 Cork, Cats, and Carousel

Book Review

The Children's Book Review

Like beautiful flowers popping up all over in spring, children’s books, colorful and educational, moving and marvelous are also part of the scene.

Viking Penguin offers up for readers five and above “Cork & Fuzz” by Dori Chaconas illustrated by Lisa McCue ($13.99, 32 pages, sturdily bound. Cork is a short muskrat while Fuzz is a tall possum. They blend together making for super reading with terrific visuals for all the children among us.

“Cats” by Matthew Van Fleet with photos by Brian Stanton (Simon and Schuster, $16.99) is the cat book of all  cat books for toddlers showcasing 22 breeds of these favorite pets. Interactive curios plus a push button speaker reward all who com into contact with the playful “Cats.”    NOTABLE

“A Carousel Tale’ by Elisa Kleven (Tricycle Press, $15.99, 40 pages, ages 3 to 6) is all  about the adventures of Ernst, a young blue crocodile. Colorful, imaginative, absorbing reading – all of these are part of the reason why this book should be in the hands of all children – big and small.
