KIRKUS REVIEW

 The author of Nice Work, Little Wolf (p. 723) comes up with an appealing book for the youngest. A cheery tot, clad in just a diaper and a short red shirt, explains what happened after the wind blew his clothes off the line: ``A cat got my hat...Two baby llamas were in my pajamas,'' and so on. Not only are the different animals and articles introduced in text and illustrations, but the toddler demonstrates actions to accompany the rhymes; there's also a joke to top it off when the animals gather at the end: ``But the sun was so hot, I said, `Keep what you've got...I'm happy enough without all that stuff!' '' Simple, easily read pictures in soft bright colors make the perfect accompaniment. Just the thing for the toddlers' group. (Picture book. 1-5)
