I am looking for a children’s picture book I remember about a kid (can’t remember if male or female) who was so messy that all his stuff got up and left. I believe his toys left. His bed was tired of being unmade, so it walked out. I think eventually the whole house left. That’s about all I remember!
I’m looking for a children’s book (I think it was published in the 1960‘s) about a king who wanted everything in his castle arranged in groups – all the tables in one room, all the chairs in another, etc. Of course the results were disastrous – and funny. I don’t think King Grouper was the name of the book, but it may have been the King’s name. (Google search led me to books about fish!)
I’m looking for a children’s book that I had in the mid 1970’s. It was a hardcover book and I believe it was oversized. The ‘first’ story was about a child (believe it was a girl) spending the day with her mommy. You then flipped the book upside down & over and there was a ‘second’ story about the child spending the day with his/her daddy and they went to the zoo. I remember a picture of them looking in the animal exhibit and the child is holding a balloon and I think they get ice cream. I’m pretty sure it’s people and not animals (i.e. not the Mercer Meyer little critter book).
I’m delighted by this site and have a book that I’d enjoy seeing again. When I was in kindergarten in 1955, my favorite story was of a goose who decides to have a party for her friends. She cleans her house, and cooks and bakes up a storm. But no one shows up! Then she hears her friends chattering outside at the bus stop and learns that she forgot to invite them. They come in and enjoy her feast, so all ends well.
Obviously, this was a long time ago, so I don’t remember the name. Any one have a clue?
This is a Sesame Street book from late 80s/early 90s (possibly mail order but pretty sure sold as a set) where the subject is a birthday block party. The birthday cake is long, snakelike, but rainbow colored, alternating colors where you would slice it. There were also jellybeans.
This is a children’s book – little girl, house floods, parents are asleep while all their belongs float around them. She jumps across floating furniture down to the kitchen and finds a polar bear in the fridge. Messier style of illustration.
I don’t know the title of this book, I had it as a child. It was a picture book that depicted a city (I believe American) as it changed through the decades. It started as a farm town and then buildings continued to be added. It had a similar feel as Annos counting book. I hope you can help me with the name, I’ve been searching for it for years.
