Big Bear's Big Boat Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Maeve is unnerved when she and her grandfather find a body in the bog in Ballywhinney,

Ireland. It turns out to be the body of a young girl who lived more than a

thousand years ago. A girl like Maeve, with fair hair, who walked the same fields and

picked the same flowers. When archeologists display the mummy at a museum, Maeve

wonders: Does the girl mind being displayed in a glass case for all to see? Or does she

miss the green meadow where she had lain for so many hundreds of years?

Two picture-book masters sensitively capture the layers of thought and feeling arising

in the face of an awe-inspiring and mysterious discovery.

Synopsis:

A young, simpleand#160;sequel to Little Bear's Little Boat. Big Bear is building himself a big boat, but when he follows his friends' advice, it all goes wrong. Big Bear learns that it's important to be true to one's dreams, and to one's friends.

Synopsis:

This award-winning, loveable tale of a little bear who just keeps growing bigger teaches children about generosity, sharing, and the struggles of growing up. Eve Bunting's simple yet lyrical langauge and Nancy Carpenter's charming illustrations are sure to delight youngsters!

Synopsis:

A young girl witnesses the discovery of the mummified body of another girl in an Irish bog and feels a strong connection to this unknown being from the past.

Synopsis:

Hurry! Hurry! Come meet the new addition to the barnyard!

Synopsis:

When Miss Goose announces that the library is going to close forever, Raccoon and his friends spring into action. Where will they get the help they need to save their beloved library? In books, of course!

This cheery tale from ever-popular author Eve Bunting shows how important libraries are to every community. Facing a dilemma that is all too common in our human world today, the adorable animal denizens of Buttercup Meadow confront it with an inspiring blend of ingenuity, teamwork, and imagination.

Bright, playful illustrations enhance the light treatment of this serious subject, in a story that celebrates the value of books in everyones lives.

Synopsis:

andldquo;SCREE . . . SCREE . . .andrdquo;

Terry is half asleep when he hears the wailing, rising and falling like the waves of the sea. He wishes it were a dream, but he knows it isnandrsquo;t. It isnandrsquo;t an owl screeching, either. Or the Flannerysandrsquo; old cat. Could it be the Bansheeandmdash;the ghostly figure of Irish legend who wails outside a house when death is near?

Why would she come here?

In spite of his fears, Terry goes out to confront her. Is it really the Banshee, or . . . something else?

Synopsis:

Rooster is spreading the word: Hurry! Hurry! All the animals rush to the barn--and arrive just in time to greet the tiniest member of the farm family, hatching out of his egg.
and#160;
Eve Bunting's simple energetic text and Jeff Mack's colorful art come together in a joyful book that's perfect for preschoolers.
