Just Wonderful Children's Books
From all kinds of publishers big and small,
for all kinds of children – big and small, for all kinds of
tastes – come just wonderful children’s books, classics and
others bound to become cherished tomes.
“The Little Mermaid” by Hans Christian
Andersen & Lisbeth Zwerger (Penguin Young Readers Group,
$16.99) is a “must have for any child” or the child within
you. The combo of Zwerger, one of the most acclaimed of
illustrators and Andersen, who could spin a fairytale like
no one else – is just over the top. Andersen said that “The
Little Mermaid” was the only one of his works that affected
him while he was writing it. That “affecting” quality still
remains for all the readers of this remarkable story.
Winnie-the-Pooh’s “Colors” and Winnie-the-Pooh’s
“1.2.3.” inspired by A.A. Milne with illustrations after the
style of Ernest Shepard (Dutton, $6.99) in sturdy and
beautiful renditions – are just two more wonderful creations
for gift giving for enchanting childhood reading
“Two at the Zoo” by Danna Smith
illustrated by Valeria Petrone (Clarion Books, $16.00) from
1 black bear to 10 hairy warthogs is a book with a bounce
for even the youngest of readers and listeners.
And finally there is an ecologically
friendly book “We Are Extremely Good Recyclers” (Dial Books
for Younger Readers, $16.99). The book has been printed in
an environmentally friendly way and pushes the recycle
button very well for every reader.
