The urban landscape will never look the same again. As Stephen T. Johnson demonstrates in a series of strikingly realistic pastels and watercolors, a simple sawhorse can contain the letter "A" — while lampposts alongside a highway can form a row of elegant, soaring Ys. A 1996 Caldecott Honor book,...
How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World
Illus. in full color. An apple pie is easy to make...if the market is open. But if the market is closed, the world becomes your grocery store. This deliciously silly recipe for apple pie takes readers around the globe to gather ingredients. First hop a steamboat to Italy for the finest semolina wheat....
Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs
Once upon a time, there were three hungry Dinosaurs: Papa Dinosaur, Mama Dinosaur . . . and a Dinosaur who happened to be visiting from Norway.
One day--for no particular reason--they decided to tidy up their house, make the beds, and prepare pudding of varying temperatures. And then--for...
This is a simple and sweet beginning number book counting down from 10 to 1 and then going to bed. I am not crazy about the artwork, but the painting of the 10 toes was beautiful. I’m not sure what it was, but it didn’t work for me personally. I think this is great for very young children, but it was way to...

The Apple Pie That Papa Baked
When I was in first grade, (forty years ago!), I would borrow a Virginia Lee Burton book, Life Story, from my school library so often that the librarian gave me the book at the end of the school year. I still have that book.
So when my son and I were at our local library recently, this book immediately...
I would recommend this book for the primary grades, second through third grade. I would categorize this book as modern fantasy.
This is a great book to introduce before fall. It does a phenomenal job at showing the beautiful colors of the leaves, and reinforcing the changes that nature goes...
How Do Dinosaurs Learn to Read?
This extremely little short book (only 6 pages!!!) is written in the same style as Jane Yolen & Mark Teague's other dinosaur book collaborations together, such as HOW DO DINOSAURS SAY GOOD NIGHT? and HOW DO DINOSAURS GET WELL SOON? The book was created as a promotional item to teach kids to have good...
Two sisters observe their apple tree through the seasons in this charming picture-book for younger children, delighting in the robin's nest in its branches, admiring its soft pink blossoms and growing fruit, and playing in its welcome shade. When fall comes, and the apples are ready for picking, the...
Fall has come, the wind is gusting, and Leaf Man is on the move. Is he drifting east, over the marsh and ducks and geese? Or is he heading west, above the orchards, prairie meadows, and spotted cows? No one's quite sure, but this much is certain: A Leaf Man's got to go where the wind blows.
