Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Loveable Minerva Louise is now appearing in board books. To avoid getting wet when the rain starts, Minerva Louise hides under a lamb. But that doesn't last long because the frisky lamb gambols away. Seeing no place to avoid the rain, Minerva Louise decides to jump in the pond and take a bath. The bold simple drawings are full of charm.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-Two titles with bright, jovial illustrations. In the first book, Minerva Louise wants to play a game with her friends, but she can't find them. Young children will spot the farmyard animals hiding around the barn, in the haystack, and beside the tractor long before the silly hen does. In the second story, they will enjoy following her around in the rain, kneeling beneath a sheep, and playing in a puddle. These cheerful books make good read-alouds and the brief texts are appropriate for early readers.-Shelley Woods, Boston Public Library, MA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
