Say Goodnight

Helen Oxenbury. Little Simon, $6.95 (0pp) ISBN 978-0-02-769010-1

Spending any amount of time with these Big Board Books is akin to being in the middle of a school room full of toddlers. The oversize format and the large scale (the babies' faces are about fist-size) showcase Oxenbury's winsome, multiracial babes, who spill food on each other, sing together, play with adults, bounce on beds, clap hands and play with fingers or toes. Very lively fare. Ages 14. (August)
