Going to Bed

Nadine Bernard Westcott. Joy Street Books, $4.95 (16pp) ISBN 978-0-316-93132-8

Two slim volumes depict the morning and evening routines of a little boy who appears to be three or four. A very independent and self-reliant toddler he is, tooable to dress and undress himself and pick up all his toys. Westcott's illustrations are charming, but her text is so minimal that it might suit a board book format. All in all, this pair represents a good idea but is a slightly uncomfortable fit in terms of age appropriateness. The books may appeal to parents and children crossing these particular hurdles. Ages 1-5. (May)
