I’m a sucker for books about libraries so this was a nice find! It may seem dated to some but it still introduces young readers to libraries and some of the services they provide!
I’ve been wanting to read this ever since I saw the rave reviews! This is another strong collaborative effort telling the story of a fascinating character- this time of Peter Roget who loved lists because they helped him understand the world around him- combined with gorgeous illustrations. Even the end papers are beautiful replicating the original thesaurus and its non-alphabetical order!
Delightful! This gorgeously illustrated picture book with an accompanying CD of musical pieces was a great find for me that I think will be great for classrooms. Even those who aren’t into classical music will be surprised by some of the familiar tunes they hear, from TV, movies, or whatever form of media that have employed them.
Learning about gnomes, fairies, and other magical creatures- not all of them nice- are used to introduce the musical works and composers. In addition to the already mentioned features, there is also a listening guide, glossary of musical terms, and biography and timeline of the different composers!
