PreS–Another lovely rhyming book for preschoolers about Noni and her friends, Dave the Dog, Coco the Cat, and the “ladies next door” (cows), who go to the beach for a day of frolicking and splashing. Simple, happy illustrations depict the friends’ day, against a backdrop of pale turquoise sea, sandy beige beaches, and the rosy pink of a sunset once the friends turn homewards. VERDICT A perfect blend of text and pictures makes this an outstanding offering for the youngest crowd.–Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA
