If, and only if, Amazon has listed the book in the past, will you be able to list also. Ebay is also very easy and inexpensive to use for a few books and it allows you more room to describe the books. For pricing your book, it is easier and more accurate to use the Abebooks.

It was about a family and Christmas It was my favorite book between I wish I could remember more details to help in the search.
Please let me know if you can identify it. I had a copy of this when I was young, so I'd guess this was published from the mid s to the early 80s. It was hard cover and I remember the book being brown, but this might be because many of the illustrations had a brown or sepia tone. I've looked at Google Images and don't see anything that looks like what I remember.

Im looking for a series of illustrated childrens books possibly from the 60's 70's or 80's. They were written by a man and a woman, i think she wrote the books and he illustrated possibly husband and wife and their picture was always on the back of the books, and they looked a little hippy-ish.

Looking for a rainy day activity book that had newspaper scope and milk carton birdhouse equipped with peanut butter and birdseeds.
I read a book a while back about a boy who was obsessed with the idea of going to Georgia to see rockets fly. He had model rockets of all sorts, and always watched rocket tv shows and such. It all took place during the Vietnam War and his father was digging a bomb shelter outside, and his father became obsessed with the project, but something terrible happened. A boy that I think ended up having a mental disability wanted the boy's toy rocket, and he went to get it and the boy fell in the ditch that was going to be used for the shelter and was speared on a cast-iron foundation bar.
The boy's brother was devastated. He later found a stray dog and somehow figured out his brother's soul was in this dog, and the boy tried hitchhiking his way to Georgia to see the rockets. At one point he was taken into custody, and went on the news and eventually made it to Georgia. I also believe at one point the boys before the brother died had a secret hide out in the woods, and also at the end the dog leads the boy to the dead brother's toy in the mentally disabled boy's backyard. Thanks, -Kyle. In the early 's I had a soft cover book about 5"x7".
The cover was white. It was filled with real photographs of things in the woods like toadstools, ferns, mosses, fungus, leaves. The book described how fairies, or pixies, used these things every day. Please help me find it if you can. It had a story for every day and the stories were like tales about elfs, witches and ravens. Could you help me out?
Do you have any idea of the title or autor of this book? Thank you! A young girl who lives on a ship. She fantasizes about being a princess. This book had to be from the 70's or 80's. I believe that the cover may be of a young girl laying on her bed. Possibly with her hair in two braids.
In the 80's I read a book about a little girl who was made fun of by others for her big red hair, so she climbed a tree. I remember she looked in the mirror and I think she fell out of the tree and broke her arm. I don't remember the title or the author. I am looking for a book that I believe is a Christmas book. It's about a little boy who has a blanket that he carries absolutely everywhere. It begins to fall apart and so his grandpa turns it into something smaller than a blanket and it keeps falling apart so the grandpa turns it into something else and it continues to wear out so in the very end the grandpa turns it into a handkerchief for the little boy.
I have been looking for this book for years so if anyone can help I would appreciate it greatly! My sister and I loved this book when we were little and cannot think of the name.

I live in southern Louisiana One important fact for your search: Readers were issued for particular states or regions, so, for instance, a Wisconsin Bobbs Merrill edition might have a different racial mix from a Louisiana one. Good luck, write back if this doesn't help, Suzanne. I'm looking for a book, I'm not sure what it's called or who it's written by, but I remember there was a girl and she was kinda big and she had a pet anteater and she had a friend who used to wear a baseball uniform.
The drawing style was odd and I believe it was pastel colors. These books mean alot to me and I would love to find them!! I remember reading this book when I was a kid. I remember the pictures being very colorful, with somewhat thick black outlines; they resembled stained glass. In the first story, the nightingale gets a thorn stuck in her foot, and asks a barber for help. The barber won't help her, for some reason I think that he may have said that he was too busy, but I'm not sure , and the nightingale, angered by his selfishness, asks the rajah to help her get the better of him, but he won't I remember the rajah being rather large and fat; he had a black mustache and wore a pinkish-purple suit and a turban of the same color.
The nightingale then asks a mouse to nibble a hole in the rajah's belly, but he won't, then she asks a tiger to catch the mouse, but he won't. I don't remember all of what happened next, but she basically asks several other people to help but they won't, and she somehow finally convinces everyone to help her, resulting in such things as the mouse saying, "I will nibble a hole in the rajah's belly", and the rajah agreeing to get back at the barber et al.
The barber begs for mercy, and finally helps the nightingale get the thorn out of her foot. The second story I regrettably only have a vague memory of, but the nightingale was I think playing various pranks on the rajah I don't remember the reason why, but he might have given her trouble earlier , such as tricking a frog into his food, with predictable end results. I remember a picture of the rajah raging over all of the things that kept happening. Needless to say, things are rectified between the two of them when all is said and done.
I'm looking for a children's book my mom used to read to me. It contained short stories and had tools to learn how to count. The book was light purple and was probably 12" x 9" in size. I remember the counting activity used different things to help memorization also. I remember one number had fish another was drums and there were kings.
All the things had names. Example for the fish is: Fishy, dishy, pishy and squishy. The drums were something like: drum little, tum little. The kings were: kingy, clingy, ringy, dingy One of the short stories was about lightening bugs. There was also a short story about Lady Bugs. I was born in and I remember my mom reading it when I was in kindergarten that would have been in "86". Please help! I have searched forever and can't find this book anywhere. Im looking for a book I was given when I was in primary school, this would have been roughly What I remember of the book was a teddy bear was abandoned at a dump.
He was found by a little girl one night who took him to her grannies and she fixed him up. The story continues with the teddy finding a number of new homes, one of these being with a large family. A bit I remember was of one of the young boys on the family having a competition with one of his friends to see who could urinate the highest up a wall. The teddy is left alone in a room with other toys when the family go on holiday to I think the seaside. Another bit I can roughly remember is the bear in some kind of shop where he is left on a high shelf, doubtful that he'll ever find a new owner.
I could be completely off with that. Hope someone can help. Someone turns up at a small village perhaps in Switzerland? I don't remember them being very happy about going and I believe the children were in their early teens, because I think there was a mild hint at future romance.
