Today Let's Celebrate Spring With Stripes And Turtles 

STRIPES OF ALL TYPES
 
A patterned parade of animals comes to life in Stockdale's stunning new book! 
Bouncy, alliterative rhyme and gorgeous illustrations introduce readers to a wide range of striped animals. An afterword provides more information about each featured animal and where it lives, and explains the role its stripes play. Readers can test their knowledge of animal stripes with a fun matching game at the end!

 

A PLACE FOR TURTLES


This fact-filled, colorful look at the amazing world of turtles includes a call to action to protect these creatures and their habitats.

In simple yet informative language, A Place for Turtles introduces readers to the ways human action or inaction can affect turtle populations. The text provides an intriguing look at turtles, at the ecosystems that support their survival, and at the efforts of some people to save them. At the end of the book, the author offers readers a list of things they can do to help protect turtles in their own communities.

When Rain Falls written by Melissa Stewart, illustrated by Constanc...

GIVEAWAY!
 
We go inside when the rain comes down, but where do animals go? That depends on the kind of animal and where it lives. Bees hide in hives and ants stay safe in underground nests. Squirrels pull their long bushy tails over their heads like umbrellas. Caterpillars crawl under leaves. This new book for young readers offers a first glimpse at how different animals in different habitats behave during a thunderstorm. In simple, easy-to-understand language, veteran childrens book author Melissa Stewart takes a lyrical look at the behavior of animals in forests, fields, wetlands, and deserts and briefly describes how each creature interacts with its rained-soaked environment. Constance Bergums soft, watercolor paintings colorfully depict the animals and special features of each habitat. Individual sidebar and panel illustrations provide close-up details of the natural world.

KATIE: The Little Girl Who Stuttered and Then Learned to Talk Fluen...

HCRI Founder and President Dr. Ron Webster has penned a delightful children’s storybook,Katie: The Little Girl who Stuttered and Then Learned to Talk Fluently. 

This is a true story about a smart, vivacious young girl who wants to overcome her stuttering and speak fluently. Katie’s stuttered speech causes her daily frustration and embarrassment.

The way she talks inhibits her ability to freely share her thoughts and feelings. She endures teasing from other kids. The only time she finds solace is when she escapes to a nearby park where she loves to play hide and seek.
