As the sun sets over the fields, a little girl and her father begin the evening milking. The girl gathers the cows--a "Holstein parade"--and guides them to the barn. Father and daughter work side by side, piling up the grain for feeding, fanning out beds of straw, and hooking up the milkers. In the corner pen, the girl feeds the calves all by herself.
Soon they've filled milk can after milk can for the creamery truck that will arrive in the morning. The fresh dairy product isn't just for them--other families will buy their milk, butter, and cheese at stores and farmers markets near and far, connecting the little girl': s farm to the world beyond.
Phyllis Alsdurf's poetic story lovingly depicts the special bond between a child and her father and the relationship between a young farmer and her animals. With Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher's exquisite illustrations, It's Milking Time is a lyrical and visual treasure--perfect for reading aloud every morning, every night, to anyone who's ever asked: Where does milk come from?
Peewee's in the box Peewee the dog doesn't know any tricks, "not a single one not even how to roll over not even how to shake hands but never mind he is so teeny weeny that everybody loves him," the clown, the fat lady, the thin man, the huge tall giant, the strong baby, the acrobats, the elephants, and all the other amazing performers in the wonderful circus of the man with the quite tall red hat. But then something unexpected happens that threatens to bring Peewee's time under the Big Top to an end.Now Open the Box is a beautiful example of the art of Dorothy Kunhardt, the author of the timeless classic Pat the Bunny and the pioneering picture book Junket Is Nice. Here Kunhardt speaks with wonderfully reassuring directness to children's hopes and fears while making magic out of the simplest things.
