One morning a little girl wakes up to find everything in life arranging itself into a math problem, and she must find her way out of the Math Curse!
A young Indian boy from Nipigon country in the Canadian wilderness carves a twelve-inch canoe with a kneeling Indian figure and frees it to undertake a journey to the Atlantic Ocean in his place. He must stay home and help his father, but yearns to learn about the world beyond his life in the village.
The importance of small things in a world dominated by great size is illustrated in this real-life story of a lighthouse on the shores of the Hudson River.
Every August, Henry, his parents, and his big dog Mudge go camping. This year they are going to Bear Lake. They will cook food over a campfire and sleep in a tent. Henry hopes he sees a deer or a raccoon. But he isn't sure he wants to see a bear. After they set up camp, Henry and Mudge explore the woods and enjoy the lake. Henry and his parents eat hot dogs for dinner while Mudge chews on a big log. That night, as they all look up in the sky, they see thousands of stars. And when they go to sleep, they dream happy dreams.
In January, there's a lot of snow on the ground. One day when Henry and his big dog Mudge go outside to play, they see a sign in a store window. It says: SNOWMAN CONTEST, SATURDAY AT THE PARK. Henry runs home to tell his dad. On Saturday, the park is filled with people building all kinds of fancy snowmen. There are many dogs there, too. While Mudge makes friends, Henry and his dad get to work. They will need to make a very unusual snowman to win this contest!
"cute, short and expensive"
Winner of the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album for Children, this high-energy production is foot-stomping fun. Tom Chapin's easy-going narration sets the tone for this story about Miles and his Swamp Band, whose music is in hot demand - from sharp-toothed alligators at an all-night ball where the band is earmarked to entertain and be the main course! Jazzy music plays throughout as Chapin both reads and sings this entertaining book.
