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.
This is a children’s chapter book about a family that lives in (I think) NYC in a brownstone. They stop cleaning their house and it turns into a zoo/jungle with a crocodile, monkeys, birds, etc.
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.
Looking for a fiction YA (perhaps adult) book from the early to mid 60’s that I read in junior high. I was given the book as a present. It’s about a lamb that gets lost in a forest/jungle. I remember that it had a jaguar, panther or puma that befriended the lamb and helped keep it safe. There were no illustrations that I recall; strictly text. It was a fairly long novel, about the length of the Harry Potter novels. The book had a green hardcover with the lamb and trees on it. I want to say that the lamb on the cover was black, but can’t be sure. Does anyone remember this book? I know it sounds vaguely like The Jungle Book, but that really isn’t it.
I read a children’s picture book in the mid to late 80s in the US that was about moral lessons/behaving. Sorry, can’t remember what the cover looked like. There’s probably like 10 stories including: 1. A young hippo waits too long on a train to use the bathroom and poops his pants. An older animal tells him if he pays attention to his tummy and uses the toilet, the other animals will want to spend time with him. 2. A mother tells her young child (sorry, forget what type of animal it is) that electricity is dangerous and warns against putting things in the electrical outlets. A monkey encourages the child to stick a knife or fork in the socket and the child says no, so the monkey does it himself — book shows monkey getting electrocuted. 3. A panda or bear goes walking and ends up getting lost even though his mom warned him against it. The police end up getting involved. 4. There’s also a story about behaving for the babysitter when your parents go out and/or a story about how to behave when you get a new sibling. There’s no humans in the book and the illustrations are cartoony, not super realistic.
An Airedale Terrier's farm is sold to city folk. The dog spends his days finding the animals that once lived on the farm and returning them to it. He must convince the city family that they like and need the animals. The father of the new family finally allows all of the animals to stay. Probably published about 1970.
Seeking an illustrated children's book (probably paintings) with a slew of riddles on one page and an accompanying painting containing the answers to those riddles. Likely published late 70s or 80s, no later. Somewhere in the book is a picture of a Raven and some thread. The last illustration features a horse. Not Animalia, but possibly inspired by it. Book is on the larger side, dimensionally. Thank you.
