Starry Messenger

Peter Sis (1996), 40 pages
Illustrated by Peter Sis
Audience: Preschool - 6th Grade
Category: Biography, Historical, Nonfiction, Picture Books

'Starry Messenger' by Peter Sis is a unique biography of Galileo Galilei. Through this book's captivating illustrations and text, the author connects with a variety of readers. The basic text is written in such a way that the very young reader will learn about the amazing life of Galileo; the courageous mathematician, astronomer, philosopher, and physicist. However, due to the author's decorative inclusion of Galileo's own words and detailed fact-filled illustrations, Sis enables the more advanced reader to find this book equally fascinating. Read how one man's search for the truth changed the way that people looked at the stars.

Stomp, Dinosaur, Stomp!

Margaret Mayo (2010), 32 pages
Illustrated by Alex Ayliffe

Vibrant colors, dynamic illustrations, and active, rhythmic language make this a great read aloud choice for dinosaur lovers. The author manages to make even the herbivores sound tough by the way their 'chomping' is portrayed. The colors and sharp contrasts make the dinosaurs seem to almost leap from the page. This is a great picture book for preschool dinosaur lovers, especially those who like to be rowdy.
