All about Me

Debbie MacKinnon, Author, Anthea Sieveking, With Barron's Educational Series $11.95 (1p) ISBN 978-0-8120-6348-6
Toddlers seem to possess a neverending fascination with images of their contemporaries; here, they can relish the antics of a particularly photogenic cast of characters. Styled after the now-familiar manner of Dorling Kindersley (crisp photos against abundant white space), this chipper collaboration catalogues various body parts while asking simple, interactive questions: ``Can you stretch forward and touch your feet?''; ``What else can you do with your hands?'' As in her earlier photographic chronicles, Sieveking demonstrates a particular affinity for posing and shooting fledgling models: kids will be hard-pressed to pick favorites from this winsome, multiracial assemblage. A few instructional examples are presented also, as Ann wields her toothbrush (``Teeth need cleaning too''), and tub-dwellers Mark and Kelly explore the joys of suds. Gray's Anatomy for beginners, and a lot more fun. Ages 2-5. (Apr.)
