KIRKUS REVIEW

Like many another picture-book child, ""Susi loved her blanket. She carried it everywhere she went."" What worries her now is that kindergarten is coming up and her mother warns that boys and girls don't take their ""blanket-friends' to school with them. Susi's solution, arrived at after days of doldrums, is to cut the blanket in half. . . again and again and again. . . so that on the first day of school, there it is in her pocket, ""a postage-stamp piece of blue, just the right size to go to school with Susi."" A neat solution if it works for her, but an obviously narrow prescription as a book. And Susi is less Everychild than no one in particular.
