The actor and his wife, Anne, launched a foundation providing $2.5 million to rehabilitate deteriorating playgrounds. "When my wife came up with this plan to help the playgrounds, I said to my wife, 'What can I do to help?' She said, 'Make a movie and get more money,' " Douglas said at Vine Street Elementary School. The Anne and Kirk Douglas Playground Grant will give up to $25,000 to schools that can get matching funds. PORK TENDERLOIN Small Fries &Kirwin 823-8066 Serving Fresh From The WoodGrittEveryday!

Here are some wonderful new picture books in which moms play pivotal roles: 'Don't Laugh Joe' Joe loves to laugh, to giggle, to guffaw. That's all well and good, except when he's supposed to be playing dead. For Joe is a possum, and his mom is worried that Joe won't be able to play dead when he needs to save his life. But in $15.95). Joe shows his mom that he can lick his laughter when he needs to. Author/artist Keiko Kasza provides a surprise ending that will delight young readers. Kasza's story is fast-moving and hilarious, while the bright watercolors add a further touch of humor. (Ages 3-7) 'Ma Dear's Aprons' David Earl always knows what day it is by the color of the apron his Ma Dear is wearing. Each day has its own apron: Monday is wash day, so she wears a blue apron, while Friday is cleaning day, so her apron is brown, etc. There's only one day without its apron — Sunday, when Ma Dear and her young son go to church. In "Ma Dear's Aprons" (Athe- neum, $16), Newbery Honor award-winning author Patricia McKissack draws on her own family memories to create an outstanding book that gives young readers a slice of turn-of-the-century history. McKissack's story makes it clear that David Earl and his Ma Dear had a hard life, but the author also highlights the intensely loving bond between the two that transcends the backbreaking daily work. The softly focused illustrations by Floyd Cooper, an award-winning children's book artist, are full of emotion. (Ages 3-7) The Seven Silly Eaters' When her first child was born, he was a picky eater, but Mrs. Peters didn't mind. Each day, she went to great trouble to fix his milk just the way he liked it. Then, another child was born, and then another, and another. Finally, there are seven children in all, each as picky as the other about their food. Mrs. Peters loves her children dearly, but her life is chaos. In "The Seven Silly Eaters" (Brown- deer Press, $15), author Mary Ann Hoberman uses snappy rhyme to tell what happens when the children try to surprise their exhausted mother by making a special meal just for her. Hoban's story is silly, but kids will love it. Parents, meanwhile, will roar at the illustrations by Maria Frazee, which show a mother and a house more and more out of control as Mrs. Peters takes the idea of child coddling to the extreme. The book's ending is satisfying without being pat. (Ages 4-8) Specialties^.
