A Sock Is a Pocket for Your Toes: A Pocket Book Review


A cave is a pocket for a bear,
a breath is a pocket full of air.
A hat is a pocket for your hair,
and a seat is a pocket called a chair…

A Sock Is a Pocket for Your Toes: A Pocket Book is a whimsical pocket full of bells and balloons, ice cream and mud, giggles and hugs. Elizabeth Garton Scanlon’s delightful verse is captured in Robin Preiss Glasser’s energetic artwork, which follows four families through a busy day exploring the surprising ins and outs of the world’s pockets.

This special book will leave readers young and old with pockets full of joy!

Mallory’s World from A to Z

Mallory’s World from A to Z Review

What happens when a prize-winning poet and a dazzlingly gifted nine-year-old illustrator collaborate on a children’s book? Mallory’s World from A to Z is a collection of smart and appealing alphabet poems illustrated by the poet’s great niece, a blond-haired ball of energy and art student named Mallory. Mallory lives on a farm and the zoo is one of Ed’s favorite haunts, so many of the poems are about their favorite animals. Sometimes Ed worked from Mallory’s drawings, but usually Mallory drew from Ed’s poems. Inspired by poet laureate Richard Wilbur’s Opposites series, the mnemonic qualities of the poems and the whimsical illustrations will make this collection memorable for children and their parents and caregivers alike. Mallory and Ed would love for readers of all ages to enjoy Mallory from A to Z

Today at the Bluebird Cafe

Today at the Bluebird Cafe Review

It’s all-you-can-eat
at the Bluebird Café,
A grasshopper-katydid-cricket buffet,
with berries and snails
and a bluebottle fly,
a sip of the lake
and a bite of the sky.


A world of birds unfolds in twenty-two vivid poems that capture the unique personalities of birds from backyard blue jays to toucans and cockatoos. Come sweep through the sky with an eagle, compare table manners with a vulture, and mock a mockingbird — if you dare!

Debora Ruddell’s poems are funny and thoughtful, silly and sweet. Joan Rankin’s delightful pictures enchant the eye and tickle the funny bone. There is something for everyone who flies through the pages of this brilliantly birdbrained book.

The Marine Team

The Marine Team Review

Teach your children about our aquatic friends with this fun and educational book. Five sea creatures – a shark, turtle, seahorse, seal and whale – are explored through rhyme, pictures and pull-out cards. With two spreads dedicated to each creature, adults will be able to read the short playful rhyme on each spread to children and look at the bright illustrations to teach them about their habits and environment. Children will then be able to pop out the card animals from the perforated pages contained in a pocket at the back of the book and create 3D figures simply by folding and adding a few dabs of glue. The inside of the dust jacket is printed full color with a graphical representation of the creatures’ environment. Children have the option of using this as a backdrop to create a marine scene, and there are also accessories to make and add to the scene.

A Pizza the Size of the Sun

A Pizza the Size of the Sun Review

I’m making a pizza the size of the sun, a pizza that’s sure to weigh more than a ton, a pizza too massive to pick up and toss, a pizza resplendent with oceans of sauce.

I’m topping my pizza with mountains of cheese, with acres of peppers, pimentos, and peas, with mushrooms, tomatoes, and sausage galore, with every last olive they had at the store.

Here is a wondrously tasty–and always funny–collection of more than 100 poems for readers of every age. Meet Miss Misinformation and Gladiola Gloppe (andher Soup Shoppe), and delight in a backward poem, a poem that never ends, and scores of other poems to read and love. You won’t stop smiling!

I Saw Esau: The Schoolchild’s Pocket Book

I Saw Esau: The Schoolchild’s Pocket Book Review

“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.” That’s what children chant when they are being teased; it’s what their parents chanted, and probably their grandparents before them. Collected in this invaluable book are the wit and wisdom of generations of schoolchildren—more than 170 selections ranging from insults and riddles to jeers and jump-rope rhymes. With Iona Opie’s introduction and detailed notes and Maurice Sendak’s remarkable pictures—vignettes, sequences, and full-page paintings both wickedly funny and comically sad—it offers knowledge and entertainment to all who open it.

Reedle-ee
Rootle-ee
Vroom-pety BANG!

Young Farkle McBride is a musical genius: He plays the violin, the flute, the trombone, and the drums with incredible skill. But he’s never satisfied: Something is missing.
In his first book, actor and musician John Lithgow introduces a memorable character, a fickle yet lovable child prodigy who brings the sounds and rhythms of an orchestra to sprawling visual life. With a double gatefold showing the entire orchestra, this is the ultimate book for the music lover in all of us.
Deedle-ee

Doom-pety CLANG!
John Lithgow. Signed.
