Snowmen at Work

By Caralyn Buehner

When winter sidewalks seem to have been mysteriously shoveled, a child wonders if snowmen are magic and have nighttime jobs while the people sleep. Includes hidden pictures.



By Judy Sierra

Winter weather is keeping children from visiting the zoo. So the animals are out of sorts–listless, grumpy, and no longer fun. All except two little friends, a very small hippo and a baby kangaroo. Their hip-hopping, toe-tapping, and rap-rocking soon has the other animals joining in the hip-aroo beat.
