Food Hates You, Too and Other Poems

by Robert Weinstock

Hyperion Books, 2009 - $15.99. All Ages.

Cakes that quake at Jake's, pitted prunes who snub June…who knew food felt such revulsion to people? This is a clever collection of fun poetry that turns the tables on the picky eaters in the world. And definitely worth considering for your child's next humorous Oral Language piece.

Mommy in My Pocket by Carol Hunt Senderak

Hyperion Books for Children, 2006 - $12.99. Ages 2 - 6.

Being away from mommy can be scary, and as the little bunny in this book notes, "I'll miss my mommy in every way." But with a little imagination, she finds a way to keep mommy close to her heart, even when she's at school all day. Watercolor illustrations add a sweet quality to this sweet story.

The Cow That Was the Best Moo-ther

by Andy Cutbill Ages 9 - 12.

HarperCollins Children's Books, 2009 - $17.99.

Daisy is a perfect candidate for the farmyard's just-for-cows beautiful baby contest, thinks Marjorie the cow. The fact that Daisy is small, feathery, has a beak, and hatched from an egg is beside the point. Marge wins a special "best moo-ther" award when she defends little Daisy against teasing from the other mother cows. A funny, charming tale for Mother's Day.
