15 things not to do with a puppy

2018

by Margaret McAllister and Holly Sterling

The hilarious follow-up to 15 things not to do with your granny and 15 things not to do with a baby has all the warmth and humour of the previous two titles and teaches children how to look after their new puppy in a fun, quirky way. DON'T teach your puppy how to play the trombone or take her to school. DON'T let your puppy drive the car or juggle with the washing up. DON'T walk your puppy at a football match or wake her with a shout - she won't understand. DO play with your puppy, be patient with your puppy, walk your puppy and give her lots of cuddles and love. In no time at all you'll be best friends!

A bike like Sergio’s

2016

by Maribeth Boelts and Noah Jones

Ruben feels like he is the only kid without a bike. His friend Sergio reminds him that his birthday is coming, but Ruben knows that the kinds of birthday gifts he and Sergio receive are not the same. After all, when Ruben's mom sends him to Sonny's corner store for groceries, sometimes she doesn't have enough money for everything on the list. So when Ruben sees a dollar bill fall out of someone's purse, he picks it up and puts it in his pocket. But when he gets home, he discovers it's not one dollar or even five or ten--it's a hundred-dollar bill, more than enough for a new bike just like Sergio's! But what about the crossed-off groceries? And what about the woman who lost her money?

A box full of kittens

2007

by Sonia Manzano and Matt Phelan

Ruthie loves Superman. Ruthie wants to be Superman. And when Ruthie is asked to go spend the afternoon with her aunt, who is about to have a baby any day now and may need some help, Ruthie seizes the opportunity. It could be her chance to be a hero, should the baby come while she's visiting! But when Ruthie is out fetching a snack for her aunt, she gets so distracted by a box full of kittens in the bodega that she doesn't hear her aunt calling for her, nor does she notice the policemen running to the apartment or the ambulance pulling to the curb. When she realizes what's happened, she's devastated--she's missed her one chance to be a hero! Or has she?
