This book 'quacks' me up! Told in the language of ducks, and illustrated by a series of fabric collages, Quack the duck goes to the moon. Most of the meaning in this book is expressed using variations of the word 'quack,' and readers will have fun interpreting the different quacks and their meanings. Since Quack 'quacked' his friends, and his friends 'quacked' him, he came back!

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.

There is excitement in the air as Little Georgie tumbles down the Rabbit burrow to tell his parents that new folks are coming to the Big House. It's been some years since the Big House has been filled, and everyone knows that new folks may mean a good garden. Food has been scarce for the animals. The last tenants had not planted a garden at all. As more and more signs of the approaching new tenants appear, the excitement grows, but Mother Rabbit begins to worry. The new tenants may have dogs or cats, they might set traps, and they might even have Boys! The new folks come, and the animals' joy rises as they see that the new folks are kind, and considerate to all living creatures. They also make preparations to plant a garden. The animals can hardly believe it when they overhear the man saying that the wall to the garden was not going to be fixed, and no traps were to be set to rid of the animals. The neighbors begin to think that the new folks are crazy, and won't have a garden left when harvest time comes. What do you think? Rabbit Hill won the Newbery Medal in 1945.

The Amazing Karlovsky is coming to town. While the Monroe family is excited about the magic show, Harold the dog, Howie the dachshund puppy, and Chester the cat aren't as excited. They've seen the poster advertising the show where he pulls a rabbit that looks just like Bunnicula out of his hat. Another Bunnicula? That means more vampire bunnies running around town! The Amazing Karlovsky has to be stopped before there are hundreds of vampire bunnies on the loose and Chester has just the plan.

All over the world, people are trying to save animals from becoming extinct. This book tells the story of four successful attempts, in four chapters. Learn how 60 years ago, there were only 21 whooping cranes in the world, and now there are over 400, due to the efforts of the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership. They collected eggs, incubated them to hatch, raised the birds, and even used ultra-light airplanes to teach them to fly. The book also has interesting stories about seals, elephants, and polar bears. The stories may inspire you to make your own efforts to conserve wildlife.
