"The B on your Thumb is clever, engaging, educational and fun. I wish I had thought of it." --Craig Smith, author / songwriter of The Wonky Donkey The B on Your Thumb is a book of 60 hilariously illustrated rhymes and delightful ditties to boost early reading--each poem teaches a specific sound, spelling, or rule. Using rhythm and wordplay, they promote phonics awareness, thinking skills, and literacy. But most of all, this book delights young readers with the fun and silliness of the English language. This is a book where words like to play, where letters get cross when they don't get their way. There are sounds to make and jokes to uncover. An owl in your bowl, for you to discover. Meet the K on your knee, who's ready for fun, and don't be alarmed by the B on your thumb! An introduction instructs grown-ups how to use the book and extensive activities at the end allow children to build on their learning. Grouped into three categories--sounds, silent letters and secrets, and words that sound the same--the poems include: See with Two Ees The Story of Q and U The Rain in the Train Ridiculous Ph Enough of Uff Certainly a C The Most ImportANT Which Witch Learning to read has never been so much fun!The B on Your Thumb is a must for every young family's bookshelf.

Witty and inspiring, Allan Wolf's upbeat poems are poised to cultivate a new crop of gardeners, aided by Daniel Duncan's bountiful illustrations. In our garden, can you see? A grand adventure? And it's free! A green delicious fantasy? Behold our magical garden. There's a lot more to gardens than meets the eye! In this collection of buoyant poems filled with fun facts, young nature enthusiasts and budding gardeners are called on to help solve a mystery by the compost bin, join a Wild West-style standoff between some good bugs and a few bad ones, interview the sun to find out what happens when it drinks a glass of water, and learn the fancy names of plants to spice up dinner conversation. They'll be spurred to grab their own gardening tools, drop in some seeds, encounter a few insects, gather fresh vegetables, and find a whole lot of magic. Allan Wolf's playful poems and Daniel Duncan's whimsically detailed, welcoming illustrations combine in a charming celebration of the many wonders and lessons to be learned from a school garden. For further inspiration, engaging notes on the poems and an author's note on jotting down observations can be found in the back matter.
