Watch Us Play ($15.00; PLB $14.93; Mar. 1998; 24 pp.; 0-688-15606-1; PLB 0-688-15607-X): Two cuddly lion cubs take center stage in this charming work from Ford (Sunflower, 1995, etc.), who repeatedly selects just the right shot to advance the story. Children will immediately identify with the playful cubs who call to their parents: “Hey, Dad, look at me!” “Hey, Mom, look at me!” as they roll over, touch-toes, peek-a-boo, tease, tickle, tag, and take naps. The expressive full-color photographs are framed with a generous white border, making approachable for preschoolers this realm of tawny gold cubs. (Picture book. 3-6)
