Rey, Margaret

"I totally fell in love with this book. I've read the Curious George books hundreds of times, but I've never seen any of these. They're fun and have cheerful, silly illustrations that the kids will love. Everyone should read this one!" St. Francis (Pius X Library) Elementary School
From the author of the Curious George series comes this collection of four humorous and marvelously illustrated stories:
Tit for Tat concerns kindness to animals and portrays a place where horses ride in carriages drawn by men and women, fish catch humans, cows lasso cowboys, and dogs walk people.
Elizabite: Adventures of a Carnivorous Plant uses rhyming couplets to recount the humorous antics of a hungry plant in a botanist's laboratory.
Billy's Picture, a tale of art and individualism, tells of Billy the Bunny's attempts to paint a picture. Each of his friends has a different idea about how it should look and they all want to help. (co-written with Margret Rey)
Zebrology offers a wordless celebration of the common ground that lies beneath appearances.

The Big Snow and Other Stories
Hader, Berta And Elmer

"These stories, despite the seventy plus years since their inception, have stood the test of time and, with the lush illustrations, should still appeal to both parent and child. A treasure to keep on the shelf for kids and grandkids." Buffalo Public Schools
This compilation of Caldecott winners unites three wonderful children's picture books, written and illustrated by a gifted husband-and-wife duo. The stories combine imaginative color drawings with enchanting storytelling, and all three focus on wildlife ecology, depicting memorable scenes from the natural world.
The Big Snow takes place when the geese are headed south and the forest creatures put on their winter coats. When a blanket of snow covers the hills and valleys, the birds, squirrels, mice, and other animals gratefully gather the seeds, nuts, and other foods that the little old man and woman spread for them.
Cock-a-Doodle-Doo traces a little chick's journey from a duck farm to the big red barn, where the rooster's cry draws him across the wide meadow and its many dangers, from crows and raccoons to a marauding fox.
The Mighty Hunter is actually Little Brave Heart, who's reluctant to go to school until he encounters a prairie dog, wildcat, buffalo, and other animals that change his mind about the value of reading and writing.
"A wonderful collection of Caldecott Award-winning tales, perfect for a young reader who loves stories about animals. The illustrations are charming and bring the stories to life." Southeast Community College

The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories
Seuss
It's the literary equivalent of buried treasure! Seuss scholar/collector Charles D. Cohen has hunted down seven rarely seen stories by Dr. Seuss. Originally published in magazines between 1948 and 1959, they include "The Bear, the Rabbit, and the Zinniga-Zanniga " (about a rabbit who is saved from a bear with a single eyelash!); "Gustav the Goldfish" (an early, rhymed version of the Beginner Book A Fish Out of Water);  "Tadd and Todd" (a tale passed down via photocopy to generations of twins); "Steak for Supper" (about fantastic creatures who follow a boy home in anticipation of a steak dinner); "The Bippolo Seed" (in which a scheming feline leads an innocent duck to make a bad decision); "The Strange Shirt Spot" (the inspiration for the bathtub-ring scene in The Cat in the Hat Comes Back); and "The Great Henry McBride" (about a boy whose far-flung career fantasies are only bested by those of the real Dr. Seuss himself).

In an introduction to the collection, Cohen traces the history of these stories, which demonstrate an intentional and significant change that led to the writing style we associate with Dr. Seuss today.  Cohen also explores these stories' themes that recur in better-known Seuss stories (like the importance of the imagination, or the perils of greed).  With a color palette that has been enhanced beyond the limitations of the original magazines in which they appeared, this is a collection of stories that no Seuss fan (whether scholar or second-grader) will want to miss!
