Picky Mrs. Pickle
Audience: Preschool - 2nd Grade
Picky Mrs. Pickle definitely knows what she likes and can't seem to try anything new. She has only green dresses in her closet, wears only eau de pickle perfume, eats only pickle pie, and has had her hair styled exactly the same way for ages. She is as happy as can be, doing the same thing day after day. That is until little Sophie Claire comes along and convinces her that maybe she isn't as 'happy' as she thought she was. 'Picky Mrs. Pickle' is an amusing story in rhyme that illustrates to the young reader the benefits of trying something new!

Pink and Say
Audience: 2nd Grade - 4th Grade
This Civil War story is a true one, passed down through Patricia Polacco's family. Sheldon Russell Curtis (Say) describes how he was wounded in battle, and left for dead somewhere in Georgia, when another Union soldier found him. Pinkus Aylee, a black soldier, carried Say back to his mother, who nursed this stranger back to health, and cared for the two boys. Pink and Say shared an incredible bond, broken only when they were captured by Confederate soldiers, and taken to Andersonville prison, where only one survived.

Pipaluk And The Whales
Audience: Preschool - 3rd Grade
Pipaluk was out with her father on her first hunting trip. Snuggled under the furs piled high in the dog sled and heading for home, Pipaluk gazed at the night sky as the sled pulled her through the Arctic night. All of a sudden, the dogs led them to the edge of a savssat (ice hole). There, they saw an amazing yet terrible sight. Thousands of Beluga Whales were caught in the ice, without a means of escape. The Arctic Sea had closed in around them and they would all starve if they could not find their way out of the hole into the sea. With the help of the village people, an icebreaker, and a child's song, the whales are led to safety. 'Pipaluk and the Whales' by John Himmelman is a tender and inspirational story of a people's love and respect for their fellow creatures.
