Review:

"Morstad (When I Was Small) continues her celebration of childhood innocence, painting children whose dreamy but often somber expressions give them a particularly doll-like quality. Fragmentary captions ('How to go fast'; 'How to feel the breeze') are matched with pictures that show children providing examples, crossing the page on scooters and stilts or zooming downhill on a bicycle. The best moments occur when the captions are interpreted in distinctively childlike ways: 'How to make a sandwich' is a pileup of children and sofa cushions. 'How to make new friends' shows a boy drawing a group of shock-headed stick figures in chalk on the blacktop. And 'How to wash your socks' accompanies children dancing in a puddle in their stocking feet. The design and typography are straight out of the '60s, and the children's classic clothing and timeless circumstances — no cars, no cell phones, no schools, no parents — will draw nostalgic adults as well as children. Intentionally or not, it's a reminder of an era when children were permitted time just to stand and stare. Ages 4 — 8. Agent: Emily van Beek, Folio Literary Management."
