Unforseen Consequences

Expect the unexpected in these picture books.

  What could be worse than having an elephant stand on your foot?  Well, follow along in WHAT TO DO IF AN ELEPHANT STANDS ON YOUR FOOT  http://catalog.plsinfo.org/record=b2146092~S1 and see how interesting life can get.  I love stories that do things like this and fortunately in kids literature there are other authors who like this sort of thing as well.  David Macaulay offers WHY THE CHICKEN CROSSED THE ROAD http://catalog.plsinfo.org/record=b1238905~S1 , and while we're on the subject of chickens why not try Leslie Helakoski's BIG CHICKENS http://catalog.plsinfo.org/record=b1666948~S1 ? To finish things off you might revisit Aesop with LOUSY ROTTEN STINKIN' GRAPES http://catalog.plsinfo.org/record=b1914026~S1 by Margie Palatini.  Settle back and enjoy the winter with a nice big stack of picture books.  You'll never know where they'll take you.
