Benjamin Bear is so impatient for Christmas to come. To help the time pass more quickly, his mother tells him that every day when he opens a door on his Advent calendar she'll tell him a story-twenty-four stories all about another little bear and his long, arduous journey to Bethlehem. The little bear, led by a glittering star, meets many others on his travels across hot deserts, snowy mountains, and through dark, lonely nights. His adventures, filled with acts of heroism and kindness and many small miracles, show him the path to the Christ Child. And by journey's end Benjamin Bear-and all youngsters who share the stories and their simple morals along with him-will understand and celebrate the true spirit of Christmas.Book Details:Format: HardcoverPublication Date: 10/6/2005Pages: 64Reading Level: Age 4 and Up
Collecting more than 42 weeks of Jim Toomey's Sherman's Lagoon, Never Bite Anything That Bites Back transports readers to an imaginary lagoon near the South Pacific island of Kapupu where a cast of coral reef critters battles the encroachment of the hairless beach apes (a.k.a. humans).Commenting on such timely issues as rising sea levels, the Gulf oil spill, and social media, inhabitants of Toomey's nautical neighborhood include Sherman, an always-hungry, but otherwise typical kind of great white shark; his witty pearl-wearing wife, Megan; friendly Fillmore the turtle; geeky fish Ernest; macho hermit crab Hawthorne; and salty old Captain Quigley. Inside Never Bite Anything That Bites Back, these bottom-dwelling denizens offer under-the-sea hilarity, along with a real-life call-to-action in relation to our environment and oceans.Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 10/4/2011Pages: 128
