One normal summer day, Alice is sitting on the riverbank when a big, white, talking rabbit runs past. He pops into a big rabbit hole, and Alice follows him down, down, down into a strange and magical land. Alice has many exciting adventures in this extraordinary place called Wonderland. Here, anything can happen: All the animals talk, a deck of cards comes to life, and everything gets curiouser and curiouser. What other odd things are in store for Alice in Wonderland?
Cute, colorful, and non-controversial selections for a fun animal alphabet book. Oversized, so it will be a great book to read aloud to a group. I plan on letting my kinders classes tell me what they think the words are, based on context of the pictures, to help build their inferencing skills and vocabulary.
Illustrated with photographs, drawings, and charts, this book traces the history of the automobile, from the days of early experimenters, such as Nicholas Cugnot, through today, and discusses the role of the automobile in today's economy
It's pink, it's about ballerinas, and it fits in a little girl's hands well. As a children's librarian in an elementary school, I can tell you that for a 4 - 5 year old girl, the only things possibly better would be something with Barbie or princesses and kittens. Maybe purple.
As I started to read this book to see if I wanted to include it in our elementary library's collection, I did not expect to get caught up in its story. But I did! I read the book in one sitting, and I decided that this was a significant enough book that I would read it aloud to our 8 classes of 4th and 5th graders, whom had just read about Joseph Stalin during their history classes.
After reading chapters 1 - 5 aloud to the first group, I asked what they though about the story so far. One boy said, "I want to break THOSE guys' noses for taking the dad!" A girl immediately responded, "My heart is racing around in my chest!" Other groups of students have responded similarly. We have not completed the read-aloud yet, but I think this story will speak to these children long after history review questions have been written and graded --- and tossed or lost.
This was my favorite book in fourth grade. I remember the teacher reading it aloud to us after lunch. Caddie is one of the spunkiest, bravest redheaded girls in literature---more than even Pippi or Anne of Green Gables. I highly recommend Caddie Woodlawn.
A wonderful book with old-world charm. I remember seeing this book for the first time over 45 years ago on Captain Kangaroo, and I still have fun sharing it with my library full of elementary school children.
What do you want to be when you grow up? At the age of 10, 11, 12, or 13 could you possibly know exactly what career you will choose as an adult? Of course not! But these are the perfect ages for you to start discovering who you are, what you like to do, and what you can do best. The Career Ideas for Kids series takes advantage of this curiosity and shows you the many, diverse opportunities available to you. Highly motivational & just plain fun, each lighthearted volume is filled with delightful text and playful illustrations to engage you.
Interesting book. One review said it was like reading a Fellini movie, and I would agree. Each chapter is told in first person by a different resident of the building, and each one's reflection on a murder victiom (no one liked him), and the suspected murderer (no one can believe it). I have not yet finished the book, but look forward to grabbing those last 30 minutes this weekend.
