|Sherlock Chick and the Case of the Night Noises, by Robert Quackenbush, illus. by Robert Quackenbush|
|Loud noises are keeping all of the animals awake at night.
Sherlock Chick decides to investigate. This is my favourite Sherlock Chick story.
Read it with your child and see how the animals finally discover where the mysterious
night noises come from!
|Cowardly Clyde, by Bill Peet, illus. by Bill Peet|
|I remember when I first saw this book--the illustrations were
so incredible; How I hoped that the story would be good, too--it was! I don't enjoy all
of Bill Peet's stories as well as this one, but I own several of them, and I enjoy the
artwork in every one! Watch Clyde and his master, the brave Sir Galavant, as they
take on the ogre that has been terrorizing the village. The story features fine drawings
of farm animals, dogs, people, buildings, a forest, (and an ogre)!
|Buzzle Billy, by Michael P. Waite, illus. by Jill Colbert Trousdale|
|Buzzle Billy lived in the land of the Buzzles, where
everyone played games and shared, until one day when Buzzle Billy turned greedy
and caught a case of "gimme hands"! Oh no! What will the Buzzles do to cure
Billy and put things back to normal? This is a cute little story about sharing with
illustrations that will amuse you and your children. This is a good addition to your
children's library. (from the Building Christian Character series)
|The Bears' Vacation, by Stan and Jan Berenstain, illus. by Stan and Jan Berenstain|
|The Bears take a vacation to the shore where there are
many lessons to be learned. Before small bear can go swimming he must learn the
lessons that papa bear has for him. They both end up learning some very important lessons
about safety at the beach. This is an early Berenstain work that I enjoy very much.
