    The author provides young children with a fictional tale highlighting the importance of humility and the dangers of pride. In many ways, this story reads like a classic Aesop’s fable, telling the tale of a little mouse who rises to great power and strength with a friend’s help. He soon decides to use his new powers to terrorize creatures smaller than himself. This short but powerful story will expose young children to important and timeless moral principles in a way that is truly captivating. The book contains larger print, as well as a series of simple but effective two-color woodcut print illustrations. This Caldecott Medal book will work well as a read-aloud book to children below age seven, or as a supplemental reader for youngsters in grades two or three. Recommended by Beautiful Feet Books. 32 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    Proofreaders have their own code and symbols for the work they do. Now anyone can understand the meanings behind them with this chart for proofreading. The front side has a list of symbols, their meanings, and examples. For example, the proofreading symbol "sp." means "spelling mistake" and appears over the word "clowdy" in the example sentence, "The day was clowdy and cold." The reverse side of the poster has six sentences that need correcting and spaces to rewrite them once corrected. For example, one sentence reads, "allen has to guinea pigs three mouses and won gerbil as pets." Use your proofreading symbols to correct all the errors! 17"x24". – John

    Welcome to the world of Doctor De Soto, a clever mouse-dentist whose renown has spread throughout the entire animal kingdom! While his gentle touch and professional demeanor certainly have something to do with his popularity, most notable are his inventive methods enabling him to treat animals of virtually every size and kind. Every kind, that is, except for "cats and other dangerous animals," (the reason for this exception likely being that a devoured dentist is no dentist at all). Doctor De Soto and his wife-assistant hold fast to this rule until one day when a miserable fox shows up on their doorstep, begging for relief from his rotten bicuspid. Moved to pity at the animal's pain, the munificent mice agree to admit the formidable fox. The fox manages to remain on his best behavior while conscious, but once the De Soto's administer anesthesia in preparation for the periodontal procedure, Mr. Fox falls into unconsciousness and his medicated mutterings betray his intent to eat the mice in payment for services rendered. When the wily fox "comes to," he learns that he must return to the dentist's office the next day to receive his replacement tooth, and so he decides to postpone the wicked deed. That night, the doctor and his wife lie awake worrying for their safety. Read and find out about the plan they concoct in hopes of "outfoxing" their ungrateful patient. 28 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel P.
