The next couple of books I'll read

Random Acts of Kindness by Animals ~ by Stephanie LaLand, 1997 and 2008, stories, 226 pages

Stephanie LaLand has gathered stories sure to fill your heart with happiness and hope.  Anyone who’s had a pet knows there is something special about them.  We see it in their eyes when they look at us affectionately or play with others or help someone in need.  How animals act and the things they do are similar to the way we care for each other.  Doris Day says in the Foreword:  "That tender connection — the bond between all living things that we call love — is what this little book is all about."

Four Fantastic Surprise Endings for Children 3-5 ~ by Scott Gordon, 2015, children's stories, 176 pages
  1. Froggy Dearest ~ One fine day, you come across the frog of your dreams.  Soft spoken and ever courteous, you've never met a creature quite so charming.  But tread carefully, for this frog has quite a secret to share!
  2. Little Chickadee ~ After months of loneliness, a little chickadee realizes that he misses someone in particular.  He writes constantly and waits for her return, but time slowly trickles by with no end in sight.  There's something he's been meaning to tell her — something very, very special.  Will he get the chance?
  3. Eggtastic ~ Spring is just around the corner, and it's time to see what the Easter Bunny is up to.  This year he's enlisted some help, and it's an odd choice at that.  What is that clever rabbit up to, and what is he really planning?  Find out in this humorous picture book.
  4. Who Wants To Be a Robot? ~ The off-world planet of Infinim, which promises a heavenly and eternal existence for its society of robots, is now taking applications. Although one of its applicants is older and not quite as quick as he used to be, does he have what it takes to be accepted?  Figure out who he is before the story's end in this clever children's book.
I found both of these books on the Kindle I inherited from my friend Donna.
