Have you heard the old story about The House that Jack Built? Most people assume Jack built the house. But one tired pooch disagrees.

Jack’s hard-working, big-truck-driving, hammer-pounding pooch, Max, wants you to know his side of the story in this exciting tell-all tale.

“This book was built for those youngsters with a jones for trucks and other big wheels, and it delivers in spades.”
Kirkus Reviews

A wonderful twist on an age-old rhyme. . . . The vehicles that drive up to the site delivering materials and excavating are rugged and tough, appealing to the construction enthusiasts, but the soaring house is the centerpiece of the story, and Max’s care in building it is obvious. This beguiling book will be a hit . . . ”

– School Library Journal


When an obnoxious cow elbows her way on board a crowded trolley, the hard-working driver loses count and his passengers go flying, even the pigs! What’s happening to the passengers? Will they ever get where they’re going?

“Readers will cheer as the ill-mannered bovine gets her comeuppance, and Meisel’s energetic and humorous acrylic illustrations will keep them in stitches as they practice counting by twos.” – School Library Journal

“Meisel’s colorful illustrations fit this tale perfectly, with the sweet facial expressions of the cow lending surprise to her rude behavior. Not only will readers learn to count by twos, they will also learn the words used to describe pairs: duet, couple, twosome, partners . . . in this funny story.” – Kirkus Reviews

Go Home Mrs. Beekman

Once Upon a Story ….
Saturday story time 11:00AM

Author Ann Stampler read from her new book this week at our Saturday storytime. We have signed copies in the store. This is a perfect story for those little ones heading off to school for the first time.

Go Home, Mrs. Beekman!
K-Gr 2—Emily is heading off for her first day of school, and she insists that her mother stays with her. “Forever!” “I promise….And a promise is a promise. I’ll stay at school for a million gazillion years with my Emily right on my lap.” Mrs. Beekman is true to her word. Even when her daughter discovers that school is actually a fun place, the woman won’t leave. Teacher Sue nicely but firmly insists repeatedly that it’s time for all adults to go home, but Mrs. Beekman is not deterred. She resorts to disguising herself as a coatrack and, on subsequent days, as a big purple hat, green dog, yellow bird, and oversize hula hoop. Finally, Emily kindly convinces her mother that she wants to be in school by herself. Careful readers will note that Mrs. Beekman’s disguises match items Emily mentions in the book’s first pages. The illustrations work perfectly with the text. The characters’ facial expressions are spot-on, and Carrington captures the feel of kindergarten, the love between Emily and her mother, and a child’s first steps toward independence. This enjoyable if slightly familiar tale would work well for one-on-one sharing or storytime.—Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH
