The Dreaming Game
A loving and inspiring portrait of Dorothy Meserve Kunhardt, an extraordinary woman who brought an intensity and originality to the life around her.

The Dreaming Game is Philip B. Kunhardt's tribute to his mother, a woman of rare vision and intellect. Dorothy Kunhardt is best known as the author of the runaway bestseller Pat the Bunny, a revolutionary children's book in its time. But she was also a respected Lincoln scholar and biographer, and an inveterate chronicler of life, which she experienced as meaningfully and deeply as possible. And until she died in 1979, Kunhardt recorded everything around her-her early loves, her feelings about marriage and family, her perceptions about the world-in highly charged letters to her lifelong friend Katherine Strauss.

These letters and a host of others, combined with her son's research and memories, provide entry for us into a unique life-one of privilege but also of awareness, of restrictions, and, at the same time, of a remarkable openness to life's possibilities. The Dreaming Game is an extremely moving tribute to a mother, wife, writer, and friend, who was not always easy to live with but whose originality and passion for living left their mark on those around her, and on children everywhere, and continue to serve as an inspiration for all of us.

Children's Literature: An Invitation to the World
Children's Literature: An Invitation to the World is written and organized in a manner that engages the readers and that will instill confidence in teachers when selecting and using literature in their teaching. Readers are asked to take a world view of literature-what it is; how to recognize one's own; how to recognize an author's-and encouraged to see children's literature through a lens that includes people not like themselves. The book tackles tough issues such as gender and racial bias and how they can be insidiously promoted in literature. No other book on the market engages readers more than this one. Rather than just presenting topics, the book asks "What can we learn from them?" In addition, the first-person narrative involves readers in the discussion, rather than simply presenting content to them. Elementary and middle school teachers, curriculum developers and anyone interested in children's literature.

Peacock and Other Poems
By the author of the Small Poems books

This new collection by Valerie Worth, conceived before her death, is sure to delight readers who know her celebrated Small Poems books, and will serve as a wonderful introduction for those first encountering her enchanting free verse. Accompanied by Natalie Babbitt’s fine pencil drawings, “Peacock” is joined by twenty-six other elegant poems by Worth about things as various as pandas and steam engines and icicles, in which, like her earlier work, she “find[s] in ordinary things Blake’s universe in a grain of sand” (Booklist).
