Our roundup of travel-related New England books in the Jan. 31, 2010, Travel section might have left the erroneous impression that regional publishers concentrated solely on grown-ups in 2009. Not so--the astute Commonwealth Books in Beverly has a line of children's books and launched several delightful titles for young readers last year. The ever-wry Sage Stossel (whose cartoons often brighten our day in the Globe) checks in with a find-the-animals book called On the Loose in Boston, in which Franklin Park Zoo animals pop up in the darndest places. In Hello, Boston, a board book for beginning readers, Martha Day Zschock whimsically follows a sightseeing duckling around town, while the same conceit works with a baby gull in Hello, Cape Cod. The same author also penned and painted the flight of a chickadee around the Pine Tree State in an earlier book, Journey Around Maine from A to Z. It's never too soon to start grooming young readers ... and young travelers.
