Click, Clack, Surprise! by Happy first birthday, Little Duck! Everyone wants to look their best for the party. But Little Duck has never had a birthday before--so how better to learn how to prepare than to do what all the other animals do! The sheep trim their wool--so Little Duck trims her feathers. The pigs need a mud bath--so Little Duck squishes and squashes, too. All over the barnyard Little Duck snips, slurps, and shimmy shakes herself ready until...WHOOPS! It's party picture time--and Little Duck is a big mess. No matter--it's not something Farmer Brown's frosted maple cake can't fix!

Liberty Arrives! by A deeply informative and gorgeously illustrated look at the Statue of Liberty, from award-winning nonfiction master Robert Byrd. America's most iconic national symbol was a gift from France to the United States--provided America raised the money for the pedestal on which it was to stand. Urged on by the publisher Joseph Pulitzer, it was raised, largely with the help of children, in the first example of a crowd sourced fund-raising campaign. This book tells the story of the best gift ever: how it was designed, created, transported, and then finally erected on its pedestal in the entrance to New York Harbor. Readable text is enhanced with illustrations chock-full of historical detail in Bob Byrd's lighthearted, witty style.
