A Cache of Jewels: 6

Ruth Heller, Author Grosset & Dunlap $17.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-448-19211-6
In light verse and brightly colored pictures, Heller provides an introduction to a specialized part of speech, the collective noun. She lists and depicts more than 25, including such familiar terms as ""batch of bread'' and ``bunch of bananas,'' as well as more unusual phrases: ``gam of whales,'' ``muster of peacocks'' and ``parcel of penguins.'' The concept will stimulate the curiosity and imaginations of children with an ear for language. The illustrations, containing large, bold objects in simple yet striking compositions, ensure a visually inspiring exploration as well. Ages 4-8. (October)
