Hero Mom by Melinda Hardin
“The moms in this book are superheroes. They may not leap over tall buildings, and they may not have super-human speed. But these moms construct buildings, fly planes, and make tanks roll. They do all kinds of things to help create a safer world. These superheroes are moms. Military moms. Hero moms.” [JPB HARDIN]
Fred and Ted’s Road Trip by Peter Eastman
“In their latest adventure, Fred and Ted, beloved canine stars of P.D. Eastman’s Big Dog . . . Little Dog, pack a picnic basket, jump in their cars, and hit the open road—but as usual, things don’t go as the doggy duo plan. They encounter muddy roads, thunder and lightning, tire-piercing cacti, and overenthusiastic tire inflating that almost sends Fred into orbit! Series I can read it all by myself [JE EASTMAN]
“A collection of fun, beautiful projects that children can make and do outside, Outdoor Crafts incorporates natural materials that children can find in their backyard, or that they’ve grown themselves in a garden or pot.
“The book is divided into three sections — Make It, Cook It, and Create It. In Make It, children can create labels for the garden, decorate flower pots, and make a scarecrow. In Cook It, children can get recipes for muffins, blueberry cheesecake, lemon ices and more using the crops from their garden. And finally in Create It, readers can learn to make a path in their garden, make paper from corn and more. In Outdoor Crafts the projects are complete with easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step photography so that kids of all ages can take part and create wonderful crafts they’ll be proud to display.” [J745.5 OUTDOOR]
