One, Two, Buckle My Shoe

Marc Tolon Brown. Dutton Books, $5.95 (0pp) ISBN 978-0-525-44462-6

These fragile Marc Brown Play-Pops companion titles seem aimed at children who have outgrown chewing on their board books and advanced to a more respectful attitude toward them. A cast of white rabbits stars in One, Two --all of them acting out this familiar rhyme in crayon illustrations. Can You features various animals and children, most of them three-dimensional due to the pop-up format. Inset into a corner of each page are lucid drawings of the hand or body movements that may accompany the rhymes; the mood of each book is entirely cheerful. Ages 2-5. (May)
