There's More-- Much More

Sue Alexander. Gulliver Books, $12.95 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-15-200605-1

Squirrel leads Sherri on a tour of spring, helping her fill her basket with flower buds, wild strawberries and other offerings from nature. When her basket is full, she is encouraged to discover less-tangible pleasures as wellthe smells, sounds and feelings that signify and accompany spring. Brewster's delicate pastel watercolors paint a gentle, pastoral scene. Along with Alexander's fanciful text, they compose a lyrical paean to spring that will appeal to readers with a taste for the idyllic and romantic. But others may find its sweetness a trifle cloying. Ages 4-8. (October)
