Just Wonderful Children's Books

The Children's Book Review

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 experiences.

“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.
