Thea decides to plant some old bean seeds and watch them grow as her science project. And grow they do?into a giant beanstalk. Savvy young readers will recognize elements from the classic ?Jack? fairy tale, such as a harp and golden egg, but the haughty grown-ups that Thea writes to for help do not. Thea receives letters and comical advice from a plethora of dim ?experts,? ranging from botanist to symphony conductor to zoologist. Thea?s Tree playfully combines curriculum areas, including science, language arts, and storytelling into a clever tale kids will love.
If the Shoe Fits
Best price for this book: $ 16.29
There was an old woman
who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children,
she didn't know what to do.
She gave them some broth
without any bread,
Then took them to live
in a new home instead.
Too messy, too woolly, too noisy, too small. Whether it's Humpty Dumpty's wall or Mother Hubbard's cupboard, the old woman (who once lived in a shoe) and her children (who once lived there, too) just can't seem to find a new home big enough for their growing needs. So where will they turn for a cozy night's rest? The perfect place is only a step away -- no moving van required!

And, in the end, the old lady makes a surprising and humorous contribution to the holiday festivities.
"Jackson draws on some traditional Thanksgiving foods to give a familiar rhyme new zing. Schachner's exuberant, cartoon-style illustrations . . . catch the comedy splendidly!" --Booklist
"Schachner's watercolor illustrations are absolutely delightful. Children will find lots to examine and enjoy in these expressive pictures, particularly the repeated appearances of the woman's fluffy white cat." --School Library Journal
