Parents and their little ones will enjoy seeing themselves in the simple, straightforward observations of the routines of a baby, including Baby’s first shaky steps, Baby’s much needed nap, the comfort of Baby’s bottle, a steamy bath, and a bedtime story.
Like Mem Fox’s Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes, this charming and joyful picture book by Polly Kanevsky and illustrated by Taeeun Yoo, the recipient of a previous New York Times Best Illustrated Award and an Ezra Jack Keats Award, will surely appeal to families with young children.
From the Hardcover edition.
This little Elephant really wants a friend. However, just like people, animals are not always nice. He has been taunted by the animals in the jungle everyday of his life. Will he survive or become someone=s dinner? Can he still believe in the power of friendship? The jungle is full of some strange characters. The animals will learn an important lesson about friendship and life along the way. Will he ever find a friend? Will he find the courage needed to become something great? Only time will tell.
It’s a long way from Elephant Island to Icetown,
but good friends will travel great distances to visit one another.
And so Elephant leaves home to see his penguin penpals—
Elephant has helped them build a hotel, and there will be a party
in his honor.
In Icetown, things don’t go as planned.
In fact, they don’t go smoothly at all.
But just like friends will travel far across the sea to be with one another,
good friends will also always help to make things right.
A story of friendship, a story of travel and global community, Come Back Soon will cheer anyone who has ever made a mistake and been forgiven.
In Elmer and the Hippos, the elephants are not happy. The hippos' river has dried up, and they have moved into the elephants' river. Some of the elephants don't like sharing. Elmer decides to investigate. He discovers the hippos' dry river could be fixed―but only if the hippos and the elephants drop their prejudices and work together.
