Transcript of Author Presentation on Doreen Cronin

Author Doreen Cronin Wiggle This story encourages students to get up and wiggle. It is told in a rhyme that keeps the children's attention. The goal at the end is to hopefully have the child fall into bed at the end, exhausted from wiggling. I really like the illustrations in this book because each page has at least one piece of a real photograph somewhere on it. Dooby Dooby Moo Duck and his friends are at it again. This time they're pooling their considerable resources to win a local talent show, because first prize is the Trampoline. The cows want to sing. The sheep want to sing. The pigs want to dance. And Duck just wants to win the trampoline. But first he has a problem: Farmer Brown. In the end, the animals win the trampoline. Duck For President Illustrator: Betsy Lewin Awards Background Information Diary of a Spider This is the diary ... of a spider.
But don't be worried – he's more scared of you and your gigantic shoe! Actually, he's a lot like you. He goes to gym class and has Grandparents' Day at school. But he also spins sticky webs, scales walls, and takes wind–catching lessons. Lucky for him, his best friend is a fly! Rescue Bunnies Newbie is a rescue bunny trainee. She has passed 3 tests already but still has the hardest one left; the field test. One day they get a call that a giraffe is sinking in the mud and needs help. The chief tells her this will be her field test. Code red means that hyenas are close and that the bunnies need to evacuate. Eventually Newbie does not care about the hyenas and does everything she can to get the giraffe out. Thankfully, they end up pulling her out. At the end, the chief tells Newbie that she has a lot of heart and that she can learn the rest. Additional Resources http://ethemes.missouri.edu/themes/1514 Born and raised in New York
