        "Mouse Paint" and "Name That Dog"

The Children's Book Review

Three wonderful books for children and especially for those who buy books for children are there for the taking.

"Mouse Paint" by Ellen Stoll Walsh, $4.99 (HMH, publisher) is as cute a childrens book as has come along in some time. In English and Spanish,  "Mouse Paint" tells the story through poems of three little mice who discover 3 jars of paint and the rest of it is pure enjoyment and edification. MUST HAVE

"Name That Dog" by Peggy Archer with illustrations by Stephanie Buscema (Penguin, $16.99) is an adorable books that goes thru the alphabet for the reader from A to Z with all kinds of nifty names for dogs of all types. Chewy and Daisy and Thor and Zipper and Yo Yo - all get a full  page as does Puddle and Jingles. Imaginative, inventive, interesting reading and looking.

 "The Famous Nini" by Mary Nethery illustrated by John Manders (HMH, publisher, $17.00, 32 pages) is the charming story that is mostly true about how a plain white cat in the  1890s in Venice was befriended by a café owner. Nini became a celebrity cat and charmed all types of people. This is a charming MUST READ!
