In this poignant story, the counting rope is a metaphor for the passage of time and for a boy's emerging confidence in facing his blindness.
"A rich tale of intergenerational love and respect.... It is a moving collaborative effort that reverberates long after the book is closed." --Publishers Weekly, starred review
Say 'nighty-night', it's animal bedtime all over the world! From the moose in Maine to a Bahama iguana, from the kangaroos in Australia to the pandas in China, sleepy creatures everywhere are ready to rest under blankets of stars. But before they drift into dreams, they send a special kiss to an adorable child, 'YOU', curling up in bed, too.
It seems like everyone; her mother, her teacher, even other girls and boys, is telling Cassandra that she just can't do anything right, whether it's tidying her room or painting a picture. No wonder she feels misunderstood and alone. But then she meets a very special angel who shares a secret that will help Cassandra light up the world.
Windy days are kite days and Arlo and his friend Jack are having fun flying theirs all the way 'to Jupiter and Mars'. But when a gust of wind blows Arlo's kite into a tree, he wanders off by himself to find it. Suddenly thunder booms, the rains pour down and poor Arlo's all alone, lost in the woods. Will he get back home again?
