"I can't wear glasses," says the young patient. "Only dorks wear glasses." "Wrong!" says the mad optometrist. "Your mom wears glasses. Your sister wears glasses . . ." Big deal. But then there are dinosaurs and fuzzy bunnies, Hong-Kong flu bugs and little green men. They wear glasses! And that's only the beginning. The list gets crazier. The patient gets impatient. Is this guy seeing things? Or is he showing his patient the real wild world that's been under his nose all along? Seeing is believing--in the hilarious world of the antic and the unexpected that only Lane Smith could create. Ages 5 and up.
The magic of The Book transports Joe, Sam, and Fred back in time to the Wild West where they are stampeded by a herd of crazed cattle, almost poisoned by trail chow, and suffocated by the odor of cows.
From the creator of the national bestseller It's a Book comes a timeless story of family history, legacy, and love. Grandpa Green wasn't always a gardener. He was a farm boy and a kid with chickenpox and a soldier and, most of all, an artist. In this captivating new picture book, readers follow Grandpa Green's great-grandson into a garden he created, a fantastic world where memories are handed down in the fanciful shapes of topiary trees and imagination recreates things forgotten. In his most enigmatic and beautiful work to date, Lane Smith explores aging, memory, and the bonds of family history and love; by turns touching and whimsical, it's a stunning picture book that parents and grandparents will be sharing with children for years to come. Grandpa Green is a Publishers Weekly Best Children's Picture Books title for 2011. One of School Library Journal's Best Picture Books of 2011.

Other books by Dr. Seuss and Jack Prelutsky are also available from Bookshare. This file should make an excellent embossed braille. copy.

It's Lulu's birthday and she's decided she'd like a pet brontosaurus as a present. When Lulu's parents tell her that's not possible, Lulu gets very upset. She does not like it when things don't go her way. So she takes matters into her own hands and storms off into the forest to find herself a new pet, all the way singing: I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna, gonna, get a bronto-bronto-bronto-bronto-saurus for a pet! In the forest Lulu encounters a number of animals; a snake, a tiger, a bear, all of whom don't particularly impress her. And then she finds him...a beautiful, long-necked, gentle, graceful brontosaurus. And he completely agrees with Lulu that having a pet would be a wonderful thing, indeed! Lulu thinks she's gotten her birthday wish at last. Until she realizes that Mr. Brontosaurus thinks that she would make an ideal pet for him! How will Lulu ever get out of this sticky situation without throwing a fit (Mr. B does not respond well to those), or using force (Mr. B is much to tall to bonk on the head with her suitcase), or smushing her pickle sandwich?
