  MORE from Harcourt - Children's Books to cheer for

Book Review  


Lovely to look at, superb, enjoyable to the touch and all in all a delight to give, own, browse through, have on that special child's burgeoning bookshelf - - and all from Harcourt who knows how to do it right.

“Mary Poppins in the Kitchen” is another classic for all ages by P.L. Travers ($14.00, 80 pages) with special drawings by Mary Shepard. It is billed as a cookery book with a story and that it is. Just wonderful.

“Mary Poppins from A to Z” is another classic for all ages by P.L. Travers ($14.00)  with special drawings by Mary Shepard who illustrated Mary Poppins books for more than half a century and who passed away in 2000. As the title indicates, this is a book that goes through the alphabet – and it does so charmingly, intelligenty and with an educated eye.

For those  looking for a “pop-up” book there is “Charlie Chick” ($10.95)  by Nick Denchfield and Ant Parker for ages 0 to 3.  Enormous pop ups pop off the pages of this winning big book about a special chick.

"Bow-Wow Bugs a Bug" by Mark Newgarden and Megan Montague Cash ($12.95) beautifully illustrated, a kind of unreal or surreal doggie story without words but with a lot of adventure.  Mom, dad, grandpa, grandma - put this and the others here on your gift giving list - it's a winner.
