PreS-Gr. 1. Holm's creative, very simple introduction to colors and patterns shows a cheerful little girl, Zoe, modeling a variety of headgear. The relatively small trim size of the book will fit well in small hands, and the crisp illustrations set against a white background offer no distractions from the main idea. On each page, Zoe grins out from underneath a different kind of hat, including some downright silly ones. In one picture she wears a floppy, red Santa hat; in another, a striped bathing cap complete with flower; in a third, striped underwear, worn upside-down, of course. Brief captions in large, bold type explain the pictures. Children will particularly like the descriptions of the hat-colander ("Gray, spotted, dotted hat") and the underwear ("Stripes . . . Yikes!"). The kid-friendly clarity and humor make it clear that Holm has spent time with toddlers who like to dress up and put things on their heads. Indeed, the dedication is to a real-life Zoe. Diane Foote

PreSchool-K-Holm introduces readers to a redhead with an assorted hat collection. On each page, Zoe is seen from the shoulders up against a solid white background as she models a green-plaid tam, a witch's hat, an inverted colander, and even a pair of pink-and-blue striped underpants. The child's appeal grows with each picture, since the author/illustrator creates a variety of expressions to match the resourceful bent of her heroine. The spare text and bright colors are especially well suited to younger children, and older listeners may come up with their own imaginative games. Closing pages group the hats to allow three review quizzes of the concepts.
