"100 Great Poems for Girls" and "100 Great Poems for Boys" and Other Timeless and Terrific Books for Kids of All Ages . . .

The Children's Book Review    

And the timeless and terrific books for kids of all ages keep coming!

"100 Great Poems for Girls"  edited by Celia Johnson and "100 Great Poems for Boys"  edited by Leslie Pockell  (Grand Central, both $12.99, trade paperback) are two nifty collections gender geared. And not just for kids. NOTABLE.

"Those Darn Squirrels and the Cat Next Door" by Adam Rubin illustrated by Daniel Salmieri (HMH, $16.99) is a delightful adventure tale of a cat and squirrels - artfully drawn, carefully crafted. Any youngster would have a ball having it read to them or reading it by themselves. MUST HAVE.

"Bubble Trouble":  by Margaret Mahy and Polly Dunbar is a a board book that pleases (HMH, only $7.99) and one that was voted “Best Picture Book” by the Boston Globe. It is all about silliness and how all the trouble started when little Mabel blew a bubble. DELIGHTFUL.

"Marta Speaks: Martha and Skits Out West"  based on the characters created by Susan Meddaugh (HMH) is another wondrous tome in the series. The appealing tome includers a wonderful story, illustrations that intrigue and lots to read. GO FOR IT.

"The Sisters 8 Book 7" by Lauren-Baratz-Logsted (HMH, $4.99) contains minimal art but maximum story that is a delight to read. The eight sisters are into it again and again bringing a perfect plot for any reader or for anyone being read to.  INTRIGUING.
