Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In this delightful entry in the "Harper Growing Tree" series, kids are invited in to meet a group of kids playing and sharing their toys. The rhyming text is perfect for that pregnant pause—after which one or two reading kids will chime in with the words. The pictures offer plenty to discuss and show a multicultural cast of characters that are not stereotypical—girls play with trains and trucks and boys enjoy them too. The message of sharing is subtle and not didactic. The pictures and the book are quite appealing. 2000, HarperFestival, $9.95. Ages 2 up. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

PreS-This rhyming book teaches object identification and how to get along with others, to make friends, and to share. Set in a preschool classroom, the story first features children playing independently with objects that rhyme. "We see a little boy who has a block./And a little girl who has a clock." Later pages show classmates offering to share and interacting with friends. The pictures are clear and bright with plenty of white space highlighting the youngsters at play.-June Roberts, Pennington Elementary School, Nashville, TN Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
