    Nothing Ever Happens On 90th Street

    Warm at Home

    Warm at Home
    Bunny is stuck at home with the sniffles. "But there's nothing to do inside!" Then Bunny finds activities that keep him busy for hours! Any child who has been sick at home will find comfort (and amusement) in this to this reassuring story, as Bunny discovers that some imagination, and a little mischief, will go a long way. "Not just warm, but completely cozy . . . from jacket illustration to final scene, a total charmer." (Starred review, Publisher's Weekly) Roni Schotter also wrote Nothing Ever Happens on 90th Street, Passover Magic, a 1996 NCSS-CBC Notable Children's Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies, F Is for Freedom, and A Fruit and Vegetable Man, a Hungry Mind Review Book of Distinction. After working for a number of years as an editor, she now writes full time. She lives near New York City with her husband and son. Dara Goldman has illustrated a number of books for children, including There's No Such Thing, Hello Gnu, How Do You Do?: A Beginning Guide to Positively Polite Behavior, and Merry Christmas: A Pop-Up Book.

    The Boy Who Loved Words

    The Boy Who Loved Words
    In this Parents' Choice Gold Award–winning book, Selig collects words, ones that stir his heart (Mama!) and ones that make him laugh (giggle). But what to do with so many luscious words? After helping a poet find the perfect words for his poem (lozenge, lemon, and licorice), he figures it out: His purpose is to spread the word to others. And so he begins to sprinkle, disburse, and broadcast them to people in need.

    Doo-Wop Pop

    Doo-Wop Pop
    Elijah Earl is used to keeping to himself. But he's not the only quiet one—Alishah hides behind her head scarf, Jacob twitches out of sight, Luis hides behind a book, and Pam Pam is the shyest of them all. It is not until the school janitor they call Doo-Wop Pop steps in that things begin to change for these shy students. Doo-Wop Pop, who was once an a cappella star, helps them form an unlikely doo-wop group, teaching them to be-boppa bold, be-boppa brave, and come-a, come-a, come-a outta the cave. By making music together, Elijah and the others form lasting friendships and discover talents they didn't even know they had! This uplifting tale with vibrant artwork from Caldecott Honor–winning illustrator Bryan Collier can't be-boppa beat!
