A playful picture-book tour of the Swedish alphabet, in which curious characters explore the American Swedish Institute
A is for "Akta dig Look out " And when you do, you'll see the nyckelharpa, or keyed fiddle, that Axel's father made--which followed Axel from Sweden to America. You'll also find Axel, a snappy dresser, with his umbrella and bowler hat. He's one of the inquisitive characters who will accompany you on these pages, guiding you through the twenty-nine letters of the Swedish alphabet. Each letter does something exciting. C is "Cirkulera Go round and round " And for D, "Dansa Dance "
This fun introduction to the Swedish alphabet, a romp from A to Z (and then to to ), is also a delightful tour of the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, a cultural center alive with stories past and present. Artifacts from the museum's collection are charmingly rendered in watercolor and animated by whimsical pen-and-ink characters that draw readers from page to page. Tara Sweeney and Nate Christopherson, a mother and son collaborative team, create magical realism in A to Z , their first picture book. Their irreverent curiosity delights and begs a timeless question--how can exploration and discovery help us grow?
The Best Scenes for Kids Ages 7-15 contains 50 challenging scenes for kids by some of our finest playwrights. All have subject matter appropriate for production in schools, much of it "serious" and "challenging " which will interest child performers without offending administrators, teachers or parents. Some are comic (laughs), some are dramatic (no laughs), some are seriocomic (some laughs). There are scenes here by veteran playwrights such as Don Nigro, Jenny Lyn Bader, Eric Coble, Constance Congdon, Arleen Hutton, Jack Neary, Kermit Frazier and Carlos Murillo, and by exciting up-and-comers such as Cassandra Lewis, Reina Hardy, Deanna Alisa Ableser, Martha Patterson, Mark Lambeck and Merridith Allen. Some are from plays, but many are original pieces written for this book. The age of each character is given, but don't let that deter you if you like the scene, as many could be done by kids not that age.
