Betty Lou Blue
Nancy Crocker

Sale! Was $16.95, now $6.98!

Betty Lou Blue had the world’s biggest feet.

Whackety, thwackety, flappety feet.

The other kids laughed when she whappeted by. "If those feet were wings," they would yell, "you could fly!"

Poor Betty Lou. It’s not easy being funny-looking, as this delightfully rhyming story illustrates. On the day of a huge snowfall, Betty Lou watches shyly as the other kids play in the park. Suddenly they’re trapped in the drifts! Now Betty Lou’s snowshoe-sized feet are looking quite handy. Perhaps this is her chance to be a hero?

Utterly quirky and full of fun, this winning tale celebrates generosity of spirit. Boris Kulikov has won much praise for his artwork and is perhaps best known for illustrating John Lithgow’s Carnival of the Animals. His lovely winter cityscapes and offbeat perspectives make a terrific pairing with firsttime author Nancy Crocker’s sprightly story. This is a funny, stylish book that will appeal to readers of any age (or shoe size!).

Color Magic Sticker Play Book
Sale! Was $25.95, now $7.98!

A hands-on way for children to learn about color—and express their creativity!

 

With this innovative book, young artists experience the wonder of color and learn through discovery how colors mix and change. By combining unique translucent stickers, one color on top of another, children can create new colors and then change them in an instant. The reusable stickers easily peel away from the special laminated pages so that a fresh “canvas” is always at the ready.

 

The more than two thousand stickers come in geometric shapes of various sizes, which can be arranged to create people, animals, airplanes, cars, and more. Each spread suggests a familiar setting such as home, a playground, a beach, and a farm, with a few illustrations started for inspiration. As children manipulate the circles, squares, rectangles, triangles, wedges, and ovals, they will begin to see the geometry of the world, as artists do.

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD—Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
