Minna and her classmates have been asked by their teacher, Mrs. Bloom, to work on a Kindness Project. Mrs. Bloom wants them to do and draw and share an act of kindness. Minna and her family do lots of kind things, but Minna can’t decide which one is right for her project. Then she starts writing and drawing and cutting—and an idea for a paper quilt picturing many acts of kindness begins to take shape!
Important lessons about being kind to each other are depicted in NANCY ELIZABETH WALLACE’s charming artwork using origami, recycled paper, markers, crayons, and colored pencils.
Buddy and his mother are spending a relaxing day at Pete’s Pond. As Mama tells Buddy about the animals, bugs, and plants they see, Buddy sketches them on his drawing pad. Ducks! Whirligig beetles! Lily pads! Buddy is curious about everything, but most of all, he hopes to see a turtle. And he does—but not the kind he expected! This book, illustrated with photographs and cut-paper artwork, is a perfect introduction to environmental science and biology, but will also be useful to all enthusiastic pond goers. A make-a-rock turtle craft activity is included.
Walter, a warthog, sees water everywhere: in the bathtub, from the garden hose, from the sky as rain. He writes down everything he notices about water in a special blue notebook. And then he shares what he learns with his friend Willa. As Walter and Willa do some science experiments, they find out cool things about water: water evaporates, ice floats, water can bring a dying plant back to life, and more. Tag along with Walter and Willa in this fun introduction to one of Earth’s most important resources. Simple experiments you can do at home and a page full of fascinating facts about water are included.
