Amazon Says: A riveting picture book biography of Betty Skelton, aviation and auto racing pioneer, from award-winning author/illustrator Megan McCarthy. In the 1930s most girls were happy playing with dolls. But one girl, Betty Skelton, liked playing with airplanes, watching them fly around outside, and even flying airplanes herself! She lived for an adventure—in the air, the water, and on land—and nothing could stop her, especially not being a girl. When Betty Skelton was young there weren’t many women flying airplanes or racing cars, but she wouldn’t let that stop her. She was always ready to take on a challenge, and she loved to have fun. Beetty rode motorcycles, raced cars, jumped out of planes, and flew jets, helicoptors, gliders, and blimps. And by the time she was an adult, Betty was known in the press as the “First Lady of Firsts!” This vibrantly illustrated picture book biography reveals the exciting life of a brave pioneer who followed her dreams and showed the world that women can do anything! less...

Amazon Says: Over hill and dale with little dog. Little dog is not about to stay behind when its owner goes off for a walk in the country. But it's quite a job for little dog to keep up as it takes a big jump to get across a divide that's too wide; a big swim when it finds itself in water that is too deep; and a big run when confronted by a porcupine that is too prickly. Toddlers will fall in love with little dog, whose quizzical expressions reflect the dilemmas he finds himself in. With its predictable, repetitive pattern, the text lends itself perfectly to small children chiming in. For older preschoolers, the simple language makes it an ideal learn-to-read book. With its companion title, Cat Comes Too, this board book will delight any toddler who loves animals -- and books! less...
