I don't know 'kangaroo'


Children's Books

There are exactly four words used over and over in Jeff Mack's story. "Good News, Bad News" features Rabbit and Mouse who are going on a picnic. Children will giggle as they read the pictures of the good news/bad news on each successive spread. After reading it to them once, they'll be able to read it over and over to themselves.

Count to 100 with this group of energetic peas in Keith Baker's "1-2-3 Peas." A livelier group you'll never meet as they fish, plant, paint, dance, race, skip and a whole lot more. This will be requested reading more than once, and children may even count to 100 themselves by the time they're done.
