Let's Make Friends

Patrick Yee, Author Viking Children's Books $2.99 (26p) ISBN 978-0-670-85940-5
Chipper, childlike illustrations add character to this unassuming quartet of small board books. Placed against particularly vivid solid-color backgrounds, the crisply outlined portraits on these chunky books' spreads (12 to a book) depict an appealing diversity of familiar creatures and objects-cartoony lions and bears, for example, in Let's Make Friends, and a counting frame and rubber ducks in Let's Play. The subjects on some spreads are occasionally related (milk opposite ice cream in Let's Eat; an airplane facing a helicopter in Let's Go), while larger entries merit spreads all to themselves (whale, train, giraffe). Ages 1-4. (May)
