Using a charming combination of poetry and prose, author Judy Young explains the bedtime habits of some common North American animals, including moles, moose, and beavers. Young readers will learn not only where certain animals make their beds but also how and why they sleep as they do. Each animal is introduced with a rhythmic singsong-y, tongue-twisting poem guaranteed to bring smiles and encourage reader participation. The accompanying expository text includes information about the animal's unique sleeping habits. Finally, at book's end, the reader is gently guided back to a soft cozy bed of her own.
From acclaimed U.S. Children's Poet Laureate J. Patrick Lewis comes a delightful exploration of the wildlife easily found in our backyards and along the seashore. Simple rhymes and riddles are used to help the youngest of readers identify our wildlife neighbors, including birds, small mammals, and insects.
In poetry that winds and wends like a creek through a farmer's field, we journey through one lovely day in Buttercup's life. Whether she is ruminating on the mud beneath her feet or the moon and the stars in the blue-black sky, she draws us deep into her rich and wonderful world. Carolyn Beck spent her summers in fields and meadows. She spends as much time as she can at her cottage in the Muskokas. This is the second book she has worked on with her sister, Andrea. Carolyn lives in Toronto, Ontario. Andrea Beck, creator of the Elliot Moose series, loves animals. She had a beagle named Toby whose black spots reminded her of cow patches. She wishes all cows lived Buttercup's life. Andrea lives in Unionville, Ontario. She created this book using acrylic paint on watercolor paper.
Follow the animals, two by two, as they board Noah's ark. Young readers will be captivated by the classic Bible story and delightful illustrations.
Comienza con el pie derecho! Unete a los animales con el retozo divertido de pies: corriendo, saltando, brincando, y luego descansando, justo como lo hacen los bichos y las criaturas que figuran en Kimberly Hutmacher, Patas, garras, manos, y pies. Acompananos en este sueno a un viaje emocionante desde la manana hasta la noche usando las manos y los pies justo como las ardillas, monos, ratas, aranas, ranas, pinguinos, elefantes, leones, canguros, pandas, y aguilas. Viaja a la selva exuberante, a la sabana africana, al interior australiano, y a la region congelada de la antartica. Finalmente, mientras el sol baja, acurrucate bajo las cobijas y mientras dormitas recordaras a los animales jugando, inspirado por las ilustraciones imaginativas de Sherry Rogers. Despues de todo, hasta los animales salvajes necesitan algun tiempo para descansar despues de un dia de juego rapido con los pies!
Guess what happens when cows eat grass? Naturally.
Mmm-mm! Forest animals squeak, tweet, slurp, yip and chomp over the sweet, plump fruit of a wild blackberry bush. But what happens when a bear arrives to take part in the feast? Young children will enjoy following the story by making the animal sounds, and the chaos that strikes upon the bear's arrival will surely bring on the laughter. The cumulative, rhyming text makes for a great read-aloud.
