Children's Literature - Joan Carris
Strong binding and heavy, glossy paper make this an attractive piece of non-fiction for the picture-book crowd, yet the overall presentation of information is just average. Solid, but not special in any way, as the pictures are solid, but the layout, rather ho-hum. When the author focuses on one topic, the text is good, even gently humorous-a real plus. But given the competition in non-fiction today-and the price of this book-I'd say it's too uneven to place near the top of the heap.
