Little Nino's Pizzeriaby Karen Barbour
Synopses & Reviews
"A visual feast. . . .The electricity of the paintings will draw children back for a second look." —School Library Journal
Working together at a family pizzeria goes from cozy to chaotic when the business expands and becomes a big fancy restaurant. No matter how he tries to be helpful, little Tony is now always in the way. He misses Little Nino's. But so does someone else—his dad! And in a delightful twist, this simply worded read-aloud delivers a thoughtful message about what success and family are all about.
Storyline connects easily to curriculum on neighborhoods, community, and economics.
Colorful Big Book delivers exuberant story about a little boy who helps his father in a family pizzeria that grows too big too fast.
Tony likes to help his father at their small family restaurant, but everything changes when Little Nino's Pizzeria becomes a fancier place. Barbour's vibrant artwork is packed with color and energy.
This exuberant picture book tells the story of Tony, a little boy who helps his father in the family pizzeria. “The scenes are full of visually boisterous activity, with under-pinnings of humorous detail and a clear sense of family closeness so important to the story. A decidedly fresh-looking book.”--Booklist
