PreS-"Today on Katie's farm-" a newborn calf takes its first wobbly steps; a young lamb nibbles her fingers, then takes milk from a bottle; and a little puppy opens its eyes for the first time. These episodes, for they are too brief to be considered stories, are related in short, evocative sentences. The language generates a sense of comfort and warmth, while simultaneously including enough tactile detail to engage youngsters. Lewis's trademark soft, yet realistic colored-pencil illustrations perfectly reflect the scenes described in the texts. Readers can almost feel the velvety softness of the calf's nose as Katie reaches out to touch it. The puppy is appealing and so carefully rendered that children will want to pet his warm little tummy. Both the lamb and calf entries include appropriate animal noises (always a big hit with this audience) and all three books contain some simple dialogue. A lush, rural landscape decorates the endpapers. These titles are short and simple enough to use at storytime, but their gentle nature suggests that they may be best appreciated one-on-one.-Piper L.
