KIRKUS REVIEW

 One of five board books, the Newbery winner's illustration debut (the others: Everyday Children, Garden, Pets, and Town). Each surveys the child's domain in verse that's close to doggerel, like the impromptu chants of an articulate parent (``The Everyday House/plink-plinks in the rain;/in the snow/it is covered with white./The moon gives it moonlight,/the sun gives it sun,/and a family makes it all/just right''), captioning collages of flat, simplified forms cut from vibrantly colored paper. A minor effort, but the subjects and attractive graphics are sure to appeal. (Picture book. 0-3)
