Book Descriptions

Harold and the Purple Crayon: One evening Harold decides to go for a walk in the moonlight. Armed only with an oversize purple crayon, young Harold draws himself a landscape full of wonder and excitement. Harold and his trusty crayon travel through woods and across seas and past dragons before returning to bed, safe and sound. Full of funny twists and surprises, this charming story shows just how far your imagination can take you.

Is Your Mama a Llama?: "She grazes on grass, and she likes to say, 'Moo!' I don't think that is what a llama would do." In this favorite, whimsical rhyming story, riddles help Lloyd the baby llama guess what kind of animal everyone's mama really is. But it's his friend Lyn the llama that finally leads Lloyd to the answer he most longs to hear. Is your mama a llama?

Petunia: When Roger Duvoisin first introduced children to his proud and silly goose, Petunia, in 1950, it was love at first sight. Those children have grown up, but Petunia is every bit as fresh and funny and muddled as the day she was born. In this, the first of the series of classic books featuring the silly goose, Petunia finds a book--and, deciding that if she owns a book she must be wise, dispenses hilariously mistaken advice to the other animals in the farmyard. With its gentle lesson and the kind of humor that kids love best, this new edition of a picture book classic will delight and inspire a whole new generation of readers.

The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear: How will Little Mouse stop the bear from eating his freshly picked, red ripe strawberry? This classic story is beloved for its humor, expressive illustrations, and surprise ending--pure read-aloud fun!

Inch by Inch: A small green inchworm is proud of his skill at measuring anything--a robin's tail, a flamingo's neck, a toucan's beak. Then one day a nightingale threatens to eat him if he cannot measure his song. Children will enjoy the clever inchworm's solution and delight in finding the tiny hero on every page.

Mama, Do You Love Me?:  In this classic, bestselling story of a child testing the limits of her independence, a mother reassures that a parent's love is unconditional and everlasting. This universal story is made all the more captivating by its unusual Arctic setting. Complemented by a detailed glossary, this tender story introduces young readers to a distinctively different culture and shows that the special love between parent and child transcends all boundaries of time and place.

Make Way for Ducklings: Mrs. Mallard was sure that the pond in the Boston Public Gardens would be a perfect place for her and her eight ducklings to live.  The problem was how to get them there through the busy streets of Boston.  But with a little help from the Boston police, Mrs. Mallard and Jack, Kack, Lack, Nack, Ouack, Pack, and Quack arrive safely at their new home.

The Little Red Hen: When the Little Red Hen asks a cat, dog, and mouse for help planting some wheat, she gets no takers: "‘Not I!’ said the cat. ‘Not I!’ said the dog. ‘Not I!’ said the mouse." They won’t water, cut, or grind the wheat... or help bake a cake with it, either. So in the end, the Little Red Hen eats the cake all by herself as well! Paul Galdone’s delightfully detailed ink and wash illustrations—packed with charming details—add plenty of sly humor to the well-loved story that not only offers a sage message, but also shows children what it takes to make a cake from the ground up!

Marshmallow: Oliver is a tabby cat who is always the center of attention. Marshmallow is a baby rabbit who moves into Oliver's home. At first Oliver does not welcome Marshmallow, but the little bunny's charms are impossible to resist. This is the true story of how Oliver and Marshmallow become friends.

Mr. Gumpy's Outing: Mr. Gumpy lives by a river. One sunny day he decides to take a ride in his small boat. It is such a perfect idea, for such a perfect summer day, that he soon has company: first the children, then the rabbit, the cat, the dog, the pig, the sheep, the chickens, and still others until-- Mr. Gumpy's outing comes to an inevitable but not unhappy, conclusion. "Come for a ride another day," says Mr. Gumpy at the book's end. And young readers will return again and again to this sprightly story with its clever, captivating illustrations that reflect the sunlit quality of a lazy summer afternoon.

A Pocket for Corduroy:  In this sequel to Corduroy, Lisa takes her toy bear to a Laundromat, where he goes on a soapy adventure!

Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed: As soon as they say good-night to Mama, the five little monkeys start to jump on their bed. Trouble lies ahead as, one by one, they fall off and hurt themselves. After the doctor issues a stern order--No more monkeys jumping on the bed!--they finally fall asleep.
