It all started with a sneeze. A seed fell on a worm, the worm got mad and kicked a coconut tree, a coconut booped a turtle and so it went! This is a story of the misadventures caused by a small sneeze. It's lots of fun and one of our favorites.
As the days grow shorter, this gentle book is a lovely reminder of how day turns to night and that all creatures and people need rest. A mother and child watch from a hillside as the sun slowly sets. They watch the busy squirrel head for her nest to sleep. As the animals around them slowly quiet and return home, the mother and child walk home together to rest as well. This is a great bedtime book for calming down at the end of the day.
This strikingly illustrated book is a great introduction to the leaves that we will be seeing all over the ground this fall. Written in simple, clear language, children are introduced to the tree names of a few common leaves. We enjoy this book because it is a joyous celebration of fall and a great companion to trips outside to play in the leaves.
