PreSchool-K-- An ABC book which goes through a preschooler's typical day in a day care center. At the start of the day, "Adam asks for applesauce" while his parents fix breakfast. In the colorful picture, lots of "A" words can be spotted, such as Dad's apron with an artichoke on it and sister's bib decorated with acorns. Each page is a delight as different children are pictured getting ready for and going to the day care center. Their day is lively and realistic, with all the activities lending themselves easily to this alphabet format. Children and teachers are of mixed gender and race, and their faces are delightfully expressive. Phillips includes a useful list of the objects and colors found in each picture. Some are obvious such as umbrella for the "U" page, but the upside-down bear is more difficult. The book is cleverly done, but is not too obscure for preschoolers to understand. It succeeds as an alphabet book, a game, a tool to reassure children about going to day care, and a mildly entertaining story. --Janet E. Fricker, Warminster Township Free Lib . , PA
