School Library Journal - School Library JournalPreS Miranda chronicles the activities of a toddler's day, from a good morning hug through games such as peek-a-boo and ``so big'' to bedtime bath. On almost every cardboard page there is at least one flap to lift. Sometimes the picture underneath shows a change in baby's situation: a howling toddler changes to a satisfied child once his finger is bandaged, for example. Other times, the flap is part of a game the toddler would play, as when baby pops up from the clothes in the laundry basket. In short, each hinged picture contributes a logical movement to the activities. The book's simple language will do nothing to enhance vocabulary, but this simplicity will insure that the toddler will soon be able to ``read'' the book aloud. The pictures are realistic, uncluttered, colorful, and amusing, especially the facial expressions. Preschoolers will enjoy this look at themselves and/or younger siblingsas long as the fragile flaps last. Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, Minn.
