Appeared in Publishers Weekly on 2004-04-26:
Two reissues of Kate Chorao's nursery compendiums, The Baby's Bedtime Book and The Baby's Lap Book, pair the artist's soft spring-like watercolors with familiar rhymes. The first title contains comforting poems by William Blake, Robert Louis Stevenson and others, paired with nocturnal scenes; the second features classic nursery rhymes such as "Old King Cole" and "Georgie Porgie," alongside images of wide-eyed animal characters and impish children.
