Haunt Fox // by Jim Kjelgaard

After Lion Hound and Wild Trek, I believe Haunt Fox was the next Jim Kjelgaard book that I read.  My name and phone number are still inscribed inside the battered Bantam-Skylark paperback that I own, but no date, although from my handwriting I would guess somewhere around 10 or 11.   503 more words

Hush Little Baby by Sylvia Long

This is a lovely reworking of the traditional lullaby, with wonders of nature and comforts of home substituted for the somewhat impractical items promised to baby in the original version; for example, “when the nighttime shadows fall, Mama’s going to hear the crickets call,” and “if that quilt begins to wear, Mama’s going to find your teddy bear.”  We discovered it when Baby Girl the Second was an infant, and it’s still a favourite, now when she’s a big girl of six.
