Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The eight books in the Mother West Wind series were just the beginning of Thornton W. Burgess s long running, and much beloved, series of children s nature books about the Green Meadow, the Green Forest, and the Smiling Pool. Young readers, and listeners, travel to this timeless world and learn gentle lessons about nature, the environment, and the lesser folk of fur and feathers. * * * * Learn why Johnny Chuck doesn t like Blacky the Crow, how Sammy Jay was found out, how Spotty the Turtle won a race, what happened to Happy Jack Squirrel s stolen nuts, why Bobby Coon washes his food, and fifty-nine more tales in this book. There are stories about Reddy Fox, Peter Rabbit, Blacky the Crow, Johnny Chuck, Ol Mr. Buzzard, Bobby Coon, and a over a dozen more of the animals that inhabit the world of the Green Forest, Green Meadow, and Smiling Pool. * * * * Any imaginative child will be captivated by this book. The chapters are short, with simple language that children will identify with. Read aloud to pre-readers, or read by children themselves, this book will surely be a family favorite in no time, if it isn't already. * * * * Printed in easy-to-read 14-point type, The Mother West Wind Collection, Volume 1 is a compilation of the first four Thornton W. Burgess books in the Mother West Wind series. These are Old Mother West Wind, Mother West Wind s Children, Mother West Wind s Animal Friends, and Mother West Wind s Neighbors, and includes all sixty-one stories and the original sixteen illustrations from the first editions published in 1910, 1911, 1912, and 1913, respectively. * * * * Check out the other Thornton Burgess books published by Flying Chipmunk Publishing at www.
