Betsy Lewin's Animal Snackers returns with cheerful new watercolors that serve up the rhymes from the 1980 edition as a delectable new entree. The volume covers everything from the anteater (""His snout is like a hose./ He just sucks ants up his nose"") to symbiotic tickbirds (""The rhino tolerates these guests/ because they rid him of his pests""). Even picky readers will likely return for seconds. .
