Mister Pip

Mister Pip the cat had a busy night and he’s looking forward to getting some sleep. All he needs is somewhere quiet to lie down. He tries all his favorite spots for snoozing, but between the monstrous VROOOM of the vacuum cleaner, the persistent RING-RING of the telephone, and the incessant COO COO of canoodling pigeons, he is disturbed and awakened over and over again. Not even his favorite plant can offer Mister Pip the solace he needs. Will Mister Pip ever find a peaceful place to rest his head? Thereza Rowe’s stylishly illustrated story is sure to strike a chord with preschoolers who will love making the book’s sounds out loud as much as they’ll adore Mister Pip himself.

Senor Pancho Had a Rancho

The barnyard animals on Old MacDonald’s and Senor Pancho’s farms have a hard time communicating. MacDonald’s rooster says cock-a-doodle-doo! While Senor Pancho’s gallo says quiquirquí. The English-speaking chick says peep, peep, but el pollito says pio, pio. Then the cow says moo and la vaca says mu! Maybe they’re not so different after all! So all the animals come together for a barnyard fiesta, because dancing is a universal language.
