All from Harcourt - Children's Books to cheer for

The Children's Book Review

All from Harcourt, all priced at $16.00, all worth giving to that favorite child or grandkid. Here's the lineup.

"Hurry Hurry" by Eve Bunting illustrated by Jeff Mack ($16.00) delightful accounts in words and pictures of a big day in the barnyard.

"I'm Going to Grandma's by Mary Ann Hoberman, illustrated by Tiphanie Beeke is a delightful, nostalgic, warm look at all the book's title conveys.

"With You Always ,Little Monday" by Genevieve Cote fuses the story of a mother's love with a world wide legend. The book begins with the words: "One summer, on a clear Monday night, the forest animals found a baby rabbit fast asleep in the moonlight . . . ." and from that point on the reader is hooked to read on and
look on in this fabulous book.

Comets, Stars, the Moon, and Mars," space poems and paintings by Douglas Florian who writes poetry, paints and star gazes in New York City where he lives with his wife and their five children. This book is simply spectacular containing nifty, neat and succinct poems and all kinds of winning illustrations. Even adults can learn a lot from highly appealing tome.

"Mary Poppins & Mary Poppins Comes Back" by P. L. Travers ($19.95) is a book housing the first two adventures of everyone's favorite - -Mary Poppins.
Beautiful in appearance, with illustrations by Mary Shepard, so pleasing in content, this is a keepsake for adults as well as children.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: "Satchel Paige, Don't Look Back" written by David A. Adler and Illustrated by Terry Widener (Harcourt Children's Books, $16.00, 32 pages) is geared to ages 5 to 8. But this is really a book for all ages and for gift giving or to retain as part of your sports library. "Satchel Paige may have been the best pitcher ever," the book begins and we are then there through his many baseball highlights in clear and concise prose and brilliant and appealing art.
