Sure knowledge of what three and four year olds enjoy characterizes all of Charlotte Steiner's books and this is one of her most successful. A gay tale, with illustrations in full color by the author, a humorous story of how Rolly, Dolly, Trolly, Molly, Lolly, Wolly, Polly and Jolly (small children love the repeat sound in names like these) plan to make a basket for their mother's birthday. They have a supply of paint, but get their ideas for colors from nature. Lolly spills ink on hers and has to make it black, and Jolly was too procrastinating to have hers done in time, but Mrs. Sunny had an extra surprise when the unpainted egg broke and a yellow chick stepped out. Paper and board binding.
