PreSchool-Grade 1?Honey, I Love, the title poem from Greenfield's popular 1978 collection (HarperCollins), and On My Horse, a new poem, are filled with full-color illustrations featuring African Americans. The two simple stories describe a young girl's favorite summer activities and a boy's riding fantasy as he is led around on a gentle horse. The verses are simple, with flowing language and limited rhyme and repetition. Gilchrist's pictures fill the pages with large realistic portraits brimming with the warmth and pleasures of childhood. Their size and clarity make these books good candidates for toddler and preschool story hours as well as for one-on-one sharing.?Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
