Sky Above, Earth Below

Joanna Cotler, Author HarperCollins Publishers $14.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-06-021365-7
Cotler's spare text and boldly colored cutout pictures present a child's view of what can be seen from an airplane. Some of her images may be too sophisticated for little ones: ``Earth below. / Rivers run. / Sky above. / White clouds blanket. / Earth below. / Spiky trees.'' Other descriptions are more visual: (``Mountains are little green hats. / Towns are toys. / Fields are patchwork.'') While these graphics are visually impressive, both text and art are perhaps too impressionistic--and minimalist in their approach--to satisfy the book's intended audience. Ages 2-5. (Sept.)
