When Lizzie discovers the old typewriter her mother used when she first started as a journalist, she's intrigued by it, and uses it to record the events of her life during the year before she turns ten. She types (blogs) about her birthday being too close to Christmas, how she hates being the middle child (squeezed between Norman, the tormentor, and copycat, Ellie), her new teacher, and more.

Eleven-year-old Caddie, and her family, lived in the rolling hills of western Wisconsin during the mid-1800s. Caddie, whose real name is Caroline Augusta, is a bit different from her brothers and sisters. When her family came to Wisconsin from Boston, she was very ill. Once she got better, her father begged her mother to let her grow up free, and running wild, and that's how she is. She would rather plow a field than bake a cake. Caddie, along with her brothers, gets herself into an amazing number of scrapes. This book is a fictionalized account of events that actually happened to the author's grandmother. It won the Newbery Medal in 1936.

Can You Growl Like a Bear?

John Butler (2007), 32 pages
Illustrated by John Butler
Audience: Preschool - Preschool
Category: Animal, Fiction, Picture Books
Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
Growl, chatter, click, and squawk along with the animals in this book! Colorful animal illustrations and rhyming text make this an inviting read. Even better, preschoolers can participate by chiming in with animal sounds like the howl of a wolf, the chatter of a chimp, or the snuffle of pandas at bedtime. The books closes as all the animals quiet down and fall asleep, then instructs the reader that it's time to do the same.
