|Baby's First Library : The Runaway Bunny, Big Red Barn,
||This tremendous trio of Margaret Wise
Brown's tried-and-true board books is virtually guaranteed to delight babies and toddlers.
The Runaway Bunny, illustrated by Clement Hurd, is a comforting testimony to a
parent's unconditional love and protection: "'If you run away,' said his mother, 'I
will run after you. For you are my little bunny.'"
walks a child through a hypnotically soothing bedtime ritual of naming familiar objects in
a room (and finding the little mouse that keeps popping up); and the melodic Big Red
Barn, with illustrations by Felicia Bond, is a colorful foray into farm life: "By
the big red barn / In the great green field, / There was a pink pig / Who was learning to
squeal." In the end, the barnyard animals are all asleep, and if you're lucky, your
favorite toddlers will be, too. A wonderful first-book collection..
