Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A perfect introduction to manners and playing nice, by David Ezra Stein—author of Caldecott Honor winner Interrupting Chicken, Pouch! (a Charlotte Zolotow Honor book) and Leaves (recipient of the Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Award).

 

From cuddling koalas to friendly penguins, an array of animals illustrates fun, sweet, and silly examples of “how to be nice,” showing simple ways young children can show they care for those around them. The lyrical text, funny illustrations and upbeat friendship message make this a great gift and a wonderful introduction to manners.

Synopsis:

It's a young bear's first autumn, and the falling leaves surprise him. Eventually, he gets sleepy and burrows into the fallen leaves for a long nap. When he wakes up, there are suddenly brand-new leaves all around. Full color.

Synopsis:

This simple, charming story of a young bear's first autumn is perfectly suited to board book format. Bear is surprised when the leaves start falling off the trees, but when he tries to reattach them, it doesn't work. Eventually, he gets sleepy, and burrows into the fallen leaves for a long nap. When he wakes up, it's spring-and there are suddenly brand-new leaves all around, seeming to welcome him.

With its childlike main character and graceful illustrations, Leaves is a great way to teach the youngest children about the changing seasons.

Synopsis:

A young bear has never seen leaves fall off a tree before. Should he try to put them back? Or take a nap in them? He is getting sleepy. . . . Graceful illustrations and a childlike main character offer the perfect way to talk to children about the wonder of the changing seasons.
