My Farm

Jane Conteh-Morgan, Author, Jane Conteh Morgan, Author Bantam Books for Young Readers $4.99 (1p) ISBN 978-0-553-09732-0
Conteh-Morgan's distinctive torn-paper artwork gives vitality to this quartet of My First board books. Multiracial casts are another plus. A zookeeper and farmer tend their respective flocks; a girl raises flowers (``Take them to someone you know,'' reads the commendably unselfish conclusion); and a family, including a rambunctious dog and cat, stands up to be counted. Clean white backgrounds set off the radiant colors of the compositions, while texts are suitably minimal. Ages 6 mos.-3 yrs. (June)
