When Grandma sends her grandson a backpack, he can't wait to fill it with interesting things. His toy train fits just right. His bock and his big brother's baseball socks fit perfectly, too. And there's still room for more, including his teddy bear, his mother's keys, and the family cat! It's amazing what you can fit in a backpack if you really try. Eve Bunting's lively, rhyming picture book is perfect for reading aloud and is happily illustrated by Maryann Cocca-Leffler.

PreSchool-K?When Grandma sends her grandson a large backpack as a gift, she tells him to fill it with "important stuff." The boy does so joyfully, but he goes a bit overboard. Dad's glasses, Mom's keys, big brother's catcher's mitt?all get packed in the large blue pouch. Family members are dismayed about their missing items until the culprit is found. Saddened by his parents' lack of enthusiasm, the child seeks comfort with his father, who ends up putting his son inside the backpack for a ride. Youngsters will enjoy noting all the things that fit into the backpack and will delight in predicting that the boy may be getting himself into trouble. The rhyming text begs to be read aloud. Each double-page spread includes a framed illustration on the right, with the text and whimsical images of the objects on the left. The colorful artwork, done in gouache, colored pencils, and collage, complements the story, giving the book a playful tone. Pack this in your preschool-storytime bag.?Anne Knickerbocker, Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX
