Pipaluk was out with her father on her first hunting trip. Snuggled under the furs piled high in the dog sled and heading for home, Pipaluk gazed at the night sky as the sled pulled her through the Arctic night. All of a sudden, the dogs led them to the edge of a savssat (ice hole). There, they saw an amazing yet terrible sight. Thousands of Beluga Whales were caught in the ice, without a means of escape. The Arctic Sea had closed in around them and they would all starve if they could not find their way out of the hole into the sea. With the help of the village people, an icebreaker, and a child's song, the whales are led to safety. 'Pipaluk and the Whales' by John Himmelman is a tender and inspirational story of a people's love and respect for their fellow creatures.

From the moment Christina met him, she knew that Prince, a retired racing greyhound, would be the perfect dog for her and her family. He loved her as much as she loved him. He walked her to school and met her outside school at the end of the day. Each night she read to him and he always listened to the very end of the story. Prince made Christina's family complete!

Prudence REALLY wants a pet, but Mom says they make noise and Dad says they cost too much. Prudence comes up with some interesting pets including a branch, a shoe, a tire, and her little brother Milo. None of them are satisfactory, and Prudence is sad. She finally gets a wonderful birthday present in a box that has holes in its sides. This sweet book will resonate with kids who have longed for a pet of their own.
