린이와 어른 모두에게 진한 감동을 불러일으키는 그림은 마치 어린이가 그린 것처럼 매우 단순한 것이 특징입니다.『엄마의 의자』『또, 또, 또 해주세요』로 칼데콧 영예 상을 받았습니다. 그 외에도『체리와 체리 씨』『내게 아주 특별한 선물』『우리들의 흥겨운 밴드』등이 있습니다.
