I Went Walking
(by Sue Williams/illus. by Julie Vivas, Harcourt $10.95 Score:)

Reintroduced in a very large 10" square board book format, this is a BLUE CHIP animal and color identification book with repetitive lines. Because of its size it is heavy to handle, but otherwise still a fine read-aloud favorite of toddlers. 2 & up.
