Wow! We just got a TON of beautiful, new Early Readers! The GOOD kind, classics like Little Bear, Henry and Mudge, and Amelia Bedelia!

Come on down and check them out! Here’s a sampling:

Danny and the Dinosaur by Syd Hoff

“Danny loves dinosaurs. When he sees one at the museun and says, ‘It would be nice to play with a dinosaur,’ a voice answers, ‘And I think it would be nice to play with you.’ So begins Dannys and the dinosaur’s wonderful adventure together!”                  [JE HOFF]

Julius by Syd Hoff

“Julius, an African gorilla, finds a home in an American circus. One day he inadvertently frightens away his audience, and goes in search of them.”                     [JE HOFF]

Frog and Toad Are Friends by Arnold Lobel

“From writing letters to going swimming, telling stories to finding lost buttons, Frog and Toad are always there for each other — just as best friends should be.”                  [JE LOBEL]

Little Bear by Else Holmelund Minarik

“Meet Little Bear, a friend to millions of children. And meet Mother Bear, who is there whenever Little Bear needs her. When it is cold and snowy outside, she finds just the right outfit for Little Bear to play in. When he goes to the moon, she has a hot lunch waiting for him on his return. At night she helps him get to sleep. And, of course, she never forgets his birthday.”       [JE MINARIK]

Amelia Bedelia Hits the Trail by Herman Parish

“Amelia Bedelia and her entire class are going on a hike. Amelia Bedelia is excited. What will she find for the classroom nature table?

“Amelia Bedelia spots squirrels, deer, birds, and insects along the trail. She has fun splashing with her friends in a stream, collecting leaves, and having a picnic. Best of all, her nature table find is a surprise in more ways than one! An easy-to-read book about friendship and exploring the natural world that is just right for beginning readers.”           [JE PARISH]

Henry and Mudge and the Sneaky Crackers by Cynthia Rylant

“With his new spy kit and his faithful sidekick Mudge, Henry is ready to look for clues, steal secrets, and flirt with danger. One of the first things Henry and Mudge find is a coded message — could there be another spy in the neighborhood?”           [JE RYLANT]
