Quiet Bunny loves the sound of the forest, especially the night song. One night, he wishes to be able to make a sound, any sound, to join in. Though he spends the next day on a journey to find a sound and even tries to copy the bird's chirp and the snake's hiss, he is still unable to make any sound. After some sage advice from Owl, he is able to start the night song in his own special way.

Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
Everyone is a little nervous and has questions on the first day of school. 'Will they give us a pencil?' 'Will I learn to read?' But when Thomas arrives on his very first day, there is no school, just a teacher. 'We will build our school. This is the first lesson,' she says. You see, Thomas's school is in Chad, Africa and the first assignment of the year is to build the school building using mud bricks. Nine months later, the school year is over. What they learn is theirs to keep, but Mother Nature takes back the school. The rains and winds come and slowly destroy the mud school. Come September, the teacher and students will be back to build and learn more.

Rapunzel lives atop a broken-down apartment building with Aunt Esme, the scariest lunch lady at the local school. Roger, lead guitarist in a high-school band, overhears Aunt Esme calling; 'Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair.' Intrigued, Roger schemes to meet the owner of such long, red, hair and they plot her escape. This familiar fairy tale is set in our not-too-recent 1970s, complete with platform shoes, bell-bottoms, and a Saturday Night Live poster (stayin' alive, stayin' alive!)

Cindy Lou Aillaud (2009), 32 pages

A girl who lives in Alaska tells about having recess even though it is 20 degrees below zero. She shows the many layers of clothes she puts on, the games she plays with her friends, and the way her eyelashes and hair freeze from the cold. The only things that keep the class from going outside are temperatures lower than 20 below or a moose in the school yard. The beautiful photographs make you want to join the fun.
