The acclaimed author of Black? White! Day? Night! and Lemons Are Not Red gives an entirely fresh and memorable presentation to the concepts of transformation and creatiity. Seed becomes flower, paint becomes picture, word becomes story - and the commonplace becomes extraordinary as children look through and turn the pages of this novel and winning book.

Book:Jazz Baby

Jazz Baby

Lisa Wheeler, R. Gregory Christie

With a simple clap of hands, an itty-bitty beboppin' baby gets his whole family singing and dancing. Sister's hands snap. Granny sings scat. Uncle soft-shoes - and Baby keeps the groove. Things start to wind down when Mama and Daddy sing blues so sweet. Now a perfectly drowsy baby sleeps deep, deep, deep.

Lisa Wheeler and R. Gregory Christie pair up for a celebration of music, imagination, and big families - but they know that even a jazz baby needs to snooze. Oh yeah.

Book:Vulture View

Vulture View

April Pulley Sayre, Steve Jenkins

Turkey vultures soar on the balmy air, looking for their next stinky feast. These birds don't hunt — they like their food to be already dead, and their eating habits serve a very important ecological role. Vultures are part of nature's clean-up crew.

In her signature poetic, energetic style, acclaimed nature writer April Pulley Sayre introduces young readers to the world of the turkey vulture. The gorgeous illustrations by Caldecott Honor–winning artist Steve Jenkins capture these birds in all their surprising majesty.
