When you could neither talk nor stand life's hourglass still filled with sand, I gently held your tiny hand and gave it three soft squeezes. When you awoke within the night And cried from fear and called for light, I held you safe with all my might and gave you three long squeezes. Follow a father and his son from babyhood to baseball games to graduation and beyond in this loving saga about the unbreakable bond between generations. A perfect gift, Three Squeezes is a tender, rhyming picture book that is an ode to the love between parent and child, no matter how old the child (or) parent is.
If you give a child a box, who can tell what will happen next? It may become a library or a boat. It could set the scene for a fairy tale or a wild expedition. The most wonderful thing is its seemingly endless capacity for magical adventure, a feature imaginatively captured in cardboardesque art by Chris Sheban and rhythmically celebrated in this poetic tribute by renowned children's author Jane Yolen.
Take this shuttle to the stars in an innovative board book based on scientific concepts of space travel, with fictional twists.
In his strange new room on his big new bed, Brody tosses and turns, holding his stuffed dragon named Horst. His parents can't help him fall asleep, so he has no choice to go out and search for a better bed. Is it a squirrel's nest? A cloud? A rowboat on a pond? No, the moon is too bright, and the croaking frogs are too loud, so there's nothing for it but to go back home and jump into his big new bed, where a friendly dragon makes a perfect pillow.
A young boy decides to practice for the wild life of a cowboy with a backyard sleep-out under the stars, only to find that nights on the range have ways of testing a cowboys courage.
When a wonderful new book arrives at the library, at first it is loved by all, checked out constantly, and rarely spends a night on the library shelf. But over time it grows old and worn, and the children lose interest in its story. The book is sent to the library's basement where the other faded books live. How it eventually finds an honored place on a little girl's bookshelf--and in her heart--makes for an unforgettable story sure to enchant anyone who has ever cherished a book. Kate Bernheimer and Chris Sheban have teamed up to create a picture book that promises to be loved every bit as much as the lonely book itself.
The cowboy life isn't easy. But Cole knows it's the only life for him. In what other profession does a hard day's work lead directly to campfires and log pillows? In this story of Western dreaming, a boy and his faithful dog leave indoor comforts behind for their first sleep-out under the stars. But when the sun goes down, how's a wide-eyed cowpoke to handle his first run-in with bandits, bears, and worse?
It's the summer of 1903 in Brooklyn and all fourteen-year-old
Joseph Michtom wants is to experience the thrill, the grandeur, and
the electricity of the new amusement park at Coney Island. But that
doesn't seem likely. Ever since his parents--Russian
immigrants--invented the stuffed Teddy Bear five months ago,
Joseph's life has turned upside down. No longer do the Michtom's
gather family and friends around the kitchen table to talk. No
longer is Joseph at leisure to play stickball with the guys. Now,
Joseph works. And complains. And falls in love. And argues with
Mama and Papa. And falls out of love. And hopes. Joseph hopes he'll
see Coney Island soon. He hopes that everything will turn
right-side up again. He hopes his luck hasn't run out--because you
never know. Through all the warmth, the sadness, the frustration,
and the laughter of one big, colorful family, Newbery Medalist
Karen Hesse builds a stunning story of the lucky, the unlucky, and
those in between, and reminds us that our lives--all our lives--are
fragile, precious, and connected.
