Reviewed with Elaine Greenstein's One Little Seed.
PreS-Gr. 1. There are many books that cover this territory: how a lamb's wool becomes a sweater; the way a flower grows from a seed. But these two compact volumes are amazingly simple and artistically captivating. lamb manages to tell the whole story with only a few words a page: a lamb lives on a farm; wool is cut, cleaned and combed; it is spun into yarn, dipped in dye, and rolled into balls; finally, it is knit into mittens. Seed, has a similar approach, but uses occasional rhyme to brighten the text: "shoots unfurl / sprouts uncurl." Young children will have no problem understanding both processes, which are illustrated by spot-on artwork that fills up the small pages. Kids will immediately be drawn by the cover art; the framed jacket painting of a sleeping lamb covered with curlicues of white wool is especially fetching. Greenstein uses thickly applied colors outlined in black in spreads featuring children involved in the pleasurable work that goes into planting and wool working, and her up-close perspectives give a sense of immediacy to the texts. Parents, librarians, and teachers will find myriad ways to use these. Ilene Cooper
