story and pictures by Tomie dePaola. Condition: UNREAD 2001 Scholastic soft cover, 5th printing. Donation inscription inside front cover. Content: Award-winning author and artist Tomie dePaola has created another lively folk tale based on traditional Irish lore. Jamie O'Rourke, the laziest man in all of Ireland, has been left in charge of the house while his hard-working, long-suffering wife Eileen goes to visit her sister for a week. In spite of his plan to stay in bed the entire time (thus not "dirtyin' a thing"), Jamie's cronies come by to keep him company and eat up the grub Eileen left behind. Jamie goes back to sleep amid the mess that night, only to awaken to a mysterious donkey-man cleaning the house. Pleased at his good fortune, Jamie continues his slovenly ways all week long, watching the Pooka (Irish animal spirit, as explained in the author's note) sweep and wash every night. But lazy Jamie's luck is just about to run out... Questions welcome. [1copy available]

THE MOTHER'S DAY MICE
by Eve Bunting. Color illustrations by Jan Brett. Condition: UNREAD, but not perfect, 1993 Scholastic soft cover, fourth printing. Thee is an almost-invisible "near-crease" front cover at fore edge. Everything else is perfect. Content: Three mouse brothers, clad in bright plaid shirts and lederhosen, leave their snug cottage, intent upon finding the perfect gifts for their mother. Their early morning search is filled with dangers: a snake hidden in the thick underbush, a fox running by. However, the mice are brave, and hand-in-tail, they traipse through brush and briars to find their presents. In the end, it is Little Mouse, returning empty-handed, who has the best surprise of all: a song. The perspective is from a mouse's vantage point: toadstools and ferns seem like trees; a ripe, juicy strawberry is so big that Middle Mouse can barely carry his gift in his two arms; a dandelion fluff ball towers over Biggest Mouse. Through deft, simple lines, Brett captures the brothers' fear, their enjoyment of the sights, smells and sounds of their world and finally, their sheer delight at finding just the right gifts for their appreciative mother. The finely honed details, the soft colors, the expressions of love and sharing make this a story that is as fresh and harmonious as Little Mouse's song. [1copy available]

RAMADAN
by Susan L. Douglass. Lovely, soft color illustrations by Jeni Reeves. Condition: NEW 2002 Carolrhoda Books hardcover (pictorial boards - no DJ issued) first printing. 48 pages. Content: The Islamic holy month of Ramadan may seem like a tough topic for beginning readers, but this On My Own Holiday Book provides an accessible, uplifting introduction. The text and illustrations both emphasize the global reach of Islam, portraying adults and children of many different backgrounds. During Ramadan, children who attempt the fast (not required for kids) endure the challenges of going without food and water and "trying to be a good person all day" by remembering to share and forgive one another. The attractive colored-pencil illustrations show children at school and at home, and the constant presence of food in the illustrations reminds children that Ramadan is not about starving as much as it is about showing respect to God. The story culminates with the celebration of Eid al-Fitr, when Muslim children get presents and sweets. Words like Allah, Qur'an, and iftar are defined in a glossary. Ages 4-8. [1 copy available]
$ 5.50 + $ 3.09 media shipping.

ST. PATRICK'S DAY IN THE MORNING
by Eve Bunting. Three-color illustrations by Jan Brett. Condition: NEW 1980 Clarion Books soft cover, 28th printing (c. 2000+). Content: This is a warm and lively tale set in a village in Ireland on St. Patrick's Day. The main character, Jamie, is the youngest in his family, too small to participate in the annual special parade. Disappointed, Jamie awakens early and sets out to prove them wrong. The story that follows is his march through the village, making music and creating a parade on his own, proving to himself that he is truly big enough to participate. It is one of very few good St. Patrick's Day stories. A bonus in this case is the glimpse of Irish culture and way of life. Baby-Preschool. Questions welcome. [4 copies of book available]

VALENTINE MICE!
by Bethany Roberts. Adorable color illustrations by Doug Cushman. Condition: UNREAD 1999 Scholastic soft cover (stapled wraps), second printing. Very light shelf wear. Content: The stars of Halloween Mice! are back, but this time they're celebrating a different holiday. Four lively mice scamper through a snowy landscape, delivering valentines to all the woodland creatures, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, badgers, beavers, and more. In their exuberance, the three older mice don't notice right off (although observant readers will) that they've left their young companion behind. They track him down and rejoice in a Valentine's reunion. Simple rhythmic text and action-packed line and watercolor illustrations will draw young readers in; Cushman includes welcome details -- such as a tag-along chickadee - -that enhance the story, and mixes full-bleed and framed illustrations to emphasize high points in the text. Baby-Preschool. Questions welcome. [1 copy of book available]
$ 1.29 + $ 3.09 media shipping.
