Librarian Recommended

Caterina, a very organized owl, is planning her first party.  She has lists of things to do, lists of friends to invite, and lists of things to love.  Caterina does not want any surprises for her party day. Can there still be a perfect party when a spot of rain threatens?  Pure whimsical fun for ages 3 and up.    

Three very excited cows are ready for fun in chicken's home.  It's time to jump, dance, and wiggle all on an unhappy chicken's tiny couch. The fun ends with a quiet and cozy nap. F-U-N for ages 3 and up.

A torn piece of paper can turn into a crocodile's smile.  A paint spill can be turned into an elephant.  You can turn any oops into an unlimited number of beautiful possibilities.  Imaginative fun for ages 3 and up.
