by Barbara Joosse and illustrated by Mary Whyte A Mom's love story to rivaling sons. Each wants to know, "Who do you love best?" Clearly an experienced peacemaker, Mama offers just the right answers. She uses colors to express how, in a way, each one is loved the most. Whyte's (Boomer's Big Day) watercolors amplify the story's considerable emotional pitch. A great bedtime read-aloud.
by Ellen Sabin, Illustrated by Kerren Barbas Heroes come in all different shapes, sizes, ages, colors, and places. (Top secret: Mom and Dad could be one too!) The real question isn't "who" is a hero. It's "why" is she one? "What" makes him admirable? Through this engaging activity book, kids think deeply about what they admire in others...and then what qualities they would like others to see in them. A look at people more than skin deep and an easy way to help your children choose friends wisely.
