Three for the Kids from Houghton Mifflin
There is “Sheep in a Jeep” by Nancy Shaw, “Gossie &
Friends” ($11.99 by Olivier Dunrea and the classic “Wee Willie Winkie”
($5.95) By Salley Mavor – all gifts to all of us from Houghton Mifflin
The Nancy Shaw book with lovable illustrations by Margot
Apple has unabridged and dramatic readings, lively music and read along
capability with or without page signals.
The Dunrea effort is a first flap book about a small,
yellow gosling who is fortunate enough to have many friends.
The Mavor gorgeously illustrated childhood classic is a
true page turner and proof that good things come in small packages.
All three books offer something different and something
special for the children or grand kids on your list.
