Booktalk #1

Some of you may recognize this story as it is very similar to a very well-known tale.  Three little aliens are living with their mother on the planet Mercury.  She tells them that it is time for them to find their own planet.  She warns them about the Big Bad Robot.  Stick together and be careful.  Where do you think they will end up?

Booktalk #2

Three little aliens are all grown up and ready to head into space and find their own homes. Each alien settles onto his own planet, and soon a big bad robot comes to call. The three little aliens find safety together in the third alienís home. Does this story sound familiar? It is a funny twist on the Three Little Pigs! You will laugh at the aliens and their silly antics, and you will love the illustrations that help you get to know the planets in our solar system.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award nominee, 2014)
