Ant and Honey Bee: A Pair of Friends in Winter (Candlewick Readers)by Megan Mcdonald
Synopses & Reviews
Megan McDonald is the author of the popular Judy Moody series, the Beezy series, and many more children's books. She grew up with four older sisters, so hand-me-down clothes were common. "One year," she says, "my mother made pilgrim costumes for all of us at Halloween. I was youngest, so when I outgrew one pilgrim costume, there was always another to take its place. Believe it or not, some of those costumes are still around, and an entirely new generation is wearing them!"
G. Brian Karas has illustrated more than sixty-five children's picture books since 1983, including THE BONE KEEPER by Megan McDonald. He has written and illustrated three titles of his own, one of which, HOME ON THE BAYOU, was a 1997 BOSTON GLOBE--HORN BOOK Honor winner.
Itand#39;s Christmas Eve. Gossie and Gertie hang their bright colored boots, while Peedie and BooBoo hang their striped stockings in the barn. Ollie stomps through the snow. Itand#39;s not easy to wait for Father Christmas Goose!
Full of adorable humor, snowy illustrations, and irresistible charm, this holiday story of Gossie and friends is now a Level 1 Green Light Reader. Those just learning to read independently will identify with Ollieand#39;s impatience in waiting for Christmas to finally come. This edition features a free read-along audio download. The perfect gift for beginning readers.
