The Sneetches: And Other Stories
The Sneetches
And Other Stories
Hardcover      ISBN: 0394800893

Embrace diversity with Dr. Seuss and the Sneetches in this collection of stories about acceptance

The Sneetches got really quite smart on that day,
The day they decided that Sneetches are Sneetches
And no kind of Sneetch is the best of the beaches.

The story of the Star-Belly Sneetches and their starless friends is a perfect guide for kids growing up in today's multicultural world. This classic is joined by equally entertaining tales: "The Zax," a humorous take on the art of compromise; "Too Many Daves," which shows kids that sometimes standing out is better than blending in; and "What Was I Scared Of?," which demonstrates how empathy can transform a stranger into a friend.

In these four energetic stories, Dr. Seuss challenges the idea that we have to look the same or be the same to find common ground. Full of Dr. Seuss's signature rhymes and lively humor, this story collection is a must-have for any reader, young or old.

Jumanji
Jumanji
School & Library      ISBN: 0395304482

The game under the tree looked like a hundred others Peters and Judy had at home. But they were bored and restless and, looking for something interesting to do, thought they'd give Jumanji a try. Little did they know when they unfolded its ordinary-looking playing board that they were about to be plunged into the most exciting and bizare adventure of their lives.
In his second book for children, Chris Van Allsburg again explores the ever-shifting line between fantasy and reality with this story about a game that comes startingly to life.
His marvelous drawings beautifully convey a mix of the everyday and the extraordinary, as a quiet house is taken over by an exotic jungle.
