"Take me somewhere -- to wide-open countryside.
Let me redden and blacken my tongue with berries and cherries.
Let me skip with a flip in a trip. Take me somewhere."

In "A Nest Full of Stars," James Berry will take you on a memorable trip through all the startling, humorous, sad, happy, painful, and joyful experiences of growing up. Here are birthdays and fireworks, quarrels and making up, and every sort of mood you can imagine. Here are the hills and valleys of friendships and family life. Here is a boy on a train, trying to make all the adults look at their watches. Here is a girl discovering the miracle of her hen's hidden nest of eggs and seeing it change into "a mighty nest full of stars." Most of all, here are poems that shake our senses and awaken us to the magic and mysteries all around.

Norris, Leslie

What Albert wants is to replace the precious gold medallion on a delicate gold chain that his mother lost years ago. Where will he find the money? Thanks to his talking dog, Lucille (whom only he can hear), he gets an idea -- to play his flute on the street. A policeman quickly intervenes, but he does give Albert some money, enabling him to buy a tawdry version of the chain with the medallion. Then disaster strikes: Albert loses the gift. But he doesn't give up, and the real adventure begins when Albert and Lucille set forth in the middle of the night before Christmas, looking for the present Albert wants so much for his mother...and encounter angels. Beautifully written, Leslie Norris's story delivers just the right Christmas message -- that persistence exercised on someone else's behalf will be rewarded -- and charms with the notion that there are angels among us. Mordicai Gerstein uses strong line and rich color to bring the story vividly to life.

Tobias is a very special mole. He collects shiny round pebbles and hides them down in his burrow where they re safe . . . or are they? When a friend warns him about robbers on the prowl, Tobias begins to worry. Should he scatter the precious pebbles throughout his network of tunnels? Or can he guard them more easily together in one room?

This contemporary fable warns of the dangers of misplaced trust and unwarranted fears."

Alexander The Great
De Beer, Hans

Last chance! This book is out-of-print and we don't have many copies left. Get it while you can!

Once there was a little mouse named Alexander who dreamt of being big and strong and courageous like his favorite superhero, Mighty Bruno. Alexander and his family are all afraid of Rats, the cat with the long, sharp claws who lives upstairs, and Alexander's father, who has lost part of his tail to her, is so terrified that he no longer dares venture upstairs in search of food for the family. So Alexander must put his dreams of glory to the test. He fashions a bear suit, which makes him feel bigger and stronger and brave enough to undertake the dangerous quest for food. And he succeeds -- until the last minute, when Rats sneaks up behind him and sinks her teeth into his bear suit. It looks like curtains for Alexander!

How a plucky little mouse in a bear costume saves his family from starvation and wins the heart of a not-so-vicious cat in the process is a charming variation on the popular cat and mouse tale.

AMANDINA HAD EVERY TALENT MADE FOR THE STAGE, EXCEPT ONE: Confidence.

She dances, sings, acts, and performs acrobatics, but no one knows because Amandina is terribly shy. Determined to change that, she rents a run-down theater and prepares to give the show of her life. She builds the sets, makes the costumes, and, most importantly, invites everyone in town. When the night of the big performance comes, Amandina nervously opens the curtains...to find all of the chairs empty. Disheartened, she performs anyway, not realizing that she does have an audience member--a very tiny one--who is about to make a big difference in Amandina's life.

Jim Thorpe's childhood was a mix of hard work in the outdoors and a succession of military-strict "Indian Schools" that relentlessly imposed white culture on Native American children. Then in 1907, wearing overalls and a work shirt, he effortlessly broke his school high-jump record--a feat that launched a remarkable athletic career in track, football, and baseball, culminating at the 1912 Olympics, where Thorpe won the decathlon with a world record score that would stand for almost 20 years and the pentathlon with a points total that would never be beaten.
