3 Sky Sweeper by Phillis Gershator 3 of 15 As a boy, Takeboki becomes a "Flower Keeper" at a Zen temple, and his work shaping the monks' garden becomes a lifelong occupation. His family objects: shouldn't he find a more lucrative, prestigious job? Even the monks withhold praise. But Takeboki listens only to the profound joy his work brings. When he grows too old to rake, the monks finally realize his contribution. They rush to thank him, but they find that he has already passed on to heaven, where he joyfully sweeps a celestial garden of clouds and stars

4 “"THAT DADBLAMED COW!" She follows her owner into the Union army and then straight on south to fight in the war. She needs unstomped grass to eat, she gets stuck in the mud, and she’s just plain DANGEROUS in battle. But this peculiar cow also gives the weary soldiers some surprising comforts.

He is delivered to the friends of an abolitionist doctor in Philadelphia on March 30, of 15

8 Scaredy Squirrel Makes Friends by Melanie Watt 8 of 15 Scaredy Squirrel is lonely, but he thinks that the pleasure of making a friend would be outweighed by the greater risk of potential danger. After all, there are a lot of things that bite out in the big world. The life lessons of the importance of overcoming one's fears and not judging outward appearance are wrapped up in a witty package of deceptively simple cartoonlike illustrations and lively text.
