 How nice to have it recognized that colanders and wooden spoons can be not only works of art but also the best of toys. The Rockwells enumerate the entrancing things two toddlers find in a kitchen cupboard--some are pretty big and heavy, but sturdy little people like things they can heft; the different shapes, colors, and feel of plastic cartons, a shiny tea kettle, a wok, a sieve, a rolling pin, and more are all celebrated--with the heroic presence of a Warhol soup can--in bright watercolors on clean white. In the final spread, where the tots are playing happily with the lot, their invitation to join in is enticing. Simple, refreshing, and an inspiration to parents who may not have realized what entertaining--and educational--resources they have in their kitchens. (Picture book. 1-4)
