Book 216: Animal Homes

Animal Homes, written by E. K. Davis, illustrated by Jane Goldsborough, Little Good Book, 1982.  Toddler, Preschool, Early Elementary.

This is not much to say about the text of this book, because there is not much text in the book.  That's fine, though, because what is there works quite well.

The illustrations, however, deserve paragraphs.  I will settle for sentences.  They are realistic, without being frightening.  They are soft, without being cute.  The animal faces are expressive -- especially the eyes -- without looking human.  Although the style is different, the illustrations of the animals remind me of Nancy Tafuri's work, which is always perfect.
