The first books I remember loving are "Harold and the Purple Crayon" by Crockett Johnson and "Animal Fair" by Alice and Martin Provensen. I also loved "Ferdinand" by Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson and "What Do You Say, Dear?" by Sesyle Joslin and Maurice Sendak. Later on I loved "Homer Price and the Donut Machine", "Alice in Wonderland", "Grimm's Fairy Tales", and one about bread dough that keeps rising and rising. I wish I could remember the name of it.I've lived in 40 different houses in 20 different towns - in big towns and small towns, in mountains and valleys, beside the ocean and across the ocean, and now I live with my husband and dog on an acre in Albuquerque where there are 4 apple trees, 3 peach trees, 2 pear trees, 1 fig tree, and a lot of cacti. We also spend time in a tiny cabin on a tiny island in a big lake in northern Minnesota. We've named the island Good Dog Island in honor of all the good dogs we've known.Find out more at jillmcelmurry.com

Counting game is played as the Little Blue Truck picks up the Christmas trees and delivers them to different homes. Easy, fun way to teach children to add and subtract.

Found this one while browsing the shelves at work looking for other things. Beautiful illustrations! I'd love to incorporate it into a program soon.
