Oliver is a tabby cat who is always the center of attention. Marshmallow is a baby rabbit who moves into Oliver's home. At first Oliver does not welcome Marshmallow, but the little bunny's charms are impossible to resist. This is the true story of how Oliver and Marshmallow become friends. Clare Turlay Newberry's lifelong passions for cats and for drawing come together in this elegantly illustrated book, winner of the 1943 Caldecott Honor. Her legacy as an author of more than fifteen picture books, most of which feature cats, still endures.
Girls and Their Horses
by Camela Decaire
Girls love dreaming about horses but may be curious about what it's really like to own one. In this book from the American Girl Library, real girls give an inside look at the hard work and the great rewards involved in caring for a horse. Readers will discover how to rough-ride at a rodeo, do a handstand on horseback, and raise unusual horse breeds. Included are 24 full-color trading cards and three mini-posters.
Kitten's First Full Moon
by Kevin Henkes
In this beautiful picture book, winner of the 2005 Caldecott Medal, Kevin Henkes captures the sweet, sometimes slapstick struggle of Kitten, who sees her first full moon and thinks it's a bowl of milk in the sky. Any child who has yearned for anything will understand how much Kitten wants that elusive bowl of milk. Readers will giggle as she tries to lick the faraway moon and gets a bug on her tongue, or leaps to catch it and falls down the stairs. In an effective refrain, the narrator repeats, "Still, there was the little bowl of milk, just waiting."
