A top trio of books for younger readers caught our attention. All are worth yours.

Children’s Book Reviews

 “Ilama Ilama Time to Share” by Anna Dewdney (Viking, $17.99) is another in the acclaimed series. Readers cannot get too much of a good thing. The author lives in an old house in Vermont not that far from where the reviewer/authors live. The theme of this lively and comical and beautifully created tome is sharing and its challenges for children. “Ilama Ilama Time to Share” is not just another pretty children’s book, but a nuanced and sprightly effort.  GO FOR IT.

          “Dangerously Ever After”  by Dashka Slater illustrated by Valeria Docampo (Penguin Young Readers Group,  Ages 3-5, $16.99) and “Electric Ben”  by Robert Boyd (Penguin Young Readers Group, Ages 8 and up) are a dynamic duo as far as books for the young readers and those who read to them are concerned. Both beautifully illustrated, concisely edited, they have a tempo and pace that moves narrative and experience along in wondrous ways.  TOP DRAWER.
