Henry Holt and Co Arnie, the Doughnut

A deliciously imaginative story about friendship?from the author / illustrator of The Scrambled States of America. Arnie was fascinated as he watched the customers stream into the bakery. One by one, doughnuts were chosen, placed in paper b...ags, and whisked away with their new owners. Some went by the dozen in giant boxes. ?Good-bye!? Arnie yelled to each doughnut. ?Have a good trip!? ?This is so exciting!? Arnie beamed. ?I wonder who will choose ME?? At first glance, Arnie looks like an average doughnut?round, cakey, with a hole in the middle, iced and sprinkled. He was made by one of the best bakeries in town, and admittedly his sprinkles are candy-colored. Still, a doughnut is just a doughnut, right? WRONG! Not if Arnie has anything to say about it. And, for a doughnut, he sure seems to have an awful lot to say. Can Arnie change the fate of all doughnuts?or at least have a hand in his own future? Well, you?ll just have to read this funny story and find out for yourself. Arnie, the Doughnut is a 2004 Bank Street - Best Childrens Book of the Year.

In the Middle Ages, people believed that insects were evil, born from mud in a process called spontaneous generation. Maria Merian... was only a child, but she disagreed. She watched carefully as caterpillars spun themselves cocoons, which opened to reveal summer birds, or butterflies and moths. Maria studied the whole life cycle of the summer birds, and documented what she learned in vibrant paintings. This is the story of one young girl who took the time to observe and learn, and in so doing disproved a theory that went all the way back to ancient Greece.

In 1845 in Concord, Massachusetts, Henry David Thoreau began a radical experiment: he built a cabin in the woods and lived there, ...alone, examining the world around him. He spent his days walking the shores of Walden Pond, growing beans, observing plants and animals, and recording his reflections in his notebook. These reflections eventually became his seminal work Walden. In this lovely picture book, Robert Burleigh and Wendell Minor imagine a special day spent with the celebrated writer and naturalist through the eyes of a child. Together Thoreau and the young boy watch small but significant wonders such as swimming fish, fighting ants, and clouds in the sky. It is a day full of splendor and appreciation of the outdoor world.
