15 things not to do with a puppy

2018

by Margaret McAllister

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?
