We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

In this pleasingly repetitive rhyme, a dog invites farm animals to play, but the lamb is too shy, the hare too fearful, and the chick too small. Bright illustrations hint at the next animal the dog will invite. They show him ever hopeful, then, with a page turn, dejected after each rejection, until at last he meets a child who'll play "All Day!" Copyright 2010 Horn Book Magazine Reviews.

PreS-K—In this charming and simply told story, Dog approaches the farm's kitten, lamb, hare, chick, pig, and calf, who all give excuses as to why they cannot play ball with him. "'I don't dare,' says the hare. 'I'm too easy to scare.'" Dog looks utterly dejected, his head resting forlornly on a blue, starred ball, when he sees a pair of hands out of the corner of his eye. They belong to a little boy, who is ready to play "All day!" Full of life, the paintings capture the personalities of the animals, especially Dog, who exhibits expressions from hopeful excitement to sadness to joy. This is a good addition to farm-themed storytimes, especially because it is so subtle in its locale, focusing entirely on the endearing brown-and-white pup with floppy ears.—Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Half Hollow Hills Community Library, Dix Hills, NY
