Now, I can't draw and I admire the people who can. I just think more whimsical and realistic drawings of dogs would add to the fun of this book. This is not one I will pick up again any time soon. Apr 26, Katie rated it it was ok Shelves: picture-books. A trippy crayon tour of the solar system that I badly wanted to like, this creative attempt to combine science via an appendix of planetary facts and fantasy dogs in helmets and jet packs "shed hair in zero gravity"!
Plus, without an updated edition: Houston, we have a Pluto problem. Mar 19, Amanda Walz rated it really liked it Shelves: picture-books. This is a cute fantasy book to read to children learning about space and planets. The dogs fly through space and visit each planet in order from the sun. It's a funny idea, dogs in space, and it has rich colors on a black background. Sep 07, Ayoca rated it it was ok.
This book can be used for k-4 to teach about the Solar System. Can be used to teach about all different types of dogs that went to the different planets in space. All the dogs explained how the planets were after visiting them. Jan 26, Katie rated it liked it Shelves: picture-books , storytime.

Baldacchino and Malenfant craft a story about modern gender norms that feels neither preachy nor prescribed — only necessary. It centers on Morris, a creative, fun-loving boy, who finds a tangerine dress in his classroom costume bin. A must-read for anyone who needs some urging to stay on their own course. The illustrations, particularly of the colorful characters met along the way, are effervescent. Watch how CJ, urged by his grandmother to listen to the guitarist play, is whisked off into a world of music. Zak skips the part about lions and gazelles, focusing instead on giving his stuffed animals the low-done on how he was donor-conceived.
If you want to teach your kids about sharing — and avoid ending up on Hoarders — show them this fable about a wealthy, wasteful Lord Cat who refuses to abandon his possessions until he find himself destitute and starving is a good place to start. Think of it as mixed-media collages meet meaningful life lessons.
The act of waiting is such an essential part of being a kid. You must wait for dinner, for bedtime, for dad to get home. A little girl, clad in a red hood, plucks flowers on a walk home with her distracted father. Each flower, she decides, is a gift to bestow. Her journey and good deeds soon prove that simple acts can be splendid things. His words are embodied in this beautifully illustrated tale of a sheep who, out of pure luck, becomes king of his kind.
Louis, said sheep, quickly morphs into a tyrant and the tale that follows serves as a microcosm for the playground struggles all kids encounter. Consider it required reading for any child who flirts with, or is seduced by, power. What it truly concerns, and explains in both sharp prose and wonderful acrylics, is how the tuft-eared creature ended up near said sandwich in the first place.
And that involves a ride in the back of a truck that brings him to the big city and a string of fire-escape climbing adventures. The characters of Du Iz Tak are all bugs, including two damselflies, some beetles, a pill bug named Icky! What follows is a tale of soul searching that leads to not only self-acceptance but a better understanding of the Native American identity. The premise here is simple enough: a cat goes for a walk.
On that walk he encounters a number of creatures, including a child, a fish, a fox, a flea, a worm, and a mouse. How the cat appears on each page, however, changes based on what creature is looking at the cat. To the mouse, the cat appears as a monstrous thing; to the worm, he is but a series of vibrations. In shades of Goodnight Moon , this tale tells the story of Great Big Bear and Little Bear, the latter of whom just wants to stay up a little bit longer. So the two snuggle in and we sweep through the jungle at night time, where everyone is yawning and preparing for bed.. The story follows a young boy who finds a stray dog.
Told by his parents that he is not yet mature enough for the responsibility, he gives the dog to a shelter. The boy, we can tell, loves the dog. But he is never ready for the responsibility. Not the most positive beginning. For a while at least. A little girl spends all day playing with her favorite toy, a stuffed animal named Planet. Once she goes to bed, her loyal companion goes off on his own journey. In this case that means distracting the family dog with a cookie and joining a mouse for a moon-snatching adventure.
The story brilliantly imagines a world children already inhabit: one where their stuffed animals are not only alive but bold. Jeffers created this book, a set of instructions on how to see the world, for his young son. In it, he waxes poetic on everything from the stars to terrain to humanity, distilling it down to the bare bones beauty. Everyone knows that Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. But what happened afterward? Here, Dumpty is a bird watcher who takes his famous tumble while looking for them from atop a wall. Or to see the things he wants to see. Luckily, Humpty is able to overcome his fear and Santat is able to explain to children the importance of dusting yourself off and putting yourself back together again after even the most catastrophic falls.
Little, Playful, Full of Joy; that's who I was as a little boy. Stress free, shy, but so full of glee. Until Heaven took him away from me. I miss you, Dad. Worrying, crying, bullied for so long. Regrets Healed Over. Blood Isn't as Thick as You'd Hope. Boys and Girls she had.
