It's time for bed. But first, our little turtle needs to say goodnight to his animal friends. We follow him on a short adventure as he says goodnight, one-by-one, to his friend the sheep, bird, frog, dog, rabbit and lion. He brushes his teeth, gets a bedtime story of his own and drifts off to sleep.
This rhyming story, with lovable, brightly-colored animal friends, is sure to catch the attention of even the most wiggly children - and their parents.
The expression "Don't judge a book by its cover" applies to all creatures, especially caterpillars. Without taking the time to get to know her, Speckles the spider and Crumbs the cricket take an immediate dislike to Katy the caterpillar. In their eyes, Katy is just too ugly to befriend.
Fortunately, Annie the ant looks beyond Katy's stubby legs and green skin. What she sees is a beautiful friend. A miraculous transformation puts Speckles and Crumbs in their place and confirms the significance of respect for others. This delightful tale teaches readers that the cover of the book is much less important than what is on the inside. A bonus to this inspiring book is an introduction to the stages of a caterpillar’s life.
The miller Elmo and his son Mort have a problem—instead of standing up for what they know is right, they follow everyone else’s opinions. When a farmer complains that Elmo is overworking the donkey, Elmo and Mort mill the grain. When others complain that his prices are too high, Elmo reduces the price, even if he’s losing money. When a friend suggests Mort steal apples with him, Mort goes along with the plan.
Their trouble worsens when they take their donkey to sell at the market and listen to all the advice they hear along the way. By trying to please everyone, they end up pleasing no one and losing their donkey. This retelling of Aesop’s classic fable illustrates that the path to success means standing up for what is right.
Your child’s imagination will take flight when you read Red Rose and White Snow, by BobbiCat, the beautiful story of two princesses who are sisters, but delightfully different.
The story shows their differences and their likes and dislikes, but in the end there is one thing on which they both agree.
Follow the adventures of a twelve year old boy as he discovers a magical world of talking animals, dwarves, elves, hobbits, fairies, dragons, giants, mermaids, and many other mystical creatures. Follow his quest to become a great wizard as he meets Merlin's daughter and together they have many wonderous adventures in The Land Of Tomorrow.
