Little Elephant asks the questions that haunt him in Mommy, What If... ? by Carla Dijs. "What if you were not here? Who would take care of me? What then?" Pop-ups picture the baby's unpleasant imaginings (none too threateningeven the tiger does not look menacing); foldout pages reveal the mother's reassuring replies.

PreS-Little Elephant is worried that his mother may not always be there to care for him. She reassures him, but he continues to question her: "But what if a camel put me on his back and ran away with me?" By opening a flap, readers find that she would, of course, rescue him. Similar questions follow, until Little Elephant gets sleepy and his mother tucks him in bed with a kiss. The story is comforting, and the flaps are sturdily constructed, but some may find that the scenes under the flaps look awkward in juxtaposition with the spreads. The simple color illustrations are set against ample white space, and the animals that the little elephant worries about are depicted in a nonthreatening way. A supplemental purchase.-Melinda Piehler, North Tonawanda Public Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
