PreS–The adorable Mimi (an unidentified critter with a turnup snout) is a typical toddler learning to do things on her own. In Mimi Loves to Mimic, she tries to read like her mother but ends up napping, attempts to play the trumpet like her father even though her loud playing isn't quite like his, and makes her own version of Grandma's soup. In Mimi Says No, the youngster's independent streak continues as she learns a new favorite word. She says, “NO I'll dress myself!” even though her outfit ends up backwards, “NO I'll pour my own milk!” as it spreads all over the table, and more. The illustrations are simple yet colorful.–Sarah Polace, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Parma, OHα(c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
