A sure sign of the glory of
spring is all the colorful, creative, carefully crafted children’s
books that are published. This year is no exception. There is a
bountiful amount to read, to savor, and to collect. The Penguin
Group leads the way with a bevy of beauties.
“Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad” by
David Soman and Jacky Davis ($16.99, ages 3-5) gives the spotlight to
Lulu in words and pictures as she get set for the Bug Squad to appear
for a play date. Winning prose and art work that sings.
“Madeline at the White House” by

enjoyment for little readers or those who read to them focusing as it
does on Madeline’s midnight sightseeing tour on a carpet of cherry
“The Loopy Coop Hens” by Janet
Morgan Stoeke ($16.99, ages 3-5) is a hilarious tale of three hens.
Punchy, pointed, poignant in a way, this is a charming book.
“Happy Easter, Peter (a pull out the
tab book) by Beatrix Potter ($7.99, ages 3-5) is interactive and just
wonderful. Peter Rabbit’s agenda is the delivering of colorful Easter
eggs to friends.
“The Pretty Pretty Bunny” by David
Horowitz ($12.99, ages 3-5) focuses on Narcissa whose claim is that of
the best looking bunny. A book with a story with a moral about what
beauty is all about. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
“Suki, the Very Loud Bunny” by
Carmela and Steven D’Amico ($16.99, ages 3-5) is all about a highly
adventurous bunny. She gets into big trouble in many ways because of her
big voice. A BEAUTIFUL BOOK
