PreSchool-This well-chosen anthology of previously published stories, poems, and songs will delight babies and toddlers. Each selection fills one or two double-page spreads while exploring what fascinates this age group most: animals, colors, games, and family interactions. Included are such noted authors and illustrators as Catherine and Laurence Anholt, Lucy Cousins, Shirley Hughes, Jan Ormerod, and Helen Oxenbury. The collection contains a nice mix of traditional pieces, such as "Humpty Dumpty" and "Old Mother Hubbard," and contemporary choices, e.g., Flora McDonnell's "I Love Animals" and Nick Sharratt's "The Green Queen." The language flows beautifully and the colors are bright. The variety of styles of artwork, done primarily in watercolors and acrylics, adds greatly to the book's appeal, while judicious use of white space and borders provides continuity. Combined with Jan Ormerod's to Baby with Love (Lothrop, 1994), this volume would be useful for story times and one-on-one sharing.

Ages 1^-3. This colorful anthology for toddlers presents stories and rhymes, including a Pippo story from Helen Oxenbury, two pages of "Farm animals and pet animals" by Lucy Cousins, John Burningham's "cluck baa," and three nursery rhymes illustrated by Michael Foreman. Mainly English in origin, the individual selections are well chosen for the intended audience, though the wide disparity in styles of illustration makes for some incongruity from one turn of the page to the next. Libraries may want to have this available, however, as an introduction to some good writers and illustrators for young children. Carolyn Phelan
