Book Review Cliches
Australia's Kids' Books of the Year 2006

Mainely Children's Books highlights some children's books with a Maine connection. These are new titles; don't forget about older ones like Robert McCloskey's colorful Burt Dow: Deep-Water Man, too.

I recommended the Scholastic/Weston Woods video of Burt Dow last fall, and want to call attention to another fine production by the same company:  the DVD of The Scrambled States of America. Like Laurie Keller's picture book, the adaptation is a fun and silly geography lesson.
