Blue Sea

Robert Kalan (1979), 24 pages
Illustrated by Donald Crews
Audience: Preschool - Preschool

A little fish is alone in the blue sea. The little fish is followed by a big fish, which is followed by bigger fish, followed by the biggest fish. Swim little fish! Each fish is stopped in turn by progressively smaller holes until little fish escapes alone into the blue sea. This concept book of comparative words is illustrated by Donald Crews in bright, simple colors. It would be great for reading over again and encouraging little ones to 'read' along, or to discuss the action in the pictures.

Bluebonnet Girl

The Bluebonnet Girl by Michael Lind is a retelling of the original story, An Indian Legend of the Bluebonnet. In this beautifully told story, a little girl sacrifices her little doll with a blue headdress, her prized possession, to end the drought on the prairie to save her people. Due to her selflessness and willingness to do what no one else in her Comanche tribe was willing to do, give up something that was truly precious, she was rewarded with an end to the drought and a field of bluebonnets. This story engages the reader with its beautiful illustrations and verse.
