  • Emma's Cold Day

    Emma's Cold Day
    Canadian Children's Book Centre Starred Our Choice Selection, 2002 Mr. Christie Book Award - Silver Seal, 2001 Emma, the plucky but foolish cluck, is back and about to demonstrate one more time that being a chicken is not all it's cracked up to be. In her latest escapade, Emma is one game hen with a big problem. It's the middle of winter and the chicken coop is freezing. Determined to find out how the other farm animals weather the weather, Emma sets off on a snowy trek that almost ends in flaky, feathery disaster. Along the way she provides plenty of laughs and, once more, unwittingly saves the day.

    When We Go Camping

    When We Go Camping
    In this beautifully illustrated book, one busy family finds lots to do from sun up to sunset. At the campsite, there’s wood to chop for the fire and fish to catch. And there’s lots of time to explore, climb rocks, splash in the lake, and discover animals in the shadows of the woods. As afternoon turns to evening, supper needs to be made, and just before bed, stories are told around the campfire. When We Go Camping is as instructional as it is delightful. Each painting highlights the tracks of one animal, which curve from the text into the illustration. Readers can turn to the glossary for more details about the wildlife depicted on each page. When We Go Camping is a perfect way to preserve summer memories all year long. From the Hardcover edition.

    A Mountain Alphabet

The treasures and mysteries of nature are depicted in twenty-six full-color paintings, each with a line of alliterative text. Objects that begin with that letter of the alphabet are waiting to be discovered in each illustration. Complete with detailed information about each setting painted, this is a visually and mentally stimulating experience – from A to Z. From the Hardcover edition.
