This companion to the successful If Animals Kissed Good Night (over 200,000 copies sold!) imagines how animals would say “I love you.” If animals said “I love you” like we do...how would they say it? Whale would make bubbles shoot from her spout. Boa would give her hatchlings a hug. Gorilla would snuggle his child to sleep. And across the animal kingdom, every creature would show love in a special way. Ann Whitford Paul and David Walker are back with If Animals Said I Love You, a sweet imagining of love in the animal world.

Mein Mädchen. Glaub an dich, folge deinem Herzen und höre niemals auf zu staunen. Für mein Mädchen ist eine Liebeserklärung an all die Mädchen dieser Welt. Auf jeder einzelnen Seite feiert es die Einzigartigkeit eines jeden Mädchens und ermuntert dazu, stolz und stark man selbst zu sein; aus der Reihe zu tanzen, wenn es nötig ist, und Nein zu sagen, wenn man »Nein« denkt. Es ist ein inspirierender Mutmacher, Starkmacher und Glücklichmacher, das jedes (kleine und große) Mädchen wie eine liebevolle Umarmung daran erinnern soll, dass es geliebt wird und etwas ganz Besonderes ist.

Librarians and educators can shake up storytimes, help children stay healthy, and encourage a lifelong love of reading with Dietzel-Glair’s easy-to-use resource. Demonstrating exactly how to use children’s books to engage preschool-age children through movement, it’s loaded with storytimes that will have children standing up tall, balancing as they pretend to walk across a bridge, or even flying around the room like an airplane. Presenting hundreds of ideas, this all-in-one book is divided into six sections: “Art” spotlights titles that are natural hooks for art or craft activities alongside ideas on how to create art just like the character in the story, while an appendix includes art patterns that can be used as coloring sheets; “Games” includes searching games, follow-the-leader games, and guessing games to enhance the books in this section; “Movement” features books that kids can jump, stomp, clap, chomp, waddle, parade, wiggle, and stretch with; “Music” chooses books perfect for activities like shaking a maraca, singing, dancing between the pages, and creating new sound effects; “Playacting” lets kids pretend along with the characters in these books, whether it’s washing their face, swimming with fish, or hunting a lion; “Props” encourages storytime leaders to bring out their puppets, flannelboard pieces, and scarves—these books have enough props for everyone in the program to have a part. Each chapter includes as much instruction as possible for a wide range of motions. Pick and choose the amount of movement that is right for your storytime crowd, or do it all!
