School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2--The author of A Summer Day (Greenwillow, 1988) now takes children on a late spring walk along a dappled woodland path, with full-color, crayoned, double-page spreads in which browns and greens predominate to set a restful tone. Black-outlined car toons show a red-headed boy and girl hiking with an older girl (or mother), who points out foreground closeups of trees, birds, insects, rabbits, frog ponds, etc. Beginning readers will en joy practicing their skills on the over size type of the rhyming captions,``On the trail./Cottontail.'' A final page pic tures and names 20 plants and animals, and invites readers to find them in the book--an activity youngsters enjoy-- especially as Florian has not named ev erything children might spot and name or question.--Ruth M.
