A big favorite about being little, now available as a board book. It can be tough sometimes, trying to figure out if you’re a little kid or a big one. Putting your shoes on all by yourself means you’re big. But if you can’t get your shirt over your head, that must mean you’re still little! The child in this classic story by Kathy Stinson goes through the day wondering which activities mean you’re big, and which mean you’re little. Counting to 10? Definitely big! But can’t reach the cookies … certainly means little. Being big sure would be great … but being little is okay, too. Still in demand after 25 years, Big or Little? is back with a shorter text adapted for toddlers, and wonderfully imaginative new illustrations. Full of the everyday struggles and triumphs of growing up, this favorite story will resonate with pre-schoolers everywhere.

The return of a big favorite about being little. When you're really young, it can be tough to figure out if you're a little kid or a big kid. So it is for one boy named Toby, who sometimes feels big, like when he pours his own milk, but sometimes feels little, like when he spills it. Mom and Dad make Toby feel more grown up when they let him help wash the car, but when his older brother says to go away he feels little again. Sharing toys with his younger sister makes Toby feel big. What about wearing bunny-feet pajamas? That makes you little, right? Not when you're too big for them. All in all, Toby decides that he wants to be a big kid, but sometimes he likes being little too. Still in demand after 25 years, Big or Little? is back with revised, shorter text nicely suited to little listeners, and playful new illustrations that are fun for all. Full of the everyday struggles and triumphs of growing up, this favorite story is sure to inspire readers of any size.

Even Joshua Bell makes mistakes, but there is always a second chance. As a young student of the violin, Joshua Bell learns about an international competition to be held in Kalamazoo, Michigan. He chooses a piece of music, which his teacher suggests may be too difficult, but Joshua is determined. It’s a piece of music he loves. At the competition, Joshua experiences the usual jitters. Once his name is called, he strides to the stage and begins to play, but almost immediately, he makes a mistake. As he is about to walk off the stage, he asks the judges if could try again. They agree, and this time, the playing is impeccable. Dušan Petricic’s brilliant illustrations full of movement and color, capture the sounds made by Joshua’s violin, from the missed notes to the swirling, uplifting strains of the perfectly executed piece. Children will readily empathize with Joshua’s misstep, but they will also learn that there is always a second chance.

Who says dogs can’t fly? Meet Zora: a dog with a big dream and an even bigger personality. All Zora wants to do is learn how to fly so she can catch that pesky squirrel in her yard. But try as she might to prove to her friend Tully—a skeptical cat—that dogs truly can fly, nothing seems to work. Until Zora finds the right motivation, that is.   Kathy Stinson’s charming story of perseverance is beautifully brought to life by Brandon James Scott’s exuberant and wonderfully expressive illustration. Touching on themes of optimism and determination in the face of failure, The Dog Who Wanted to Fly is a book anyone—even a cat—will love.

Winner of the 2014 TD Children’s Literature Award—now in paperback! Dylan is someone who notices things. His mom is someone who doesn’t. So try as he might, Dylan can’t get his mom to listen to the man playing the violin in the subway station. But Dylan is swept away by the beautiful music that fills the air as crowds of oblivious people hurry past. This gorgeous picture book is based on the true story of Joshua Bell, a world-renowned classical violinist who famously took his instrument down into the Washington D.C. subway for a free concert. More than a thousand commuters rushed by him, but only seven stopped to listen, most of them children. Kathy Stinson’s vividly imagined text combined with Dušan Petri?i?’s illustrations that pulse with energy and movement, expertly demonstrate the transformative power of music. With an afterword by Joshua Bell.

A new look for an enduring book about a difficult issue. Review of the first edition: "...poignant and easy to read." -School Library Journal Divorce is never easy, not for parents and especially not for children. More than 20 years ago, celebrated author Kathy Stinson wrote in a positive way about the confusion, insecurity and sorrow experienced by young children whose parents have separated. Since then, Mom and Dad Don't Live Together Anymore has brought comfort to countless families dealing with this difficult issue. This critically acclaimed best-seller, reprinted 15 times, now returns with fresh new illustrations and updated text. For the young girl of the story, splitting time between parents has its ups and downs. She likes the elevators and garbage chutes of mom's city apartment, but the horses near dad's country home are great, too. Not knowing where she'll be for holidays is hard. Even so, she is comforted knowing that each parent still provides the same love and caring --just not together anymore. Sensitively told and featuring reassuring illustrations, Mom and Dad Don't Live Together Anymore offers children a gentle entry into an upsetting subject.

Celebrated children’s writer Kathy Stinson explores “what’s-in-what” concepts for young children. With a chorus of questions that encourage interaction, children will delight in playing with the language of spatial relationships, from a pocket holding treasure to a spoon with a face reflected in it. For one little girl, a day on the farm is full of familiar sights that lead to the unexpected. The barn has a horse in it … just like a house can have a “me” in it. A sock can’t have a head it in, but it can have a toe in it. A pond can even have a splash in it. Best of all, when Mommy comes home, she has a blanket that has a wiggle in it–a brand new baby. Joining charming pictures and a satisfying story with language-learning ideas, A Pocket Can Have a Treasure in It will hold the attention of parents and children alike.

David’s younger sister Ivy, born with multiple disabilities, needs constant attention. She may be eleven years old, but in many ways she’s still a baby. She embarrasses him in public. She takes all of their parents’ focus, to the point where David wonders if they see him as anything more than a helper for Ivy. But despite it all, he loves her. The summer days are following their usual pattern of taking care of his sister, doing chores, and trips to the cottage. The one exception is Hannah, the new girl across the street. Hannah makes David feel anything but routine. He wants to be around her all the time. And, amazingly, she seems to be into him as well. Everything changes when Ivy has an accident while being looked after by her dad. As David wrestles with what happened to Ivy, he is forced to confront his own feelings of guilt, the meaning of mercy, and what can be forgiven.
