Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Another handy carrying case, with a blue satin handle, contains A Box of Animal Crackers: Three Board Books by Jane Dyer. The three hand-size volumes Animal Crackers: Bedtime; Animal Crackers: Nursery Rhymes; and Animal Crackers: Animal Friends are excerpted from her Animal Crackers: A Delectable Collection of Pictures, Poems and Lullabies for the Very Young, which PW said, in a starred review, has "the power to entice youngest children to cherish the richness and diversity of both language and art."

Children's Literature
In this box with a blue ribbon, there are three delightful board books illustrated by Jane Dyer. The first, Animal Crackers: Animal Friends, is a collection of poems from some well-known poets (William Carlos Williams, Nancy Willard and Charlotte Pomerantz). Many others are poems that are not attributes to any author, but have made their way through generations. The second, Animal Crackers: Bedtime, is also filled with poems and rhymes that should soothe the little ones at bedtime or naptime. There are the classics�"Wee Willie Winkie," "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod," along with newer poems by Jane Yolen, Clyde Watson and Thomas Decker. The third book in the set, Animal Crackers: Nursery Rhymes contains, for the most part, very familiar poems. In addition to the pure enjoyment of the rhythm and rhyme, some teach counting, days of the week, and encourage hand actions or joining in the refrain. What really makes these books are the watercolors�filled with warmth, humor and things that will delight little ones.
—Marilyn Courtot
