KIRKUS REVIEW

These delightful, action-filled "Big Board Books" show toddlers--black, white and Oriental--interacting with each other and care-givers of both sexes. A single line of rhyming text is just right for explaining the action. The text of "All Fall Down" goes: "Singing all together, running round and round, bouncy, bouncy, on the bed, all fall down. Oxenbury's illustrations in soft colors sweep across the double page. Her round and sturdy toddlers are expressive and individual. Toddlers will enjoy the little visual dramas: which dancing baby may lose his pants, which toddler is trying to take the cookie from his neighbor's tray, which baby is trying to comb her own hair, which baby sucks his thumb. Sturdy, glossy, these 8(apple)" square board books open flat for easy viewing. Excellent choices for independent browsing and reading aloud.
