New Children's Reads - The 3 Snow Bears and More!
Posted on 16 September 2007
Aloo-ki's quiet morning of fishing comes to an abrupt when she realizes that her loyal sled dogs have become stranded on an ice floe. Running for help, the young girl soon finds an igloo, but it is empty, its polar bear inhabitants off on a pre-breakfast stroll. Hungry herself, Aloo-ki decides to sample the goodies and then, sated, settles down for a comfy nap. When she awakes, she and the reader will make several happy discoveries. Perfect bedtime reading. Ages: 4-8
Just like growing girls and boys, Bear sometimes feels under the weather. As autumn casts a light chill over the forest, the furry hero of Bear Snores On catches a bad case of the blahs, complete with sniffles, sneezes, and an achy body. Not even his playmates can rouse him from his sick bed. Fortunately, a little rest, several rounds of herbal tea, and a few tender, loving lullabies will put him and his young readers back in the pink. A feel-good book about not feeling well. Ages: 4-8
It's two fun books in one, hosted by the irresistible square pumpkin, Spookley! All kids have to do to go from Colors to Numbers and back again is flip over the board book. What they'll find inside are cheerful, entertaining lessons in rhyme, filled with a patch of smiling pumpkins in a variety of shapes. Ages: Infant-Preschool
