Auping, Michael, Francesco Clemente. From counting the planets to calculating the difference in diameters, and measuring axis angles, graphing according to distance from the Sun, length of year, circumference or diameter, working with billions and trillions which, by the way, do not have the same value in every country , countless math concepts can be introduced and developed as we use this book. As children begin to study and explore the Solar System at school, Children of the Sun will be an invaluable personal resource for information, understanding and as a visual aid for a project or as a model for students to construct their own version of the tunnel through space.

Its usefulness and appeal extended to high school and college students as well as to teachers. By the way Preschoolers will delight in this fun, repetitious rhyme with adorable frog characters. Watch as one by one, they hop off their speckled log to one very cool ending! Priscilla Burris's distinctive frog characters put a new spin on a favorite preschool song. Count-and-Sing books introduce preschoolers to math concepts in an interactive and engaging way.

Each page features glittery foil that's engaging and so much fun! Chrysanthemum Big Book 07 Item No. But on the first day of school, Chrysanthemum begins to suspect that her name is far less than perfect, especially when her class dissolves into giggles upon hearing her name read aloud. That evening, Chrysanthemum's parents try to piece her self-esteem back together again with comfort food and a night filled "with hugs, kisses, and Parcheesi. Chrysanthemum wilts. Pretty soon the girls are making playground threats to "pluck" Chrysanthemum and "smell her.

He also has great compassion for parents, offering several adult-humor jokes for anxious mommies and daddies. On the surface, the finale is overly tidy and the coincidences unbelievable. But in the end, what sustains Chrysanthemum, as well as this story, is the steadfast love and support of her family. And because of this, the closure is ultimately convincing and utterly comforting. Ages 4 to 8 --Gail Hudson --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. She is proud of her musical name until kindergarten, when she finds herself in a world of strange new names such as Sue, Bill, Max, Sam, and Joe--in short really short a world of ordinary monikers.

That wouldn't be so bad if the others--like Victoria--hadn't made a mean-spirited game of tormenting her, sending her home in tears to be comforted with cuddles and Parcheesi. Wisely, Chrysanthemum's concerned and loving parents try not to interfere, but what can't be put right by them is dealt with by lucky chance. The class learns that their popular music teacher not only has a whopper of a name herself--Delphinium--but also plans to name her expected baby by the prettiest name she has heard, Chrysanthemum.

The charming mouse with her delicate little face seems just right for her name. The range of expression and emotion Henkes conveys in his pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are "absolutely perfect. This sensitive story will strike a chord with young children, particularly those who also have difficult or unfamiliar names. Fortunately, a charismatic music teacher whose name happens to be Delphinium makes flower names a new fad. The ending here is preposterously tidy, contributing to the humor of a warmhearted story that celebrates the security of a happy family while gently satirizing its members.

Henkes's language and humor are impeccably fresh, his cozy illustrations sensitive and funny, his little asides to adults an unobtrusive delight. Another winner from this perceptive artist. Colors of Us, The 07 Item No. A perfect way to enjoy Holt favorites with many children at once! Seven-year-old Lena wants to use brown paint to paint a picture of herself. She and her mother take a walk, and Lena learns that brown comes in many different shades. From School Library Journal PreSchool-Grade 2 Lena's mother is an artist, so she knows whereof she speaks when she insists that there are many different shades of brown.

The two take a walk through their neighborhood by way of illustration, and the friends and relatives they meet along the way aptly reinforce Mom's contention. Their skin colors are compared to honey, peanut butter, pizza crust, ginger, peaches, chocolate, and more, conjuring up delicious and beautiful comparisons for every tint. Katz's pencil-and-gouache pictures joyously convey the range of human pigmentation. Positive and useful. From Booklist Lena discovers that she and her friends and neighbors are all beautiful shades of brown.

Mom says she could eat me up," says Lena. Then she sees everyone else in terms of delicious foods: Mom is the color of French toast. Lena's friend Sonia is the color of creamy peanut butter. Isabella is chocolate brown like the cupcakes they had for her birthday. Lena's best friend, Jo-Jin, is the color of honey. Katz wrote and illustrated the story in affirmation of her adopted Guatemalan daughter and her friends, and the diversity that surrounds them. The message is heavy, but it's made palatable by the loving words and the brightly colored, lively illustrations, which are a combination of collage, gouache, and colored pencil.

The pictures of Lena and her friends and city neighbors celebrate the delicious colors of the individual people, all brown, and each one different. Hazel Rochman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From Kirkus Reviews This vibrant, thoughtful book from Katz Over the Moon, continues her tribute to her adopted daughter, Lena, born in Guatemala. I am the color of cinnamon. Pellegrino, the color of pizza crust, golden brown. Five Speckled Frogs 16 Item No. But something is making them jump right back in the water.

Sing along with paired text and music as you count backward from five to find out why. This hardcover library bound book comes with CD and online music access. From Publishers Weekly Most slips several important morals--and considerable wit--into this entertaining barnyard tale, which centers on a cow that says "Oink" rather than "Moo. The cow is despondent, until one day she hears a friendly "Moo.

The two decide to teach each other the appropriate sound to make, and persevere even when the other animals jeer at them. In the end, the cow and the pig can both "moo" and "oink"--and get the last laugh, since the other creatures can only make one sound. Very young readers will love the silly animal laughs and the story's repetition.

Older readers will appreciate the humor, and will absorb such subtle messages as the importance of helping others, even if they are different; of rising above the cruelty of others; and of sticking to a difficult task until it is mastered. That's a lot for one picture book to accomplish. Ages Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc. From School Library Journal PreSchool-Grade A simple, sensitive story that lends itself to creative dramatization, participation, and self-expression.

A cow and a pig are laughed at because they aren't like the other farm animals. Through friendship and determination, they turn the situation around, and the story ends on a high note with both animals being different in a positive way. Since many words, such as "moo" and "oink," are capitalized and repeated throughout, both memory and word recognition skills are strengthened. One single large-print sentence appears on the top of each page. Children will especially like the pages showing the many different farm animals with their corresponding word-balloon sounds. Most's cartoonlike drawings in vivid, colorfully blended Pantone markers support the mood and the message of the story.

A read-aloud that can easily motivate class discussion. Review "[A] delightfully silly picture book with a not-so-silly message. Pure fun. Young readers will love the silly animal laughs. He's in for a big surprise when he finds them! What will he do to sort them out? Die-cut holes in each page hold clues to what follows, with lots of scope for imitation and expression. He has rolled and wrapped and dyed his hair. He has dipped it and sprayed it and made it, well, perfect. He is ready to celebrate Crazy Hair Day at school.

But when Stanley saunters up to the classroom, he learns, to his horror, that Crazy Hair Day is. To make matters worse, today is School Picture Day, and everyone is expected to line up for the class photo! Though trying to be good, George is still very curious and takes a swim in the ocean, escapes from jail, and goes for a flying ride on a bunch of balloons.

This treasured classic is where it all began for the curious, loveable monkey and is a must have for any children's book collection. From Publishers Weekly This is a pop-up version of the favorite title about the inquisitive monkey who unintentionally wreaks havoc on an entire city just by poking into things.

By opening a page or yanking the right tabs, readers can watch George put on the yellow hat the act that leads to his capture , get rescued from his attempt at flying, and teeter on the telephone lines. The firefighting sequence when George accidentally calls the fire department is action-packed, and the final pop-ups, of the monkey with his balloons, are inspired. For modern readers, George's kidnapping may seem severe.

Captain Pug: The Dog Who Sailed the Seas

But this is a grand adventure in any format, and pop-ups make the still-curious monkey fly. Five Little Ducks 16 Item No. Counting backward from five is fun when you follow these fluffly babies as they wander away from Mama Duck…uh oh! Now George is curious about numbers.

Dinosaurs with horns on their heads or spikes down their backs. Dinosaurs with long, long necks and long, long tails. From Publishers Weekly Barton's economical book does not scrimp on details or ebullient hues.

In colors straight out of a crayon box he provides children with a genuine "first" dinosaur book. The endpapers provide a vivid glossary of dinosaurs, with names and phonetic pronunciations underneath each picture. And then the sweet text: "A long time ago there were dinosaurs. There were dinosaurs with horns and dinosaurs with spikes. There were fierce dinosaurs and scared dinosaurs.

His illustrations capture the plasticity and vividness of children's own artwork, without patronizing or making fun of his young audience. More than Gibbons' Dinosaurs Holiday, or Aliki's My Visit to the Dinosaurs Crowell, , Barton conveys the primordial sense of excitement that draws children to these beasts. Despite the illustrations' simplicity, Barton's dinosaurs' expressions are not mammalian smiles; they have a saurian quality all their own.

The endpapers identify the creatures by scientific name and pronunciation. Barton wisely keeps his text simple, describing dinosaurs only by size and physical features "There were dinosaurs with sails on their backs, and dinosaurs with hard bony heads" , letting his drawings portray who owned which horns, teeth, tail, and spikes. This superb introduction for the very young shares the excitement of dinosaurs with its audience, without tangling their attention spans in boring details.

Imaginatively and with a masterful use of color, shape and composition, Bryon Barton brings to life a unique and endearing vision of what the world may have looked like once upon a time. A long time ago there was dinosaurs. Imaginatively and with a masterful use of color, shape and composition, Byron Barton brings to life unique and endearing vision of what the world may have looked like once upona time.

This terrific and suspenseful read-aloud picture book about friendship, sharing, and cookies can also be used to introduce basic math concepts to young children.

Dry Bones - big book 09 Item No. Ingenious die-cut holes on every page help us to recognize and identify the different parts of the body and how they join up. Review 'The leg bone's connected to the thigh bone The cut outs on each page help to identify the body part, gradually building up a skeletal shape at the end of the book. The final page teaches the scientific names for the major bones in the body. A glossary at the end provides interesting facts about each food. This appetizing alphabet book shows fruits and vegetables so juicy and alive, you'll wish they could jump off the page and into your mouth.

Even vegetable haters will find it hard to resist the vibrantly colored collage illustrations, which make each item look fascinating and appealing. Long a favorite picture book, this title is now available in a smaller board book edition, just right for introducing toddlers to the mysteries of endive, kiwifruit and papaya. Booklist called the original "bright, bold Each turn of the page reveals a mouth-watering arrangement of foods: Indian corn, jalapeno, jicama, kumquat, kiwifruit and kohlrabi.

The words are shown in capital and lowercase letters set in bold type for easy reading. At the end of the book, Ehlert provides a detailed glossary that includes pronunciation, botanical information, the origin and history of the particular plant and occasional mythological references, with a small watercolor picture to remind the reader of what the plant looks like. Ehlert's glorious watercolor collages are lively and enticing; as in her Growing Vegetable Soup , she presents the plant world in an appealing and easily accessible manner.

Both parents and children will be encouraged to sample exotic new foods at mealtime. A board-book version of Ehlert's bright, bold alphabet book of fruits and vegetables, this is smaller than the original, but almost identical in content. Since the shape of the book remains the same, the layout and pictures are intact. The glossary is gone, but it will not be missed at this age level. The brilliant colors look even more vibrant on the glossy, laminated pages, though the illustrations lose some of their graphic punch when reduced in size.

The Psychology Shelf

Still, a well-designed book for toddlers intrigued by parsnips, potatoes, peas, peppers, pumpkins, and the like. Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to the Board book edition. Review "Ehlert's eye-catching alphabet book splashes exuberant colors across each page. Empty Pot, The 07 Item No. Now, in a big book format ideal for Demi's lavish art, this classic favorite can be shared with a whole group of children at once! This is a story about a boy who loves flowers but is unable to grow one in the emperor's contest. Demi's exquisite art and beautifully simple text show how Ping's seeming failure is turned around in this satisfying tale of honesty rewarded.

From School Library Journal Grade When the Chinese emperor proclaims that his successor will be the child who grows the most beautiful flowers from the seeds the emperor distributes, Ping is overjoyed. Like the emperor, he loves flowers and anything he plants bursts into bloom. But the emperor's seed will not grow, despite months of loving care, and Ping goes before the emperor carrying only his empty pot. The emperor ignores the beautiful blossoms brought by the other children and chooses Ping, revealing that the seeds he handed out had been cooked and could not grow.

This simple story with its clear moral is illustrated with beautiful paintings. Each page contains a single picture, shaped like a stiff, rounded, paper fan and framed in celadon brocade that subtly changes pattern from one spread to the next. Isometric perspective, traditional Chinese architecture, and landscape motifs are combined with Demi's fine line and lively children and animals. While all the landscapes featuring the emperor and the other children are in brilliant red, gold, and purple, the scenes involving Ping alone are predominantly beige and delicate green.

Ping is almost always shown as a solitary figure in contrast to the busy groups of running, smiling children, reinforcing theportrait of him as a quieter, more contemplative person whose values make him a worthy heir to the emperor. A beautifully crafted book that will be enjoyed as much for the richness of its illustrations as for the simplicity of its story. Review When the Chinese Emperor announces an unusual test to choose an heir--the child who raises the best flowers from a seed given by the Emperor will be his successor--Ping, unaccountably, is unable to get his seed to sprout.

A lovely story, well told and most attractively presented. Kirkus Reviews, pointer A beautifully crafted book that will be enjoyed as much for the richness of its illustrations as the simplicity of its story.

Nancy teaches her family how to be fancy, too. Then following Nancy's lead, the fancied-up family heads for a festive night out at the local pizzeria. O'Connor, the author of the Nina, Nina Ballerina stories, delivers a delightful story of dress-up and cozy family love, with a charming protagonist who enjoys, and enjoys sharing, glamour.

Nancy's perky narrative, in short, simple sentences, incorporates some "fancy" vocabulary for kids to absorb stupendous, posh , along with a sense of the rewards of a family doing things together.

Includes bird guide. Finding a planet that is spoiled and neglected, the little men fly away, one by one. Luckily, by the end of this much-loved counting song, the world becomes a better place to visit - and the five little men may even have had something to do with it! Review Five Little Men come to visit Earth from Outer Space, but finding it spoiled and neglected, they fly away, one by one. Luckily, by the end of this much-loved counting song, the world becomes a much better place to visit. Die-cut windows reveal glimpses of what spacemen observe as they fly around the world.

Nursery World There cannot be anyone working in early years who is not aware of this popular number rhyme. Having it presented in book form, especially when it is as attractive as this, is a huge bonus. Children easily learn the poem off by heart and are then able to read the book for themselves! This builds self-esteem and confidence in emergent readers. How wonderful to be able to pick up a book that you feel you know really well.

The book itself is beautifully illustrated. The characters of the aliens just look at the expressions on their faces are cleverly drawn - and we are also given an excellent insight into why 'one man flew away'. Look at the way that the earth has been portrayed in each of the double-page spreads and you will soon see that there is more to this book than first meets the eye. Pollution, traffic jams and the destruction of the rain forests are just some of the reasons why the little men in the flying saucer did not feel that it was a good idea to visit the Earth.

The final page of this book shoes a far more optimistic view, with illustrations of wind farms and children planting trees. This is not just a book about the little aliens, it also sends some very powerful messages about conservation. EYE --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition. The pansies, tulips, daffodils, geraniums, and daisies are lovingly planted in a window box, and the candles on the cake are lighted--just as Mom walks in the door to find her daughter, her husband, and her birthday surprise.

An urban African-American girl and her father buy plants, potting soil, and a window box at the supermarket, ride the bus to their apartment, and put together a colorful gift for the child's mother. Rhyming verse carries the brief story, while wonderful, warm, full-color illustrations present scenes from novel angles, and depict a loving family with a sense of intimacy, sincerity, and joy.

A reassuring choice for reading aloud. From Booklist Ages From grocery cart to checkout stand, from bus to third-floor walk-up, an excited little girl totes home a heavy armload of flowering plants. A garden box--for you. The garden's progress from pots to planter is seen from several startling perspectives--from the little girl's lap, from the base of a staircase, from directly overhead, from street level.

Prereaders can trace the floral motif, repeated in the child's tights, the bus passenger's dress, the birthday cake, and the plate, or they can discover such hidden treats as the girl's reflection in the bus mirror. Almost as a bonus, one splendid close-up of the blooms is accompanied by verse identifying five common flowers. This title succeeds both as an introduction to the pleasures of gardening, and as a picture of a family, African American in this case, in which gifts are fashioned by loving hands. Elizabeth Bush --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. Review "An intimate family portrait.

From Publishers Weekly Presented in blocks of brilliant colors, the multihued train in this Caldecott Honor book undertakes a dazzling journey before disappearing from the final page. Ages 2-up. Trundling down the track goes a typical freight train, made beautiful by its bright colours, from the red guard's van through to the black tender and steam engine. Bold and clear, the colours stand out, until the train gathers speed and they are all whirled together as it hurtles through tunnels, over bridges, through night and day until, as trains do, it disappears. Nothing is said, nothing needs to be said; it's just a very satisfying experience.

And a good introduction to colours, too. Each rail wagon is a bright colour green cattle truck, purple fruit van , which start to blur as the engine speeds through tunnels and into the night. Very stylish. The brightly coloured trucks steam along and as they gather speed, travelling through tunnels, past cities and over bridges, the colours blend until finally the train disappears. Few words are needed as the pictures speak for themselves. Encourage your child to use his imagination to tell stories based on the book. Simple and amazingly effective. It is the striking colours of each carriage that createes a sense of excitment and movement as the train picks up speed and passes through tunnels, past cities, across bridges, into darkness and back into daylight, finally disappearing from view leaving only a thin trail of steam.

Originally published in the United States in , it remains a great way of introducing young readers to colours, but especially the way that they merge like a film fast-forwarding. Lacking any narrative, it displays the excitement of a high speed locomotive rushing past our eyes, as we ponder where such a dazzling machine is heading. A barrier breaker, this. The book combines simplicity with wonder, boldness with soft edges, and tranquility with excitement. It was due to all of these characteristics and many others that this children's book received the Caldecott Medal in The colors are infectious and the range of textures used is very appealing.

Some of the illustrations are clean and straight lined, while others show action and movement through blurred and smudged edges. I really think that this makes the reader feel as if they are moving along with the train and seeing what the train is seeing. I like that the different cars represent different colors, which allows the children to connect colors to the matching words.

I think that the book's features are most appropriate for very young readers and will definitely spark an interest in books. The book is available in hardcover, paperback, and more recently, board book format. It would be a great addition to any young child's book collection! The colors of the train are clear, but it is the motion of the train that dazzled me. The illustrations get you so close-up to a freight train - you can see the rivets!

  • The illustration of the train in motion is a thing of beauty. This book is so much fun. This is a perfect beginner's guide to the mystery of metamorphosis. A caterpillar comes to school in a jar. The class watches the caterpillar each day as it grows and changes. Soon, it disappears into a hard shell called a chrysalis. Then the chrysalis breaks, and a beautiful butterfly flies out of the jar! Although the drama of metamorphosis has been documented with greater detail in other titles, this presentation stands out because of its classroom setting. The process is seen through the children's eyes as they experience the excitement of observing the wiggly caterpillar, watch it molt, change into a chrysalis, endure the endless waiting, and stare in wonder as a Painted Lady butterfly emerges and dries its wings.

    The closing pages show the class at the window watching the insect pause on a flower before flying away to begin the life cycle once again. Pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations create a cheerful setting similar in style to those found in Miriam Cohen's books about classroom events. Close-ups show the stages of transformation as captions wend along plant leaves and stems reminiscent of a caterpillar crawling.

    A small collection of butterflies commonly found in most parts of the U. An inviting book that young children can relate to and one that teachers will find valuable to support nature-study projects.? Diane Nunn, Richard E. Here we go! Move yourself From Head to Toe I can do it! That's what kids will say when they wiggle, stomp, thump, and bend across the pages of this book. Laughter and squeals of delight will abound as boys and girls and their elders, too! From Publishers Weekly As the artist's collages emulate animal movements, children will "eagerly clap, stomp, kick and wriggle their way through these pages," said PW.

    Animals and multiethnic children illustrate various body movements on large, double-page spreads. A giraffe bends its neck, a monkey waves its arms, etc. The repetitive text has the animal stating the movement and asking, "Can you do it? There is no story? A nice addition to a toddler storytime, but it may get lost as it's cataloged in Carle's signature strong collages are put to good use in this book about movement. In each two-page spread, a child is paired with an animal, and kids are invited to make the same movement as the duo.

    Usually, the movement is one that comes naturally to the animals--for instance, an elephant stomps its feet, and so does a girl with braids; a gorilla thumps its chest, and so does a young boy. Sometimes the connection is more tenuous, such as the alligator wiggling its hips. The oversize art set against expanses of white will intrigue young children, who will enjoy both seeing the art and doing their own movements. The book will work well in story hours: a bit of wiggling and thumping will make a pleasurable break in the listening.

    Most libraries will want to shelve this with picture books. Ilene Cooper --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. Can you do it? If readers participate in the gestures shown on every page, they'll get something of a work-out, for the analogies are good: foot-stomping elephants, clapping seals, and shoulder-hunching buffalo are enticingly imitatable. The book's large size and bold, brightly colored animals make it ideal for story hours.

    Unusual for Carle--and highlighted by the emphasis on action--is the stiffness of the collages: Neither children nor animals convey a sense of motion, but appear locked into place. Just as the little old woman is about to take him from the oven, he slips away and runs out the door past a cow, a horse, a group of threshers, mowers, etc. All follow in hot pursuit until the gingerbread boy meets up with a wily fox, and "at last and at last he went the way of every single gingerbread boy that ever came out of an oven.

    He was all gone! Of the eight editions of this well-known story now in print, this hilarious version is the most delectable. Children will follow along breathlessly. Peter Kovner provides an engaging narration. The actual story narration is preceded by a verbal description of the first page, helping pre-readers know where to begin. The voices for the various animals and characters are silly and expressive.

    The story is accompanied by fluid background music that supplements the telling nicely. Sound effects are utilized throughout the story. For example, chase scenes are accompanied by the sound of running feet. Side one of the tape includes page-turn signals that sound like a flute trilling. At times the signal sounds similar to the background music. On side two, the story is told uninterrupted. This book and tape set [ISBN ] will be a useful addition for public and school libraries.

    One day, a man exhausts himself trying to chop down a giant kapok tree. When a little girl and her mother read a story about a frog that grows bigger and bigger and bigger, they decide to watch some real frogs growing. Armed with a bucket, they head to a nearby pond and scoop up some of the "gray jelly stuff" floating on top.

    Over the next week or so, the spawn, now in a fish tank at home, develop into tadpoles, and then frogs. When the frogs start hopping onto stones so they can breathe air, it's time to return them to the pond. Vivian French's simple, amusing text in a handprinted-style typeface infuses life, humor, and plenty of personality into this environmentally sound, scientifically accurate introduction to frog metamorphosis.

    The girl's view of her evolving friends "There were feathery things on their heads, and I could see their eyes" blends seamlessly with the explanatory text "The feathery things are called gills, and they're what underwater animals use for breathing". Illustrated by the talented Alison Bartlett, this terrifically appealing picture book features color-drenched double-page spreads with big, childlike, anatomically correct paintings. French and Bartlett have written and illustrated many well-loved books for children, including several other vibrant team efforts, including Oliver's Fruit Salad and Oliver's Vegetables.

    kids books grade 2 perky the wandering piggy in england illustrated in full color Manual

    After a mother and daughter read a story about a frog that gets bigger and bigger, Mom suggests further study. Off they go to collect frog spawn in small quantity from a man-made pond, lest the dwindling frog population be further endangered and then watch the transformation and return the little frogs to the home pond.

    Spirited splashes of bright acrylics stretch and focus the enterprise to illustrate the developmental stages of a frog as the diminutive zoologist nurtures her cluster with Mom providing support when needed. Though the illustrations may not present the minute, scientific detail required in a field guide, they are just right for a first encounter with tadpole mysteries.

    The text presents all of the essential tips in such a lively manner that readers will want to become involved. Various factoids in smaller type appear throughout the adventure to ensure a successful experience. Though youngsters fascinated by frogs may be drawn to this text on their own, it will make a most rewarding read-together or read-aloud to a class. A hopping-good collaboration. From Kirkus Reviews A little girl and her mom go down to the pond to collect frog spawn in this picture book science title, which shows and tells step-by-step how eggs hatch into tadpoles and tadpoles grow to frogs.

    French Not Again, Anna, , etc. The author is careful to provide a forward and careful directions, noting frogs are endangered and urging frog-lovers to take only a little spawn from man-made ponds. She encourages nature observers to return frogs to the wild. The illustrator uses bright colors and a flat, primitive style to show mother and daughter: people have dots for eyes, and triangles for noses. Tadpoles, when they hatch however, are painted with precise detail, so the young viewer can see eyes, tails, gills, bumps for limbs, and legs.

    The author concludes with an index and a note that every year she and her daughter collected frog spawn. Colorful and informative. The necessary tools are pictured and labeled, as are the seeds green bean, pea, corn, zucchini squash, and carrot. Then the real gardening happens.

    In the end? A recipe for vegetable soup tops it all off! From Publishers Weekly The title says everything the book contains. First, there is the idea, then the actual work: tools are employed for planting seeds that grow first into sprouts, then into plants and then vegetables. The process involves water, weeding, digging up and washing; finally, there is the reward of cooking the vegetables and, yes, eating the soupthe end of the chain, at least this year.

    The book provides a healthy dose of completely digestible information on growing and nurturing living things; it's also a zesty introduction to vivid, abstract art. Both Ehlert's illustrations and her basic instructions shed light and color on the simple pleasures of gardening. Intensely colored graphics capture the complete growing process from seed to cooking pot, with the focus on the plants. The unseen narrator describes the process of growing vegetable soup, from preparing the tools and digging holes for the seeds to weeding plants; picking vegetables; washing, chopping, and cooking themand finally enjoying the homemade soup while planning to grow more next year.

    It's a fresh presentation of the gardening cycle with a joyful conclusion, and the added attraction of an easy and tasty recipe for vegetable soup on the flyleaf. A book to help nourish healthy readers. Here Are My Hands features children of many different backgrounds and invites young readers to respond creatively as they learn the parts of the body.

    From Publishers Weekly winning collaboration, which portrays assorted body parts and their uses. These are expressive and simple, and include children of various races and both sexes. Even though the featured part is sometimes lost in the gutter of the book, this is an enjoyable offering that should find its way into toddler story hours, nursery schools, and many children's hands.

    Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Lib. Review [With] bright colors, simple but evocative illustrations and a clear succinct text, this is just right for the youngest when they are learning to describe themselves. I love the donkey braying 'hee-haw! What did you see? I saw a black cat Looking at me. If you give him a muffin, he'll want some jam to go with it. When he's eaten all your muffins, he'll want to go to the store to get some more muffin mix.

    Readers will follow a young boy and his voracious visitor through a series of antlered antics: jam reveries and puppet shows and big messes. It all makes perfect sense, really, once you stop to think about it. What moose wouldn't want to borrow a sweater when it's cold outside? And why shouldn't the loose button on the sweater remind him of his grandmother? Bond's cleverly detailed, witty illustrations perfectly complement Numeroff's deadpan style.

    Through just a few deft words and brush strokes, the reader gets a real sense of the unique personalities of the two characters. Children will relate easily to the full-circle reasoning of the story, while picking up the concept of cause and effect. The moral of the story? Keep plenty of muffin mix and blackberry jam in your cupboard. You never know who may drop by. Great read aloud, ages 4 to 8 --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. From Publishers Weekly In this sequel to If You Give a Mouse a Cookie , the complexities that can follow a simple act of kindness are played out with the same rampant silliness as in the previous book.

    The dilemma here is of a different dimension--a moose, after all, will almost always be a bigger problem than a mouse--but the collaborators maintain the same jolly mood. And what happens when you give a moose a muffin? He asks for jam, of course, and when he's finished eating all the muffins, he'll want you to make more. That entails a trip to the store. Of course the moose would like to go, but he may need to borrow a sweater; he might notice a button is loose, in which case he'll require a needle and thread.

    Numeroff and Bond have another clear winner--the drawings of the goofy moose sashaying around the house as his small host struggles to keep up with his demands make for great fun. From School Library Journal PreSchool-Grade From the first toss of a muffin to the final behind-the-couch scene in which the day's activities culminate in a messy array and the story comes full circle, readers gladly follow a moose and a young boy in this lively tale.

    Much as she did in If You Give a Mouse a Cookie HarperCollins, , Numeroff presents the energetic sequence of events in stream-of-consciousness fashion. Here the action principally involves putting on a puppet show, from the creation of sock puppets and scenery through cleanup time, making this title more cohesive than its predecessor.

    An added dimension this time is the mother, who figures in several illustrations but not in the text, blithely oblivious to all the goings-on. The text provides just the right springboard for Bond's distinct, pen-and-ink and watercolor drawings. The moose is a riot. He is at once dainty and exuberant with a heartwarming, ever-smiling face. Even when covered antler to hoof with paint, he looks lovable enough to take home. Librarians will have trouble keeping this book on the shelf. In this hilarious sequel to If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, the young host is again run ragged by a surprise guest.

    Young readers will delight in the comic complications that follow when a little boy entertains a gregarious moose. This edition is the large-print paperback version. This book is a great first introduction to Mouse, the star of the If You Give series and a perennial favorite among children.

    And with its spare, rhythmic text and circular tale, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is perfect for beginning readers and story time! If a hungry little mouse shows up on your doorstep, you might want to give him a cookie. And if you give him a cookie, he'll ask for a glass of milk. He'll want to look in a mirror to make sure he doesn't have a milk mustache, and then he'll ask for a pair of scissors to give himself a trim Supports the Common Core State Standards. Each 7-inch-tall mouse has movable arms and legs, removable denim overalls with a hole for the tail, and polka-dot boxers beneath!

    You may want to keep the cookie away from this soft mouse because, as you know, "If you give a mouse a cookie, he's going to ask for a glass of milk. When you give him the milk, he'll probably ask you for a straw. Great read aloud, ages 4 to 8 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    The consequences of giving a cookie to this energetic mouse run the young host ragged, but young readers will come away smiling at the antics that tumble like dominoes through the pages of this delightful picture book. Teachers can now share this favorite, mega-selling story with their classes in the forever-popular Big Book format. Here, a little girl is the patient hostess to a demanding piglet, whose myriad requests lead them from the kitchen table to the bathtub to the backyard. Along the way, the endearing porker puts on a pair of tap shoes, gets her picture taken balancing on top of the living room furniture, prepares a stack of mail to send to her friends, and builds and decorates a tree house.

    Preschoolers and beginning readers will enjoy spotting the objects mentioned in the story. Beginning with the cover illustration of the piglet daintily perched on a windowsill, Bond has once again created an adorable character that expresses the text perfectly. The humor and quick pace of Numeroff's engaging narrative make this book an excellent choice for reading aloud.

    A surefire crowd-pleaser. Following the same speculative logic that made If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and If You Give a Moose a Muffin so popular, this winsome picture book shows what happens when a girl gives the little pig on her windowsill a plate of pancakes. One thing leads to another: pancakes to syrup, syrup to stickiness, stickiness to a bath, a bath to a rubber duck, the duck to homesickness for the pig's farm, homesickness to packing for the trip, packing to finding tap shoes, tap shoes to performing a dance, the dance to taking photos--and eventually to another plate of pancakes.

    The wild gyrations of the plot will delight children as much as the clean, orderly lines and clear, gentle color of the artwork. Expect many requests for this one, from parents, teachers, and children. Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. From Kirkus Reviews The familiar circular formula employing a cookie-eating, milk-guzzling mouse and muffin-eating moose now showcases a pancake-eating pig who, as readers may have come to expect, might be in need of some maple syrup.
