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