PreSchool-Grade 2?The photo of a welcome mat on the title page opens the world of signs to youngsters. The familiar octagon-shaped STOP, railroad crossings, fire-boxes symbols, and pictorial shop signs are among the examples included. The simple text offers a brief description of, or the purpose of, each sharply reproduced, full-color sign. For example, photos of a police precinct and a fire station are accompanied by the statement, "Signs tell you where to go if you need help and where you can be of help." The last entry, a poster advertising "Free Kittens," concludes, "And sometimes, a sign tells you where to find a friend." Tana Hoban's I Read Symbols (Greenwillow, 1983) features 27 traffic and road symbols photographed in full color, but has no printed text. Beginning readers will enjoy Klove's book and have the satisfaction of decoding the words. The book would also be useful in discussions of community helpers and community awareness. Creative teachers and librarians will find limitless possibilities for incorporating this title into their curricula.?Patricia Mahoney Brown, Benjamin Franklin Elementary School, Kenmore, NY
