Emma's Vacation Board Book

David M. McPhail. Dutton Books, $6.99 (24pp) ISBN 978-0-525-47108-0

The little bear heroine of Fix-It and Emma's Pet takes off with her parents for a little R&R in Emma's Vacation by David McPhail. Soft, glowing watercolors contrast the hectic sightseeing of her parents with the down-to-earth Emma's idea of a good time-wading in a brook, hiking, picking berries-in this gently humorous story.
