Buddy's father had a beautiful big nose. He was a great sniffer. Buddy's mother had beautiful big teeth. She was a great chomper. Buddy had beautiful big ears. It didn't matter. Helen Lester and Lynn Munsinger have created eight children's books together. Munsinger's unparalleled animal characters and Lester's hysterical text have joined together to create another silly tale about a bunny who just can't seem to listen.
Buddy the rabbit has beautiful big ears. Unfortunately, these ears dont always listen. In fact, they never do. One day, Buddy fails to listen to his parents and gets caught in the lair of the infamous Scruffy Varmint, Buddy must learn to listen before he gets stuck there forever. Delightful and infused with humor, Lesters texts and Munsingers illustrations will entertain and inform a wide audience. Included in each book in the Laugh-Along Lessons series is a note to parents and educators to help unpack the lessons in these stories. With a new smaller trim size, these books are an excellent value and a joy to read!
“I find it so easy to forget / that Im just a girl who is expected / to live / without thoughts.” Opposing slavery in Cuba in the nineteenth century was dangerous. The most daring abolitionists were poets who veiled their work in metaphor. Of these, the boldest was Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda, nicknamed Tula. In passionate, accessible verses of her own, Engle evokes the voice of this book-loving feminist and abolitionist who bravely resisted an arranged marriage at the age of fourteen, and was ultimately courageous enough to fight against injustice. Historical notes, excerpts, and source notes round out this exceptional tribute.
