Maine children’s books

Seasons

Captures the curiosity that children naturally have about the world and the seasons.

Engages through exciting adventures of the imagination — from pumpkins that come alive to the dragons of stormy weather.

Calms with reflective rhymes that look closely at the beauty of the changing year.

Extensively and beautifully illustrated to compliment the elegance of the text.

Ideal for the classroom, with poems and original ideas accessible and familiar to very young children, while the pen and ink style invites older kids to read without embarrassing color pictures for “little kids.” Likewise adults will enjoy the renewed vision of seeing through the eyes of a child.

Isn’t it great to be the boss? Clipper the puppy thinks so. He’s so sure that he is the boss of everyone on his Maine Island. So sure, until one day—

“Clipper is a puppy who likes to be the boss, until an adventure makes him reconsider. In this book, we enjoy the beauty of Maine, the kindness of his family, and Clipper’s own good humor. The pictures are lovely, with beautiful colors,” said Jane McCloskey, author of Robert McCloskey: A Private Life in Words and Pictures.

Wisdom of Bear

Beginning with the story of a little boy who wanders off to live with bears, bringing a name to his people, this collection of poems and prose explores our relationship with Nature and her bears, with humorous, original, and moving tales based on mythology.

Wisdom of Bear bridges the generations. There is plenty of insight interwoven in a series of magical, mythological tales to fascinate the mind of a child with a bedtime story, or in the classroom for discussion.

Two epic poems with strong ringing rhymes full of bright images and action.

Love stories in a mythical context that allows young people to enjoy romantic events, as in the Shrek movies, with a humorous sense of equal opportunity.

Native American stories that broaden the sense of our heritage.

Stories of coming of age and rights of passage.

The mystery of feral children who return from the wild launches the theme of how we can learn from the animals, how Nature’s positive forces can speak to us through a bear.
