What do a knotter and an otter have in common? Nothing - until you read the words out loud! This collection of words and phrases that mean different things but sound the same is fun to share with friends and family. Get the first wordle (for example, ('A family affair') and then try to guess the second wordle ('A family of hair'). Kids who like short books and jokes will definitely want to pick this up.

I See a Kookaburra!

Steve Jenkins, who has amazed us with titles Actual Size, What Do You Do With a Tail Like This?, and Living Color, introduces us to six different biomes around the world. This informational, 'seek and find' book is a visual feast for the viewer, as well. We can find tiny elf owls in the desert, an oyster catcher in the tide pool, a spider monkey in the jungle, a secretary bird on the savanna, a red spotted newt in the pond, and, of course, a kookaburra in the forest. Each habitat gives us eight indigenous examples. At the end of the book, a glossary gives us just enough information to want to make us learn more.

A school assignment to write to an international pen-pal changed the lives of two teenagers- one in Pennsylvania, the other in the African country of Zimbabwe. Twelve-year-old Caitlin wrote the first letter and was thrilled to hear back from Martin in Zimbabwe. Through the course of these letters, they became close friends and learned about the very different worlds that they lived in. When Zimbabwe experienced a number of problems, Martin's family struggled to afford food, rent and school fees. Caitlin generously sent Martin some of her babysitting money, which allowed Martin to stay in school. Over the course of the next six years, amazing things happened because of their correspondence. Read this true story to be inspired about the power of friendship and small acts of kindness.
