Description

A question scritches and scratches at the back of Emma's throat. Emma is a curious kid. She loves to ask questions,Äîand she loves the silly answers that her grandmother always gives. But now Emma has a very important question, one that she is bursting to ask, one that scritches and scratches at the back of her throat. Her grandmother is sick and has to stay in the hospital. Emma wonders if Grandma will still be able to read to her kindergarten; if she will still make up funny stories over bagels on Wednesdays; if she will still be able to watch her after school. But mostly Emma wonders if Grandma is going to die. Emma,Äôs Question helps families to answer the question that all kids face at one time or another. Geared toward young children, the story uses gentle humor and simple explanations to describe what is happening to Grandma in the hospital.

Publisher: International Step by Step Association ISBN: 9781601950192

Matthew wanted only one thing on Earth: a dog. He lived in a children's home, and they weren't allowed to have a real dog. The toy dog he got for Christmas was broken; the other animals he tried out as pets didn't live up to his expectations. He never ever thought about wanting a Mother or a Father-but one day, when a couple comes to adopt him-he decides to keep an open mind... Matěj si z celého srdce přál jedinou věc. Mít pejska. Bydlel v dětském domově, kam opravdoví pejsci nesměli. Dostal sice plySového pejska k vánocům, byl ale rozbitý. Matěj se pokusil chovat jiná zvířátka, to vSak nebylo ono. Nikdy nemyslel na to, Ye by chtěl mámu nebo tátu. AY jeden den, kdyY ho pán s paní přiSli adoptovat, rozhodl se, Ye to zkusí...

Il habite dans une maison d'accueil où il n'est pas permis d'avoir un chien. Le chien en peluche qu'il a reçu pour Noël est déjà en morceaux. Les autres animaux favoris qu'il a reçus n'ont jamais fait l'affaire. Il n'a jamais songé à l'idée d'avoir des parents. Mais un jour, quand un couple se présente pour l'adopter, il commence à y songer…

Ale pewnego dnia, kiedy przyjechało małżeństwo, żeby go adoptować, zdecydował się skorzystać z tej szansy... Matthew wanted only one thing on Earth: a dog.
