Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Mice, a rottweiler, an arachnid and a few other assorted critters make sturdy reappearances in five board book versions of picture books. In Ellen Stoll Walsh's Mouse Paint, ``three white mice on a white piece of paper" enjoy a colorful romp, while in Walsh's Mouse Count a similar gaggle narrowly escapes being served for dinner (Harcourt/Red Wagon, $6 each, 28p, ages 1-3 ISBN 0-15-200265-0; -200266-9 Sept.). Yet another mouse searches the animal kingdom for companionshipand finds an unexpected respondentin Eric Carle's Do You Want to Be My Friend? (HarperFestival, $6.95, 32p, ages 2-6, ISBN 0-694-00709-9 Sept.). The rewards of industriousness are celebrated in a second Carle title, The Very Busy Spider; its embossed web brings a tactile dimension to his familiar collage artwork (Philomel, $9.95, 26p, ages 2-up ISBN 0-399-22919-1 Aug.). Finally, the canine in question is Alexandra Day's beloved Carl, who takes charge of a crew of toddlers in Carl Goes to Day Care (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, $5.95, ages 1-3 ISBN 0-374-31145-5 Sept.).
Publishers Weekly
A pair of oversize board books introduce classics to youngest booklovers: Let's Go Visiting by Sue Williams, illus. by Julie Vivas ("A cumulative counting tale bursting with frisky baby animals," said PW); and Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh (a PW Best Book of the Year). In the first, the child narrator introduces colors, numbers and animals, while the trio of mice in the second title use red, blue and yellow to demonstrate primary, complimentary and contrasting colors.

Children's Literature
It is not surprising that this book has won practically every children's book award—it is one of the most imaginative presentations ever on the subject of colors. When three white mice discover three jars of paint—one red, one yellow, and one blue—each climbs right in. The red mouse finds that if he steps in a yellow puddle and does a little dance, his paint puddle turns orange. And so it goes with the other mice as they create green and purple, respectively. But the mice must still return to their original white color so they can hide on white paper where the cat can't find them. This latest edition is a large format board book meant for lap sharing. 2006 (orig. 1989), Harcourt, Ages 2 up.

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
New to board book format, this is a book for young children that tells a simple story of color mixing and camouflage that has subtle concepts underneath. It is an amusing presentation of a lesson about colors that can be shared with children for a number of years. Both parents and children will enjoy the wonderful illustrations. 1995 (orig.
