I'm searching for a mid-1950s single story children's book about a little animal (can't remember type) that disobeyed mother's instructions and went through the farm fence into the forest, got lost, but finally found its way home. Right hand side pages had single colour pictures. Thank you for any help.
Looking for a fairly recent children’s book. It is an oversized, paperback, picture book with some text. It is probably about 10-20 pages long. I read this to my daughter when she was young, probably around 2009-2012. It may have been published earlier. I recall the cover being yellowy-orange. It has very vibrant full-color illustrations that cover the entire pages. It’s a book about things you don’t like or want to do as a kid and being cranky/grumpy. I remember a few of the illustrations and words. There is reference to having to “pick up your room” and there is an illustration that show a boy picking up a room in his hand. There is reference to mom buying grown-up cereal with ingredients like sticks and sawdust instead of kid cereal. There is another illustration with a very long chore list rolled out like a scroll. There are also references to brother and grandma. It might be a scholastic book. That’s all I remember.
Looking for a book I read in elementary school in the mid 1970s.
Here’s what I can recall about it:
It was a modern updating about a “Noah’s Ark.” Not religious undertones, more of a (early) conservationist perspective about animals. About a man who as a way of saving animals collects animals. (I can picture him faintly, brownish hair with glasses.)
It was a picture book (although not simplistic pictures). For example, the schematic on the boat itself was detailed.
The main character build a modern boat (think a big cruise ship) to house the animals. And thereby “saves” a collection of species.
I know it’s not much. I’ve often recalled the book (I used to check it out continuously).
Let me know if you need any clarifications or if I can answer more questions.
Looking for a children’s book about a boy who snuck and took a nesting doll. While he was sitting on the curb he dropped the smallest nesting doll in the storm drain. I believe he took the doll in a lunchbox? Maybe tried to go to show and tell? He had to tell his mom he lost the doll. My mom read it to me in the 80’s when I was little.
Looking for a vintage children’s book that has a blue shoe or boot on the cover. The story is based on the “There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe” nursery rhyme. However, in this version the woman is nice and gives the children supper stew, not broth without bread. It was published before 1980 but the exact date is unknown. Please help identify this book! Thanks!
Looking for a vintage book (read it to my daughter in the 80's) about a girl named Katerina (Caterina?) (Princess?) who wouldn't comb her hair - had many creatures living in it. She finally got help brushing it from a hedgehog. Book had lovely soft watercolor line drawing illustrations.
