Will Rover ever have his house to himself again? This cumulative tale with rhyme is good for reading aloud, with the repetition of 'Move over, Rover!' encouraging active participation from the listener.

How do you eat your lunch while it's talking to you? This was Mr. Maxwell's dilemma when he walked into his favorite restaurant, Paw and Claw, to celebrate his job promotion with a fabulous meal. Upon ordering the house speciality, raw mouse, Mr. Maxwell received a meal that recommended the perfect wine to accompany it, suggested the essential ingredients to season the dish, and requested a moment of prayer before he was eaten. What was a very HUNGRY and very PROPER cat to do? The young reader will truly enjoy this unusual story of the eternal cat and mouse conflict. 'Mr. Maxwell's Mouse' by Frank Asch and Devin Asch, with its unique dialogue and vivid illustrations, is truly a feast for the eyes and as well as the mind.

'Mucumber McGee and the Half-Eaten Hot Dog' by Patrick Loehr is written with an easy-to-read verse that will have the young reader looking twice at a hot dog. The drama all started when Mucumber slept straight through dinner and awoke with a terrible hunger. 'Mucumber and his pet lizard searched high and low; Looking from his head to his toe. To find something to eat; Which was no small feat. His world turned up-side down; When his sister said with a frown. 'An uncooked hot dog made of meat; Tragically, is a most deadly thing to eat.' Enjoy this story as it gives the reader very sound advice on what to do when 'your stomach is empty and your hunger is great', and all that is left is a dog on your plate!

It was the ninth inning, the bases were loaded, two outs, and the score was 3 to 0. Andy Oyler was up to bat. He was the shortest player in the whole league. Andy was about to get his first pitch when the sky opened up and rain flooded the field. The umpire delayed the game for a while but started it up again just to finish it out. As the pitch approached, Andy felt it was going to hit him but instead it hit his bat. It took everyone by surprise. Where was the ball? The littlest player became an unforgettable hero for his team.
