Monkeyfish has adopted a new, all-purpose adjective:
"Can you walk a little further, kiddo?"
"No. I'm too honky."
"How was your day?"
"It was honky."
"You did a great job!"
"I'm a very honky girl."
Tad Hills: Duck and Goose
Obviously people don't want to share, they have to learn to share. The distinction is what keeps this book from sticky sweetness. The illustrations are simple and engaging, and it's funny enough to keep a parent from rotating it to the high shelf. (****)
James Marshall: George and Martha
This is the most charming children's book I've read in a long time. Actually, it's a compilation, and it has a great format: short stories in groups of five, so at bedtime you can read as much or as little as you like. (*****)
