    And, more important, does she live in Central America, or have her parents migrated to the United States? The depictions of women border on stereotype the great-grandmother with her spectacles and old-fashioned bib apron; grandmother with her perky '50s hairdo and sewing machine, but Reiser's attention to the reworking of similar detail in each frame is commendable and her gently poked fun a warmly effective way to reinforce stories of family history. A little girl relates the simple text as her great-grandmother is shown making tortillas for her grandmother over an outdoor fire, her grandmother makes them for her mother in a farm kitchen with a cast-iron stove, her mother is shown cooking for her in a modern kitchen, and the child prepares paper tortillas for her doll on a toy stove. I could imagine these books, but I hoped to find artists who had grown up in each of those cultures to provide accurate and evocative illustrations in a style appropriate to each tradition. In The Surprise Family Reiser tells how when a chick that has been raised by a boy grows up, she in turn raises a clutch of ducklings. As one might expect of a person in her medical line of work, among her titles are books that treat relationships among family and friends, but she has also published animal tales and celebrations of nature.

    Publishers Weekly, January 18,review of Dog and Cat, p. I think there is a need for books that not only demonstrate a new language or describe an unfamiliar culture but also address the process of reaching out across differences. The dog gets more than he bargained for when he heeds his instinct and chases the cat. Reiser's Tortillas and Lullabies Greenwillow, tells essentially "the same, but different" story, narrated by a little girl in Costa Rica. MDS "scheduldes" the words that describe the numbers are user-added, and based on public domain editions of the system. The modern mother does not wear a business suit but what looks like a close-fitting housedress.

    Picture books are like quilts. Readers see that, over time, some details of life change, but not the love behind the efforts, and the simple and repetitive text reflects the unchanging nature of love. Author, as Lynn Whisnant Reiser, of medical and professional articles on psychiatry, psychoanalysis, and medical education. But it made me question everything. The ranch was a long way from town. With this on my mind, I saw two sets of parents and children interacting in a video store— two polite adults trying to ignore each other, absorbed in choosing videos, and at their knees two children busy making friends.

Cherry pies and lullabies book

In her first published effort, Dog and Cat, Reiser portrays the meeting of a restless dog and his neighbor, a drowsy cat. The cat jumps on him, and with a trick teaches the dog a scary lesson he's unlikely to forget. Although the plot could appeal particularly to adoptive families, the theme is universal: Love transcends boundaries and labels.

And then does it again in Spanish? I had so many fans who wrote to me about my first book "Dirty Rocker Boys. Her husband, a chef by trade, is the cook in her house. And then does it again in Spanish? Depictions of their lives became the illustrations for the book. Much of my time is spent practicing and teaching at Yale Medical School.

Words and dream images appear in my work every day. Although Horn Book reviewer Roger Sutton believed the illustrations "resist emotional resonance," Mirta Ojito praised them in the New York Times Book Review, describing them as "gorgeous pictures" and "exquisitely detailed full-page illustrations.

Picture books are like quilts. Wordings may not come from in-copyright sources. At first glance this sort of work may seem very different from the process of making picture books. While working on "Cherry Pies and Lullabies, conversations with a Japanese friend and a Latin friend about our mothers and grandmothers inspired the idea of similar books about the continuity of family and tradition in other cultures.

After the pies, Reiser offers similar treatment to family traditions of making garlands of flowers once gathered in fields, now wrapped from the florist and quilts once hand-sewn, now store-bought.

When a friend of hers from El Salvador saw the paintings, she said, they reminded her so much of home that she began to cry. We may lose one. Told from the perspective of a young girl, the story opens with her great-grandmother making tortillas for the girl's grandmother, then moves through each successive generation to the present day, as the child makes tortillas for her doll.

Music for Brahms's ""Lullaby"" appears at the end, with Reiser's lyrics.
