ea. vol: unpaged. illus. (Begin-to-Learn Bks.). Bantam. Oct. 1985. PG $5.95. PreSchool-Grade 2 These four poorly executed books, adapted from the Walt Disney Fun-to-Learn Library, capitalize on the Disney name and characters. Disney characters illustrate concepts, the body and its functions and occupations, as well as tired old jokes. The texts range from uninspiring to awful, and the concepts are presented unclearly. All try to treat too much too briefly and too superficially. Both . . .Letters and Numbers and Colors, Shapes, and Sizes explain concepts that have been better presented numerous times before. All About People combines the disparate subjects of physiology and occupations, and treats neither of them well. Cartoon animal characters are interspersed randomly with people, creating confusion. The jokes in Words, Riddles, and Stories are stale, and "Cinderella" is condensed so much as to become meaningless. The other stories are versions of fables and have morals that hit readers over the head. As well as being condescending, these books presuppose a familiarity with the Disney characters in order to interpret the pictures and stories. Annette Curtis Klause, Montgomery County Libraries, Md.
