Kindergarten-Grade 3-- Happy is the child fortunate enough to have a "Taylor's Place" to visit, where a craftsman welcomes the eager interest and participation of a child in whatever project is at hand. Tory, the little girl who visits elderly Taylor's workshop, watches him complete a weathervane for a neighbor and adds her own contribution, a hand-carved peachpit basket for a little wooden dog to carry around his neck. This warm, gentle story of affection across the generations is full of the rich tones and aromatic wood smells of the carpenter's shop, set in crisp, chilly autumn surroundings. Warm pastels evoke both the coziness of country interiors and the glories of a landscape ablaze with colored leaves. A book that will bring back happy memories for some readers, and provide a vicarious experience for those who lack a Taylor in their lives. --Joan McGrath, Education Centre Library, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
