Book is from the 70's's. A mother or step-mother wants to be rid of one of her daughters, so she send her into the woods during a storm to find either strawberries or flowers, which, of course, are not blooming, and tells her not to return without them. The girl meets 12 brothers who represent the 12 months. The brothers help her out by making flowers bloom early, etc. This one may be too recent.
It shows a girl running through the storm on the cover: The Month-Brothers by S. Marshak, illustrated and retold by Diane Stanley http: Also there is The Month Brothers as adapted from the Samuel Marshak play, by Dorothy Nathan, illustrated by Uri Schulevitz This has a picture in a circle on the front of two Russian gentlemen, the brothers, in long coats, in the snow. We have a 1st of this in ex-library Very Good with a Very Good jacket http: As usual, the real bargain is in the middle of the list. Windy Hill's books are in beautiful condition.
If she says Fine, she means it. This book was reprinted in I cannot recall the title or author of this specific children's book - it was very large, the cover was blue, had a large tree with random household things growing on it seems like paper clips, measuring tapes, etc The book had lots of scenarios of households and towns I'm guessing it was published sometime in the 80's This book has quite a few stories and they all have unusual endings or something funny. One of the stories is a man lying in bed at night and he sees two eyes, so he thinks, at the foot of his bed.
I think he shoots at it and it was his big toes with the moon shining on them, which made them look like eyes. I think one of the other stories in the book was something about a golden arm. The story in which the man shoots at his own toes is "Thing at the foot of the bed". Here are the contents: Some people say -- Funny ones: It was republished, so check for various covers to see if one matches your memories. The book I'm looking for has to be from the late 's. Very cool illustrations of a young girl totally dressed in the mod style black and white dresses and the bob-style straight haircut.
It had something to do with her shopping for clothes. She carries too many boxes and falls and in the end I just remember an image of her wrapped up in bandages. Any idea what this book is? Ive been racking my brain for days about a book that I read in my third grade glass in All I can vaguely remember is a boy that has three wishes or three magical powers he can use or take with him on his journeys with his dragon or big bird? I think Ive lost my mind, but I know the book exists. I remember him walking alone on a frozen snow-covered lake in a blizzard perhaps?????
He looks so sad I LOVE that book. Hi, Thanks but that's not the book I DO have that one I'm trying to remember the name of a book I read in the early s, about a Plains Indian boy with a club foot. He was left behind when his village had to move, and he along with possibly an elder caught and tamed a wild horse.
One phrase that sticks in my mind is "Faster than any man can run," which may have been the subtitle, or perhaps part of a cover blurb. I've tried Googling to no avail. There's a chance it was a school library or Scholastic book sale book. Perhaps it is Amee-Nah: It is still available. I'm hoping to find a book from possibly the late 70's to the early 90's.
The only thing I can remember is that it was about a man or boy who had a hole or tear in his clothes and kept taking other parts of his clothes to patch it This is from 50's or 40's. Mother Goose with a big red hat on cover with other animals. I'm looking for a book that I thought was called '' Return to The Sea''.
It's about a wooden toy shaped like an Indian in a boat and it travels thru rivers and streams until it turns into driftwood. I haven't seen a copy since the 's. See if the artwork on this looks familiar. You can Look Inside the book http: Paddle-to-the-Sea by Holling C. Hollings We have collectible copies in stock frequently, but there are modern reprints with trimmed margins. I remember a book from my youth would have been from 's - probably later 70's rather than earlier about a girl who goes into a quiet and elaborate mansion.
Inside, she discovers portraits of approximately 7 to 9 beautiful women, one was named Mavis. The portraits come to life. It was purchased at a book fair when I was in elementary school probably 4th grade or so. They used to make themselves into swings and slides and other fun things. Looking for an old children's story about a girl visiting a chateau and enters the basement somehow and can't find her way out.
I am looking for a picture book, maybe from the 80s, about an ant. The local giant saw it and had to teach the ant the importance of puntuation. I'm also looking for this book! Google has been less than helpful and no one I talk to know what I'm talking about. I remember it being in one of those 'textbooks' issued in elementary school. Hopefully someone will answer this post soon! In one of the books I can remember it was four or five teens going on a trip to an island.
Before they went they had all gotten their own colored backpacks. I can't remember any names and don't remember any details whatsoever from the other books. I have been looking for years and its bugging me not being able to find them. I know its not much but anything will help. I also recall the four children receiving coloured suitcase to take on their adventure. They solve mysteries and live with their grandfather. I had a set of books, may have been little golden or something Okay so there was this girls book i read in elementary school.
It was a like a series. It was about two best friends. I am searching for a book that I know I read in It is a children's picture book. It came from the library and was wider than it was tall. The story is about a cat that walks along a wall. I'm sure there must have been something else that happened, but I don't remember that.
What I remember is the grey stone wall and the bright, bright, bright pink and red flowers along the wall. I've been looking for this book for years and have not found it yet. I remember reading it to my grandmother as a 5 year old and have always considered it the first book I read independently. I am looking for a book that I read in about year 4 or 5 it was called Stolen I think, the cover was dark with the title written in white.
It was about an old woman who stole girls and tricked them into giving her their youthful bodies. It was British; it was a series of stories that were non-traditional and funny. The illustrations were just average and I wasn't all that fussed about the whole book.

A sweet little book, but it is also flat. Very few of the characters have names mostly they have descriptions "Boy", "Grandpa", "Prime Minister", "Farmer" and so on. I read it to Lucas because it is on Kindle Unlimited but I would not pay for it. This book demonstrates the concept of sharing. It has great illustrations. This book appeals to every age. The boy in the story was a delightful character. What a cute story!!! Nothing too deep, just a fun story about a boy and his cheese!!
The cheese was the biggest and the boy took care of cheese. The boy was very thoughtful This is a good book to read to children it teaches them to be nice and giving I really like this book and so does my little sister and brother.

There are two things in this world that I love doing the most: When I'm not doing either of these, you might catch me whispering to dragonflies, chasing rolling pumpkins, traveling the world with a giant wheel of cheese, or simply having a cup of tea and cake with a caterpillar, a clever little rat, a camel, a lonely pony, a couple of riotous retired neighbor There are two things in this world that I love doing the most: When I'm not doing either of these, you might catch me whispering to dragonflies, chasing rolling pumpkins, traveling the world with a giant wheel of cheese, or simply having a cup of tea and cake with a caterpillar, a clever little rat, a camel, a lonely pony, a couple of riotous retired neighbors, and some school kids who, like me, believe that bullying is not cool at all.
