Kid Bits - Baseball

The Power of Sisterhood

Here’s a great new family read-aloud that will take you through the landscape of Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel and other fairy tales while the spunky Eden sisters run into the woods, chased by ravenous wolves and the evil Dr. DeWilde, all the while clinging to the precious pipe given to them by their worthless mother on her deathbed.

After the War

I just found two brand new stories for young children that remind us that wars do end and that there is compassion, humor and generosity even in the midst of destruction. Both Dadblamed Union Army Cow by Susan Fletcher and One Thousand Tracings:Healing the Wounds of World War II by Lita Judge are based on true stories. The feisty Union Army cow refuses to leave her young soldier and saves many men from starvation. In One Thousand Tracings a mother and daughter send hundreds of shoes to distressed families in war torn Europe. Both stories are beautifully illustrated with fascinating author's notes at the end.

Joey's Back!

If you have already met Joey Pigza then you will jump up and down even faster than he can when I tell you he is back in I Am Not Joey Pigza by Jack Gantos. He has already swallowed a Key, lost control and asked himself what would Joey do? Now he has dropped out of school to triple flip turkey burgers and try to keep up with his crazy dad’s crazy scheme. Hang in there Joey!

Kid Bits - Share The Yiddish

Oy Vey! Kibbitzers and Fools: Tales My Zayda Told Me by Simms Taback is a very fun collection of brief tales, Yiddish sayings, and colorful illustrations. It's a very nice family shared read. Gey gezundt!

Culture Bits - Share The Princess

The PRINCESS And The PEA has been around for generations. Rachel Isadora has illustrated a brand new version of The Princess And The Pea and she tells the story using iconic African patterns and profiles. It is bee-yoo-tee-ful !!
