Ask me what I like?What do you like?A father and daughter walk through their neighborhood, brimming with questions as they explore their world. With so many things to enjoy, and so many ways to ask--and talk--about them, it's a snapshot of an ordinary day in a world that's anything but. This story is a heartwarming and inviting picture book with a tenderly written story by Bernard Waber and glorious illustrations by Suzy Lee.
Bearsie Bear is just falling asleep when a very cold Moosie Moose knocks on the door and asks to sleep over in Bearsie Bear's warm bed. Next knocks Cowsie Cow, then Piggie Pig, then Foxie Fox, then Goosie Goose...and the bed becomes, to say the least, crowded. The final knock is from Porkie Porcupine, whose insistence on a place to sleep causes a very pointed problem. How these animal friends make room for one another makes for a truly friendly picture book read-aloud for very young children.
What is courage? Certainly it takes courage for a firefighter to rescue someone trapped in a burning building, but there are many other kinds of courage too. Everyday kinds that normal, ordinary people exhibit all the time, like "being the first to make up after an argument," or "going to bed without a nightlight." Bernard Waber explores the many varied kinds of courage and celebrates the moments, big and small, that bring out the hero in each of us.

A cranky neighbor puts Lyle in the zoo but experiences a change of heart when the crocodile saves him from a fire.
Once upon a time in the jungle... a rhinoceros came upon a hippopotamus splashing about in the mud. "You look ridiculous," said the rhinoceros to the hippopotamus. "But I like mud," answered the hippopotamus. "Oh, it isn't the mud that makes you look ridiculous," said the rhinoceros. "It's your nose." And so it was that the hippopotamus came to investigate her nose - then her mane, her spots, her ears - as one after another of the animals made his polite suggestion. This is a book full of kindness and foible, told with gentleness and humor by a real master of both. Bernard Waber's original illustrations radiate a fresh joy in animal life just as his childlike story reveals one of the fundamental truths of human life.
