Frozen noses [(Paperback)

Paperback: 22 pages

condition: used very good
The fun and frustration of a winter's day are energetically described in this brightly illustrated picture book: "Frozen noses / Tingly toeses / Sniffle, snuffle / Winter's cold!" Instead of using only standard picture-book words, Carr uses a rather sophisticated vocabulary. Words such as quiver, veer, and collide are folded so effortlessly into the rhyme that it seems a wonder such language isn't used more often in books for the very young. The collage illustrations, which appear to be paper or felt, feature a multiracial trio of friends whose brightly colored clothing contrasts nicely with the gray snow and sky. The book starts with a snowball fight and a sleigh ride and ends, as all winter days should, with a soothing cup of hot cocoa and a nap
Marsupial Sue (Paperback)
by John Lithgow (Author), Jack E. Davis (Illustrator)
If your a kangaroo through and through, just do what kangaroos do. Young Sue really doesn't like being a kangaroo, so she goes off to find something better. First she tries climbing trees like a koala, but that doesn't work. Then she wades into the sea like a platypus, but that's no good either. Finally, Sue joins up with some bouncy, jouncy wallabies...and discovers that being a kangaroo isn't so bad after all. Using a jaunty waltz rhythm, best selling author, John Lithgow reassures children that they can be happy with who they are.
