Children's Picture Books

  • Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes, by Mem Fox, illus. by Helen Oxenbury (Harcourt)
  • A Couple of Boys Have the Best Week Ever, Marla Frazee (Harcourt)
(Note the three titles by Harcourt--have I mentioned the brilliance of Allyn Johnston, now head of S&S imprint Beach Lane Books?)

Love the Book Shelf Tree. Fun, Alice! Very clever visual statement. Did you design that and take the pic?

Hard to believe it's that listy time of year already. Thanks for the titles for some excellent winter reading and studying. (And great "tree" photo!)
