PreSchool-These books help fill a need for simple, short, and graphically interesting stories for children not yet ready for full-length stories. The artwork is large, colorful, and well matched to the texts. One Smiling Sister, told in rhyme, introduces the numbers 1 to 10 through events and people in a preschooler's typical day at home and in school. Grumble-Rumble! follows a young kangaroo that skips breakfast to go out to play and is then frightened by what she thinks is a monster, only to learn that it is her empty stomach grumbling. In Ned's Rainbow, a little boy is sad when he can't touch the rainbow, so his clever mother paints one on his wall. Walsh's colorful rainbows on every page make the book lovely to look at, and the text is simple and realistic. Appealing characters and familiar settings and situations will make these titles popular with the preschool set.
