Ages 2-5. Five joyful concept books by gifted artist-writer Hughes--Bathwater's Hot
and When We Went to the Park
(1985) and Colors
and All Shapes and Sizes
(1986)--have been collected into one big, handsome volume that will give preschoolers hours of fun. In each story the same eager, curious child explores her world, at home and outside, and discovers all kinds of colors, shapes, sizes, numbers, sounds, and experiences. The simple rhyming text makes you savor the words, and each cheerful line-and-watercolor illustration tells a story to talk about. Even libraries that have some of the individual volumes may want to buy this large collection, which is unified by the characters, style, and setting. Hazel Rochman
