As a family grows, so does its capacity for love, for dreams, and for hope. Two lions celebrate their grandchild and express all the ways this new life has expanded their world, and the hope they hold for his future. A companion to Matthew Cordell’s stunning Wish and Dream, this picturebook picks up with a new animal family celebrating their little one.
As an elephant couple embark on a life together, thoughts of children are far away-at first. But as the desire for a child grows, so do unexpected challenges. And it’s only after thwarted plans and some difficult disappointments that their deepest wish miraculously comes true. Now available as a board book, this beautiful, uplifting story about the beginning of a family is just right for parent-child reading time.
Little Louie is stuck in bed with a bad cold. His nose is clogged, his ears are crackling, and his brain feels full. All he wants is his mom to take care of him, but whenever he calls out for her, his stuffed-up nose summons slobbery dog Bob instead! As Louie tries and tries to make himself understood in this funny picture book, kids will love calling out with him, “Bob, not Bob!”
It’s time for one little seed to come out of his shell. But he’s afraid. It’s a big world out there. There may be dangers! (Like monsters!) There are definitely obstacles. (Like rocks!)
And while there’s a good deal of uncertainty, he discovers that he has friends to help guide him on his way and root for him to have his day in the sun.
