Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This delightful picture book is totally toddler-friendly. The book is printed on heavyweight paper stock that is sturdy and "bendy," a perfect combination for little ones who like to thumb through their books again and again, pointing out objects and colors, or who simply enjoy carrying their "read-to-me" favorites with them wherever they go. Illustrated with big, eye-catching pictures, the story is simple and direct. It is also one that both toddlers and their parents will easily relate to—how do you catch all the colors in the rainbow? While Ned and his mother try to come up with a solution, young readers get a gentle introduction to colors. Written in simple, straightforward language that is set in a large, easy-to-read type, this affordable book could also be used by a beginning reader to read to a younger sibling. A title in the "Toddler Story Book" series. 2000, Dorling Kindersley, . Ages 1 to 6. Reviewer: Dianne Ochiltree

PreS-These books help fill a need for simple, short, and graphically interesting stories for children not yet ready for full-length stories. The artwork is large, colorful, and well matched to the texts. One Smiling Sister, told in rhyme, introduces the numbers 1 to 10 through events and people in a preschooler's typical day at home and in school. Grumble-Rumble! follows a young kangaroo that skips breakfast to go out to play and is then frightened by what she thinks is a monster, only to learn that it is her empty stomach grumbling. In Ned's Rainbow, a little boy is sad when he can't touch the rainbow, so his clever mother paints one on his wall. Walsh's colorful rainbows on every page make the book lovely to look at, and the text is simple and realistic. Appealing characters and familiar settings and situations will make these titles popular with the preschool set.-JoAnn Jonas, Carlsbad City Library, San Diego, CA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
