Meghan McCarthy's Adventures Of Patty And The Big Red Bus (0375829393, $12.95) tells of Patty's visits to her big red bus, where her and her sister drive to far-off places--including the moon! Very simple, large-print writing makes Adventures Of Patty And The Big Red Bus an especially recommended easy reader for beginners. Maria Polushkin Robbins' Mother, Mother, I Want Another (0375835886, $14.95) revisits a bedtime classic, providing a newly illustrated format by Jon Goodell and the story of a baby mouse who makes an impossible demand. Nicholas Allan's Where Willy Went (0375830308, $15.95) features an unusual 'facts of life' story about a swimming sperm who wears goggles for the race. A fun story of fertilization tackles the problem of what happens ultimately to a lively sperm winner. Danny Tepper's Look Who's Talking! On The Farm (03-75831134, $7.99) lets youngsters lift the flaps to flap lips: die-cut holes and flaps may preclude library lending, but home readers will find this an engaging story. Lois Lenski's The Easter Rabbit's Parade (037582748X, $12.95) returns to print a classic Easter story of a rabbit and a barnyard getting ready for the big holiday. It's a happy Easter on the farm when a parade is planned in this whimsical story of celebration. Speaking of holidays, Susan Wojciechowski's A Fine St. Patrick's Day (0375823867, $15.95) requires good reading skills but excels in an unusual story of St. Patrick's Day and an annual village's celebrations. An annual town decorating contest involves two towns in competition until a strange arrives to tip the scales in a whimsical picture-book story.
