KIRKUS REVIEW

 Caregivers and young children getting ready for their first day care experience will enjoy this exuberant, action-filled look at an interracial group of preschoolers having a great day of play. The bouncy, brief, rhyming text is just right for reading aloud- -``Your legs are busy dancing, jumping, busy running, busy pumping''--while accompanying full-color photographs show many common preschool activities: storytime, building with blocks, show- and-tell, painting, lunch, naps. There are no tearful good-byes, fights, or tantrums here, just a lot of laughing, absorbed kids. Snapshots of the participants are superimposed over children's artwork in a lively design. The effect is childlike and appealing, certain to soothe newcomers to the day care scene. (Picture book. 3-6)
