A trio of favorite picture books are now available in board book editions. In Mary Had a Little Lamb by Sarah Josepha Hale released as a children's book in 1984, Tomie dePaola places the favorite nursery rhyme in a New England setting. His popular folk-art illustrations, several of them appearing here as wordless spreads, allow young readers to follow Mary and her lamb through their daily activities-especially at school.
