Feeling icky? Put away that wrench!
Can a hammer fix a cold?
Can a screwdriver drive away an itchy spot?

Every kid has them, and every parent, or kid-caretaker, has had to deal with them - those meltdown-tantrum-pitching-a-fit moments! Peter Panda has them - when it's time to leave the playground, when some other child has the book he wants, when Mama insists he eat some broccoli. When this happens: Uh-oh. Here it comes. Here comes that frown. Peter Panda melts dowwwnnn! Presented with humor and understanding, Artie Bennett's bright and sprightly story offers a way for children to recognize their own behaviors. Parents and kids can talk about what they see on the pages and gain some insight on how to handle such incidents - including when Mama Panda has a little meltdown of her own!
In You Can't Ride a Bicycle to the Moon, kids will explore the science of the moon, the space race, the craft of spacecraft, living in space, tourists in space, and a lot more!

From Space walks, to space garbage, to how to make a peanut butter sandwich in space, kids will want to read the You Can't… books because they are all about THEM.

Why can't you hear a siren with your eyes? Spot an airplane with your hands? And how come a pickle on your ear isn't delicious?
In You Can't Take a Pickle with Your Ear kids discover how each of their five senses is hard at work all day long, providing them with information and helping them get the most out of their daily lives.
Whenever you think, "I'm oh-so-sweet,"

For all of them, Eric offers a wise, witty, and uplifting tale that kids won't want to put down!

Capped off with a spread on "Fart-tastic Facts & Burp-tacular Bits," this amazing, amusing mix of humor and nonfiction is an ideal draw for reluctant readers, classroom units on body science - and kids who just think burps and farts are funny!
