ea. vol: illus. by author. unpaged. CIP. Viking. 1987. PLB $4.95. PreS These three small picture books add little or nothing to the mushroom ing supply of books for the youngest library users. Their light-colored line drawings are mediocre. The first-per son narrations are simple, yet lifeless. My Baby-sitter features an afternoon of pleasant activites with a young woman and a little boy. The book does not point out any normal apprehensions that a child may have in the absence of a parent. The ending is abrupt, with the last page showing the mother suddenly home as the sitter is heading out the door. In My Potty Chair, a girl relates her mixed feelings about using her pot ty. She also talks about who does not use the potty. Strange illustrations point this out: the older sister sitting on a toilet; a cat in the litter box; and the dog lifting a leg on the bushes. The New Baby lightly touches upon the effect the infant has had on a preschooler who is now the older brother. The biggest dis appointment here is that the baby is re ferred to as ``it'' instead of ``he'' or ``she.'' These books only skim, and not very succcessfully, the surface of the topics they purport to address. Mari anne Pilla, Long Beach Pub . Lib . ,

These four books form a rather nice series of experience books for younger children. In My Baby-sitter, a boy tells of the fun he and his baby-sitter have while his mother is out shopping. The little boy in My Blanket explains how special Silkie, his blue blanket, is to him. In My Potty Chair, a girl matter-of-factly discusses the use of her potty chair, and in The New Baby, a child adjusts to having a new baby in the house. The appeal of these books is in their comforting subjects and in Young's vibrant pen-and-wash illustrationslike the books, they are simple, colorful and upbeat. Ages 2-5.
