Over in the meadow... there lives a wonderful array of animals and their young. This traditional folksong probably originated in the United Kingdom in the sixteenth century. Over in the Meadow has not only served as a song to teach counting and rhyming, it is also a delightful introduction to the wonderful natural world that we share with our animal friends. Now lavishly illustrated by Marissa Napoletano and collected by John M. Feierabend, this song is sure to delight current and future generations. The fully notated version of this song with all the words is included at the end of this book, along with a detailed history of the song. A beautiful take on a timeless story, this picture book is another wonderful chapter in the continuing legacy of a delightful, classic songtale.

Against a pastel backdrop of falling leaves and raindrops, a young boy learns how to make new friends and cherish the old. “Two hundred and sixty-nine days,” counts a freckle-faced, rosy-cheeked boy. His goodbye to his best friend is still fresh within his young heart. Though his companion has moved away, she sends surprise notes and chocolate bars by post, assuaging his pain and bringing a smile to his face. The support of his loving family and the arrival of a new neighbor with her striped cat combine with his optimism to slow the rainfall and welcome the possibility of a new friendship. Change is a constant in the worlds of adults and children alike. Friends Forever’s poignant story addresses change’s unexpected arrival and, through a softly colored palette, shows that change can be soothed by fond memories. The poetic text by Norwegian author Roald Kaldestad narrates the journey of the protagonist as he teaches readers to embrace the present and appreciate the joys of a bluer sky.

Inspired by Klimt’s famous mural The Tree of Life, this dreamily illustrated children’s book tells the story of a magical tree whose fruit saves lives. Painted during the artist’s "golden period," Gustav Klimt’s The Tree of Life has been interpreted in myriad ways. This children’s book deftly incorporates the mysteries and depth of Klimt’s masterpiece into a story for young readers. A young man is given a seed that grows into a beautiful fruit-bearing tree. After tasting the fruit, he can see into the future, including events that will put the lives of others in danger. A king and his lovely princess daughter test the boy’s predictions, and love ensues. As children turn the pages of this exquisite book, they will be drawn into the intricately detailed and boldly colored illustrations, which echo Klimt’s own artistry. The book includes a gorgeous reproduction of The Tree of Life, along with information about Klimt and his work. Designed to encourage children to discover new details each time they open the pages, this is a charming book that will be read over and over again.
