  • Samuel and the Acorn Queen

    Barbara Price

    language (B. J. Price, July 12, 2015)
    Samuel is a little boy filled with energy, imagination, and mischief. He is unaware that his family has come upon hard times. He cannot understand why his parents are responding to his requests more often with "no" than "yes." It seems to Samuel that his parents always say "no" to even the smallest of his request. Samuel sits at the roots of the great oak tree to complain, sulk, and sometimes cry about what he sees as his misfortune. The Acorn Queen who resides inside the tree is troubled by Samuel's sadness. She wants Samuel to understand that joy and happiness is a decision. Also, sometimes a "no" may not mean “never.” It may mean to wait until a better time.

  • The Three Pigs

    Barbara Pritzen

    Paperback (Golden Press, March 15, 1980)
    Enjoy Caldecott winning author David Wiesner's book, The Three Pigs, in Chinese. This picture book begins placidly (and familiarly) enough, with three pigs collecting materials and going off to build houses of straw, sticks, and bricks. But the wolf's huffing and puffing blows the first pig right out of the story . . . and into the realm of pure imagination. The transition signals the start of a freewheeling adventure with characteristic David Wiesn
