The Baby's Bedtime Book

Kay Chorao. Dutton Books, $16.99 (64pp) ISBN 978-0-525-47327-5

Two reissues of Kate Chorao's nursery compendiums, The Baby's Bedtime Book and The Baby's Lap Book, pair the artist's soft spring-like watercolors with familiar rhymes. The first title contains comforting poems by William Blake, Robert Louis Stevenson and others, paired with nocturnal scenes; the second features classic nursery rhymes such as ""Old King Cole"" and ""Georgie Porgie,"" alongside images of wide-eyed animal characters and impish children.
