Children today will be as entranced by these ridiculous rhymes as they have been since the book's original publication in 1960 - so amused and enchanted, in fact, they may not even notice they are learning to read!

"The game begins at half past six, when dinos grab their hockey sticks." Rhyming couplets set the scene for a fantastical sports event: a hockey game played between opposing dinosaur teams: the Meat-Eaters and the Veggiesaurs. Gott's action-filled paintings amplify the sports moves and the players' comically exaggerated expressions, from the scowling face off between T. Rex and Tricera to the jubilant postgame celebration, covered by eager dino newscasters. Kids new to hockey may need help visualizing terms such as assist and check, but even if they don't have a full grasp of specifics, many children will be caught up by the inventive premise, the slapstick humor, and the energy in the words and pictures. By sorting teams by herbivores and carnivores, this also sneaks in a science lesson that is reinforced with a scoreboard visual.

By Roch Carrier, Illustrated by Sheldon Cohen

First published in 1979 in a collection of adult stories, Roch Carrier's The Hockey Sweater is now firmly established as a Canadian classic! Basing the story on his own childhood growing up in St. Justine, Quebec, in the 1940s, Carrier describes the passion that he and his friends had for hockey, and particularly for the exploits of hockey great Maurice "The Rocket" Richard of the Montreal Canadiens. Roch and his friends all have red Canadiens sweaters emblazoned with Richard's famous number 9. When Roch outgrows his sweater, his mother orders him a new one from Eaton's in Montreal. The sweater that arrives 2 weeks later, though, isn't a Canadiens sweater but the blue-and-white sweater of the Toronto Maple Leafs, which Roch can't imagine wearing under any circumstances! But wear the Leafs sweater he must, with hilarious consequences. Sheldon Cohen's warm, rich illustrations are a perfect match for Carrier's exuberant text.

By Marie-Louise Gay

In the first new Stella book in four years — in a series that has sold two million copies in ten languages — Stella introduces little brother Sam to the pleasures of reading. Sam is as busy and worried as ever, and Stella almost always has her nose in a book these days, but she finds time to help him out, while sharing her new pastime with contagious enthusiasm.

Sam has gathered a wagonload of branches to build a doghouse for Fred, and he wonders if the book Stella is reading tells you how to make one. It doesn't (although it is very funny), but Stella is more than willing to give Sam a hand. As soon as the doghouse is built though, Sam worries that a wolf might come along and blow it down. Stella breezily banishes his fears, suggesting a picnic at Lily Pond. Stella cools her feet in the water, reading a story, while Sam tries to catch a frog. Are there frogs in Stella's book, he wonders. No, Stella tells him, but there is a toad wearing a velvet jacket…

With her characteristically light touch, Marie-Louise Gay imparts the pleasures and importance of reading to her young audience, whether it be humor, fiction, nonfiction or poetry. Her detailed, beautifully rendered and often-amusing watercolor illustrations (spot the tiny bunny reading a book!) show yet again that Marie-Louise Gay is one of the very best artists creating picture books today.

By Dr. Seuss

Turn out the lights and say how-dee-do to Dr. Seuss's spookiest character… the empty pants! Yes, the pair of pale green pants (with nobody inside them!) is more hair-raising than ever with the addition of a special nontoxic ink that glows in the dark after brief exposure to light! What Was I Scared Of: A Glow-in-the-Dark Encounter is a compelling allegory about shaking hands with your deepest fears that's perfect for reading at slumber parties, on campouts, and underneath the covers. It was one of Dr. Seuss's personal all-time favourites. We have no doubt it will become one of yours, too!

By Dr. Seuss

Poor Dick and Sally. It's cold and wet and they're stuck in the house with nothing to do...until a giant cat in a hat shows up, transforming the dull day into a madcap adventure and almost wrecking the place in the process! Written by Dr. Seuss in 1957 in response to concerns about growing illiteracy among children, The Cat in the Hat (the first Random House Beginner Book) changed the way our children learn how to read!

In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for the best-selling series, Beginner Books. This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills. Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss has charmed his way into the consciousness of 4 generations of youngsters and parents. Help your kids learn to read the Dr. Seuss way!

Winner of the 1957 Association for Childhood Education International Books for Children Bibliography Award, and the 1957 Horn Book Children's Classics Award.

By Per-Henrik Gürth

Bestselling children's book author and illustrator Per-Henrik Gürth has created a colourful, lively tribute to hockey with this picture book for the youngest fans. The action-packed story follows a group of animals who take to the ice to play a rousing game of hockey. Highlighted on the pages in large type throughout the story are hockey vocabulary words and terms. The vocabulary ranges from the basics — such as team, net, shot — to more complex concepts — face-off, line change, penalty — and the author has cleverly used and defined each of them within the story. For example, on the two-page spread where the term power play appears, the illustration is of the two teams facing each other on the ice, five players on one side, four on the other, and the text reads, "It's five against four — a power play!" Every spread has at least one word or term, though some have more, and on two of the pages the words simply label things in the illustrations.

This terrific book could be used three different ways, within language arts as well as physical education. The fun, dramatic story can stand alone as a great read, with pre-readers easily able to use the context of the simple artwork to interpret the language, while the highlighted words and terms offer wonderful vocabulary enhancement for beginning readers. And the content provides an excellent basic tutorial on how to play hockey, and on team sports in general.
