    4-0 out of 5 stars Lovely
    A beautifully produced book, spectacular illustrations, a heartwarming story. Especially perfect for a read aloud with 3rd and 4th graders.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Rabbit Run
    This beautiful book, both in design and form, is an example of simplicity at it's best. A doll rabbit known as Edward Tulane to his owner (a small girl named Abilene) lives a life of privilege, he has the finest clothes, he has the love of a child, and he has a beautiful gold pocket watch of his very own. There is one problem however, though Edward knows love, for Abilene does love him so, he doesn't understand love. And because he doesn't understand love, he can not love nor can he know what it means to be loved. 5-0 out of 5 stars Truley and purley amazing
    This book is not only pages with letters typed on them but a true masterpiece. As I read it I cried, jumped for joy and felt that Kate Dicammilo was an amazing person. Her books (Because of Win-Dixie, The Tale of Desperaux and The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane) all have won well deserved awards and loved by all who read that feel the story as if were true and truly heartwarming. I've read the story countless times and each time I feel that the world is a wondrous place. Even though Edward is a china rabbit who lives, I didn't feel that it was cartoony and amusing. I felt that it was a true story and not a book that makes you laugh at how cartony it is. You MUST read this book if you are not just a kid who thinks a book is only pages and print. Becasue it's not. I have proof; The Miraculous Story of Edward Tulane.Thanks for reading.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love this book
    I thought this book was great - it was really colorful. The overall feel reminded me of the book "Now I Know the Ten Commandments". I recommend it to anyone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars this story was written by a woman, not Watty Piper
    This story was originally written as "The Pony Engine" by Mabel C. Bragg. The Book "Little Engine That Could" is merely "RETOLD" by Watty Piper. The story was written by a woman who NEVER gets credited for it--Mabel C. Bragg. It's a charming, timeless story and an American Children's literature classic not to be missed.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hooray for correct punctuation!
    As a teacher and mother of 7-year-old twins, I found this book right on target!I have a daily calendar of "Eats, Shoots and Leaves" quips, and the girls are happy to be able to get an age-specific taste of why Mommy is a punctuation stickler.They have read through the book several times, and they have each taken time to show me their favorite pages, explaining to me why the comma made such a difference.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Parents/grammar lovers should expect more
    I had fun reading this book with my kids. Many of the examples were well chosen, and the pictures were always fun, and sometimes pretty clever. (Can you guess how they illustrated I've finally decided to cheer up, everybody!? I couldn't have.) But as an educational experience, the book ranges from unhelpful to misleading or false. The grammar lovers/parents that it targets should expect more.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Very funny for kids of all ages
    My 9 year old thinks this book is hysterical. It would have been better if there were more to it for the price, but it's still worth buying! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars So many good memories.
    My grandmother bought this book for me when I was six years old, and I spent countless hours laughing at the poetry and looking at the illustrations. A wonderful book, definitely; very humorous, a great gift for any child. :) I cannot pick my favorite poem from this book, they are all so hilarious; the time spent reading these stories with my mother, grandparents, or friends when I was a child, is priceless.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another blast from the past for me...
    I absolutely adore these drawings and poems - I have been reading and giggling and remembering my own childhood when I giggled and laughed at them... My kids both laughed and laughed when I read them to them - and my 18 year old daughter had to show them all to her friends. This is a just an adorable book and well worth the money for the kid at heart or by age!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Book Review for a Light in th Attic
    Hi, my name is Dusty McGruder and I read the book A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein.This book is a book of poetry so there is not really a main plot, setting, conflict, or resolution.However, there are sometimes plots, settings, conflicts, and resolutions for each individual poem.

    3-0 out of 5 stars We Like Toes, Ears, and Nose Better
    These two books - Where Is Baby's Belly Button and Toes, Ears, and Nose are so similar, you only need one of them. And my boys prefer Toes, Ears, and Nose. I'm not sure why, but maybe it's because more body parts are discussed.

    5-0 out of 5 stars cute book
    My two year old son likes this book, but it would be even better for a younger child.It will be passed down to his baby brother.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Loads of Fun for Toddlers!
    My 16 month old daughter is not overly excited by most books and loses intrest quickly, but she loves this book and can play with it for an hour. She loves to bring it to us to read with her, and she loves lifting the flaps and she giggles at her accomlishment of showing us where "baby's belly button/eyes/hands etc" are.

    5-0 out of 5 stars friendship
    This is one of my favorite children's books. It reminds me that friendship is something to value and savor for every moment, and is not something to take for granted. Just as Corduroy was doing everything in his power to find his lost butten so he would be wanted, the little girl was saving her money to have companionship from Corduroy.

    I loved this story as a child and now read it to my son.It is so sweet.The story is timeless.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Enchanting....
    This is one of my favorite Robert Sabuda pop-up books, although I am admittedly a fan of all of them.While this book is fairly monchromatic, the simple silver, glitter, and white papers highlight just how impressive the folds and cuts really are.That mere paper can be engineered to leap off of the pages as deer, or swirl upward in a silvery river as fish, or open up as a cave to a den of foxes is truly amazing and it never fails to enchant me or my children.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous, wonderful pop-up book.
    The intricacy of the cut-outs is stunning; the artistry of the whole book is amazing. My son loved this book when he received it as an Xmas gift.We will enjoy it every year for years to come, I am certain.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Stone fox
    I loved the stone fox the book it had sad parts and happy parts but the thing i liked the best was the race and how stone fox was a Indian. I also liked how at the end stone fox was nice to little Willy.

    I got this book when I was 6 and I still like it! It is the touching story of little Lilly, who loves her teacher but hates him when he takes away her purple plastic purse and sunglasses. It is sooo cute and very fun to read. It is very true-to-life, unlike those other stupid books that think they're tapping into the minds of children. I highly recommend this book. I even have a kid-sized purple plastic purse and a Lilly stuffed animal! This is such a cute book. 5 stars and perfect for any age!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another Kevin Henkes hit
    We read two books to our daughter every night. With that in mind, we pay careful attention to the books we buy to read her. I love all of Kevin Henkes' books. They are both visually delightful and entertaining for both my daughter and I. He manages to be intelligent without being corny, and as I am reading I honestly feel like her vocabulary is being broadened. He never "dumbs down" his book with easy wording. I am also an English teacher and appreciate all aspects of his work.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Marvelous--another great Kevin Henkes book
    I just started student teaching this semester and this was the first book I read to my third grade class. Some read it already, but were still very excited to hear it again and again!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Early 90's version- A+
    I also have the early 90's version and it is great. All of the recipes are kid-friendly and family-friendly. I can whip up any of these recipes in a hurry or allow my 6 year old or 2 year old help out. I haven't seen the new version with the colors but this one has mormal font and pictures of each recipe. It is like a grown up cookbook but with the kids favorite foods!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Where did they hide the batteries to power the colors???
    The classic easy-to-use and pantry-friendly Better Homes and Garden Cookbook is pretty much in every kitchen in America and chances are, it's already in yours too.If so, then then there's nothing in this obnoxiously-colored cookbook for kids that you couldn't find in either the adult BH & H cookbook or a back issue of Family Circle.With a few exceptions, (most notably the breakfast pizza and the Hula Stir Fry) it's all extremly standard fare.The only thing that sets it apart is the crazy fonts and colors so obnoxious that I had to wait ten minutes between reading it and writing this review so I could see straight again.I mean, are you really in need of another chicken nugget recipe?Isn't there anything more interesting they could come up with?And it isn't written to make the cooking any easier for kids--they might as well grab your adult copy and save their vision.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest book I have in my kitchen.
    First things first this review refers to the early 90's New Junior Cookbook. Second of all I am not a kid I'm just a 23 year old who lives in an assisted living Duplex who is learning how to cook to become more independent.

    KNUFFLE BUNNY received the CALDECOTT HONOR award for 2004.The Caldecott Medal "shall be awarded to the artist of the most distinguished American Picture Book for Children published in the United States during the preceding year. The award shall go to the artist, who must be a citizen or resident of the United States, whether or not he or she is the author of the text."The runner-up of the Caldecott Award is called the 'Caldecott Honor Award.'So right away we know the pictures and the story are superior to most other children's books.And I can attest to the fact that this is one of the best I've seen for babies and toddlers.I know that this book is geared towards the preschool to first grade group but the pictures and text are very elementary so I imagine even little ones can identify with this story.

    I LOVE Willems's books.They are all awesome!His illustrations and story lines are hillarious and fun to read aloud.The pictures in this book are especially witty as he used photographs of a real city with overlays of his own simple chracter drawings.(No, he's not paying me to say all this!)If you pay attention, you'll see a cameo of Willems's infamous "Pigeon," too!Great for youngsters and parents to read together, and will become a family favorite! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource
    This book served not only as a wonderful reference, but also provoked various discussions between my [...] son, my husband and myself.It's written in a manner that was easy for my son to understand and it continues to hold his interest.We haven't finished with it as of yet, but so far it has provided us with another avenue in dealing with our child's anxiety issues.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Magical Story of Love and Hope
    This is one of the most inspirational children's books I have ever read. The message is simple but powerful and an inspiration for all. It is part Pinocchio,part Pride of the Yankees, and it works. For anyone who has ever had a child go through any kind of serious illness, it is a wonderful reminder of how sometimes the smallest thing can suddenly reach out to that child and bring them back to you, and how you should never give up fighting. For those who have lost a child, it is a powerful lesson in love, hope and strength. For those whose lives have never been touched by serious childhood illness, it is a chance to reach out and hug your own kids and realize just how special each and every child is and how much they bless your life. It's all about believing, and the message comes through loud and clear. This book should be on every child's bookshelf, in every classroom and in every library. It is a story to read again and again. The illustrations are just perfect for the story, gentle and magical. Since the proceeds of this book go to charity, you are not only sharing the magic of The Boy of Steel with your own children, you are helping other children as well. Young or old, you will be touched by the inspirational story and the simple style of the author. It is a book I now proudly own, and my child, a survivor of serious childhood illness, is now 20. It is a wonderful reminder for me that I am one of the lucky ones -- truly blessed to have my son. He has read it, too. Read The Boy of Steel and share the message of love with others. It truly has touched my life. ... Read more

    The original, "A Treasure's Trove" book, was a fun treasure hunting experience for our family.The solution book gave us great insight to clues we may have overlooked.We are looking forward to the next book:"The Alchemist's Dar".What a wonderful concept written by a very talented author.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Review for "Official Solution Book for A Treasures Trove"
    The solution book for A Treasures Trove explained in detail about the treasure hunt for a treasures trove. It was amazing looking at the things that I overlooked, and also discouraging. "If only I had known"...etc...are still racing through my head. If you have no idea what Treasure Hunt I am talking about, it is called "A Treasure's Trove", you can order it online.

    Editorial Review

    A stuffed toy rabbit (with real thread whiskers) comes to life in Margery Williams's timeless tale of the transformative power of love. Given as a Christmas gift to a young boy, the Velveteen Rabbit lives in the nursery with all of the other toys, waiting for the day when the Boy (as he is called) will choose him as a playmate. In time, the shy Rabbit befriends the tattered Skin Horse, the wisest resident of the nursery, who reveals the goal of all nursery toys: to be made "real" through the love of a human. "'Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'" This sentimental classic--perfect for any child who's ever thought that maybe, just Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Never trust your therapist
    My therapist recommended that I read this book, for reasons unknown to me. It is a good children's book, but not for an adult suffering from agoraphobia.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Made me real
    Who would've thought that I would learn one of life's lessons tucked within a children's book?
    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful heart-touching story...
    Absolutely loved it.At first, I thought it was strange...Because I thought it would be animated, but instead it was a sequence of still pictures.Like, as if, you were reading the book.But, within the first few minutes I was hooked and a half hour flew by with a wonderful ending.Meryl Streep does a beautiful job narrating the story and the piano music by George Winston is lovely.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book!
    My kids and I love "Scribbles". We also purchased "Doodles" at the same time. The drawings are fun and my kids are always entertained and challenged...great for car trips or anywhere you and your kids are stuck sitting around waiting.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Scribbles
    My son is 4 and really loves this book.I initially bought it for use in the car on long trips but it was too heavy for him to hold and color in his lap.He loves using it at home on the table.

    5-0 out of 5 stars the most amazing coloring book ever
    this book is truly incredible. it really allows the child to be completely creative and develop outside of the box thinking. i highly recommend this unique coloring/activity book. yes, it is a little pricey and 19 dollars, but well worth every masterpiece they create in it. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Train Your Child To Be An Analytical Thinker (and Innoculate Him Against Math Phobia)....
    After her math teacher "Mrs. Fibonacci" says that almost everything could be thought of as a math problem, the narrator enters a bizarre realm where "everything seems to be a problem," and it gets increasingly worse, as she becomes a "math zombie" before the brilliant (and for older folks, profound) conclusion.The math problems start out simple ("It takes me 10 minutes to get dressed...If my bus leaves at 8:00, will I make it on time?"), even English is a math problem ("If mail+box=mailbox... Does lipstick-stick=lip?)"Money, time, measurement, fractions, sequences, estimation, sets, logic and more are covered--there's even a quadratic formula and mention of Zeno!The brilliance of this book is that it anticipates and removes the obstacle of math phobia, specifically fear of word problems, that I saw more often than not back when I was a math teacher.Although the bookcover says "For ages > 6 and < 99,"and that is true because of the layers of relevance, I'd especially recommend it for early third grade, that way by the time the onslaught of word problems begins, word problems will seem more like word "puzzles" and fun.Great critical thinking tool, fun both in its story and visuals.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Um...yeah
    This book is really stupid and, honestly, if I had children, I would not ever put them down by giving them this book.Anyone who has a brain with a capacity higher than that of one with F.A.S. should be able to figure out the answes within two seconds or less and is a waste of money and time.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Real-Life Math Book
    This book is great for showing kids how math constantly appears in real life!
