Mustard, Custard, Grumble Belly and Gravy (Book & CD)
You Can’t Catch Me and You Can’t Put Mustard in the Custard were first published 25 years ago and were groundbreaking collections of poems for children. You Can’t Catch Me won the Signal Poetry Award in 1982, and both books went on to become bestsellers. Combined here for the first time, the conversational and fun poetry from both these collections is fantastically matched by silly but perfectly detailed full-color illustrations. An audio CD is also provided so that children can listen to their favorite poems.

One World, One Day
This beautiful photo book follows the course of one day in our world. Sunrise to sunset is captured in the essential things we all do daily, wherever we live in the world, and in the different ways we do them. The first meal of the day will take on a whole new dimension for American kids as an American pancake breakfast is contrasted with porridge in North Korea and churros in Spain.
Hop, Skip And Jump, Maisy!
Get kids moving with Maisy! Just pull the tabs, and your favorite mouse will show off fun actions that children will want to imitate. Maisy is full of energy, just like the toddlers and preschoolers who love her. With this interactive picture book, children are invited to channel that get-up-and go into stretching, jumping, running, playing ball, jumping rope, somersaulting, and lots more. Like Maisy, of course, they’ll want to take time for a nutritious snack -and hunker down for a good night’s sleep when all that activity is done.
Teens in Russia
The Russian Federation has been an independent country since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. For Russian teenagers, this change has presented many opportunities. At school, teens are learning about a history that the communist government tried to hide. In their free time, they are learning to express themselves in ways their parents were not allowed. Teens in Russia is part of Global Connections, a series that uncovers the challenges, pastimes, and customs of teens around the world.
