Booktalk:
Fleming’s adorable little mouse first seen in her book Lunch has an
enthusiastic demeanor, bright red nose and a rabbit sized white tooth.
Alphabet Under Construction begins with a double page spread of the
mouse airbrushing bright red and orange on an A twice her size.
Fleming is known for her bright colored illustrations which she
creates with pulp painting, so put on your sunglasses before reading
aloud.
Horn Book compares the active little mouse to Martha Stewart. Maybe
Fleming should name her mouse Martha, because every letter she
completes
is “a good thing”. Fleming’s Martha Mouse is industrious,
multitalented,
artistic and organized as we can see by the calendar on the last page.

Quick! Places everyone! Hey diddle, diddle, the cat and the fiddle,
the cow jumped over the moon; the little dog laughed to see such a
sport and the dish ran away with the spoon. Oh no! The dish really ran
away with the spoon. How will the rhyme go on without dish and spoon?
Grumpy dog, cat and cow go off to look for them. Lo and behold they
come to a fork (real) in the road. The fork draws a map to help them.
After a visit with little boy blue, Miss Muffet’s spider, the big bad
wolf, and jack and the beanstalk and barely sparing their lives, they
finally find dish and spoon. But, there is only one problem. Dish is
broken all into pieces.

Anna loves to sit and watch her father bind and repair books, hoping
to learn this craft herself. Many people don’t understand the care
that her father puts into the art of bookbinding. Even her father’s
most important customer makes unseemingly hard demands of him, asking
that an order of books be rebound in three short days. Anna’s father
works long hours to accomplish his task, but when Anna’s mother goes
into labor the night before the order is due, all seems lost. Can Anna
help her father and their family business?

Booktalk:
The ChineseAmerican protagonist of this story can’t seem to make her
parents understand that Americans don’t want Chinese food on the 4th
of July. Apple pie and fireworks, perhaps, but Chinese food? No!
Already disgusted because her parents’ restaurant is open every day of
the year, the speaker mopes around the restaurant all day with an “I
told you so” attitude toward her parents. No one comes to buy Chinese
food . . . until after the parade. At 5:00, the people start coming,
and there is a steady stream of them until closing time. After the
restaurant closes, this little girl and her family go up to the
rooftop to watch the fireworks and eat apple pie. Janet Wong
effectively captures the situation of many young hyphenated Americans
who feel torn between the traditions of their parents’ culture and
contemporary American traditions. ChodosIrvine’s colorful, angular
illustrations help to convey the story simply and without
sentimentality.

Booktalk:
“In a cave in the woods / in his deep dark lair/ through the long,
cold winter / sleeps a great brown bear.” Bear is hibernating and on a
stormy night, Mouse and a few other forest animals seek shelter in
Bear’s den. Soon they are eating popcorn, drinking tea, and having a
party while “the bear snores on.” Nothing seems to bother the sleeping
bear until an errant pepper flake from the stew causes him to sneeze
and wake up. Bear is furious, but not because everyone is having a
party in his cave, but because he has slept through it all and missed
the fun! The animals calm Bear by insisting the party has just begun
and stories and food carry the party until dawn. One by one the
animals settle in to sleep, only to leave Bear wideawake, unable to
recapture his slumber. Bear Snores On is a great readaloud as well as
a bedtime book to share on a cold or snowy night.

Booktalk:
“How does Mo Willems know three, four and five year olds so well?”
This was my first thought after reading Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the
Bus.
When I read the back of the book I discovered he was an animator on
Sesame Street. This explains his understanding of my five year old
grandson who begs, pleads, lies and bribes as a way to control his
grammy. If this doesn’t work he is not ashamed of throwing a temper
tantrum just like the pigeon.

puts it on display! This gives Vashti the confidence to elaborate on
her dot with different styles and colors in more pictures until she is
proud of her contribution to the art show. When another student claims
that he can’t draw, she encourages him to make his mark and then she
asks him to sign it, continuing the same cycle of positive

you enjoy a bubble bath, spaghetti dinner, and a rub down?!
Everybody’s “lucky day” is different. You enjoy a good chuckle when
you read about the clever pig in Keiko Kasza’s My Lucky Day. It’ll be
your lucky day, when you read this good book. J

Booktalk:
You know you had one at your school. You know you loved to hate her.
You may have even been one at one time or another. That is if you were
lucky enough to be The Recess Queen. SHE gets to decide what game
would be played. SHE got to decide what jump rope chants would be
said. This recess queen did more than boss the other kids around, she
pushed, smooshed and lollapalooshed kids. Hammered ‘em, slammered ‘em,
kitz and kajammered ‘em. UNTIL a teeny tiny kid named Katie Sue came
to the school. Katie Sue changed recess with bravery and persistence
so now the “playground’s one great place.” And everybody enjoys being
friends …YESSSSSS!

Booktalk:
If you have ever built a snowman, you may have noticed that he (or
she) didn’t quite look the same the following day. Maybe the hat was
tilted, the carrot nose was drooping, or maybe a button or two had
dropped off. What could have caused these changes to take place? What
exactly was your snowman doing all night while you were sleeping?

Booktalk:
Did you know that you have Sarah Josepha Hale to thank for the
Thanksgiving holiday every November? Born on October 24, 1788, Sarah
Hale, widow and mother of five, persistently wrote to six American
Presidents, lobbying for the necessity of a national holiday to
commemorate the first American feast between the Pilgrims and the
Native Americans. In 1863, Abraham Lincoln finally came through,
making Thanksgiving a national holiday. Laurie Halse Anderson’s
wonderful, nontraditional informational picture book takes a humorous
but perceptive look at the life of this forgotten American hero,
arguing throughout that we should “Never underestimate dainty little
ladies.” In addition to “saving Thanksgiving,” Hale wrote “Mary Had a
Little Lamb” and other children’s stories, was the first woman to
serve as editor of an American magazine, and published famous authors
like Edgar Allan Poe. Matt Faulkner’s entertaining watercolor and
penandink illustrations provide funny asides (like a mountain of
petitions sitting outside the State House behind Sarah and eight other
irate women who converge on this building with “Go Away; We’re Busy”
printed on its façade) will keep readers entertained while they learn
history. Following the story, Anderson adds some pertinent factual
information about thanksgiving celebrations that preceded the one in
1621, how the Thanksgiving holiday fared after Lincoln, how football
and parades became a tradition, milestones of the year 1863, the Civil
War, and a more detailed biography of Sarah Hale. Known more for her
Young Adult Fiction, Anderson makes a wonderful and informative
contribution to historical nonfiction through this innovative picture
book. This is, by far, the best historical children’s picture book
I’ve read in a long time.
