All other p ending posts are reviewed individually and approved at least daily. No sales offers, please. Many, many thanks to all the wonderful readers who help to ID these books! We also appreciate those who take the time to thank the contributors for researching their books. You both bring up a good point: the plot is identical except for the article of clothing. The Mitten is an old Ukranian folk tale. A mitten was used in the original Ukranian story, but undoubtedly this is a variant. The best known modern ones are Jan Brett's and Alvin Tressault's. Rachev Illustrator and there is a recent version of this title rewritten with different pictures.
I doubt if any of these have been anthologized, so we are no closer to finding your book!
Incidentally, Goodreads has an excellent list of books in English, set in the Ukraine. I'm looking for the elementary school historical series available to me in the mid's. The books had teal blue bindings and a black sillouette of the head of the historical figure. If there were any illustrations in the books they were in black sillouette. I remember books on presidents and some separate ones about their wives: Martha Washington, Dolly Madison, etc.
I believe the school library carried about 30 different volumes. The silhouette biographies, also called the Childhood of Famous Americans series. They were well written, by various authors, and are inexpensive in later editions, although they have collectible prices as firsts. Bobbs-Merrill was the publisher, at least in the beginning. They are currently in print as paperbacks published by Aladdin but I don't know if they have been "dumbed down", probably.
You will have almost 4, results.
This book is prob from the s or s. Thanks so much!!!! It was about or so when I read this from my school library. I can't remember any key phrases but I know it had some crazy words in it and you had to turn the book in different directions because of how the book was written. It had a girl with red or brown hair in it???
This story was in a children's story book. I can't remember any of the other stories in the book. This book was hard cover and a little wider than average. The book had a bunch of different stories in it. I think one of the stories was about a girl who went out and found an injured cat in the rain. It was apart of a story but the dragon pictures always bothered me so I'd pass them while reading. If -anybody- remembers this book I am looking to rediscover an old book I enjoyed as a child It showed various seasons in which the horse was used to haul hay, for ice harvesting in the frozen lakes, and for harvest of maple being tapped I loved the book as a kid and cannot think of the name nor author Can you help me?
I think the time line was perhaps the 30's or 40's I seem to recall the people in it were rather stout looking and wore overalls a lot I've been trying to remember the name of a book I read when I was about 12, I dont remember much about the book but Ioved it. I wanna say it was named "silver" or "silvert" which I think was the last name of the main character, if I remember right it was about a girl about 12yrs old who just moved to a new place I think with her father and they lived in a trailer.
Maybe silver was the name of a dog I really dont remember. I do remember the cover had a girl with blondish brown hair looking awfully sad on it. I know I'm no help. She does live with her father in a trailer park. I think they were new in town. She makes friends with the town librarian because they are both interested in growing roses.
Everyone's Talking About
Happy ending. I liked this book, the author's first. The front cover is blue and purplish with a black cat sat in a tree, and a castle in the back ground. I had a book seem to remember an orange binding about a boy who was either a page or a knight who was trying to hunt down a monster or dragon in the forest I was a 70's kid but my mother was known to have older era books 50's or 60's Anyone know what I am referring to? This sounds just like Bill Peet, but I can't find the one I am picturing!
Anyway, go to amazon or google images and see if the illustration style is right. I am searching for a book that I think was called Harvey and the Amazing bubble gum machine. It was quite old. On the other side of the book was another book about monsters I think. So it was two books in one.
Yiddish Children's Literature
Please help! It was a set of mythology books with each one pertaining to a different culture's mythology Greek, Roman, Norse, African, Egyptian, etc. The only other thing I know about them is that they were on the smaller side and either yellow or orange in color so probably more like those cloth-y type covers or something. Im trying to locate a book from my mothers childhood. She says she remembers an angel making snowflakes of different shapes and sizes from sugar?
It was a hard back book with red paper cover possibly with an angel with brown hair. Not the littlest angel.

I read a book about 35 years ago. It was about a girl who went shopping I believe for a dress and goes out to lunch. I think she eats fried chicken not sure but I know she eats chocolate cake.
She may have had her dog with her, but I'm unsure. The drawings were not too elaborate. It was a wonderful book and I would like to read it to my daughter. Thank you for any help you might give. We don't have one in stock to check for chocolate. I was about 14 or 15, a freshman in high school, circa Years later I asked her about it but she had gotten rid of alot of her 'kiddie' books.
The paperback cover was yellow or gold with blue letters for the title. I think it might have shown two teen girls on the cover. The story was about two girls who are sick and need heart transplants. One comes from a wealthy country family and has red curly hair. The other is regular city middle class girl with dark straight hair and has a boyfriend. Dark haired girl thinks red haired girl's brother is cute.
I remember the brother's description reminded me of Leonardo Dicapiro back then except the character wore a cowboy hat. Well rich girl dies towards the end of the book while dark haired girl gets the heart.

Dead girl leaves a goodbye video for her best friend, dark haired girl to watch. I also remember a scene of a cross in the ground that someone hangs a necklace around. Might have been at the end also. Does this sound familiar to anyone??? I remember reading this book when I was younger I think called "Penny Penny".
The front of the book she has blonde hair and is kind of skipping.
