It might be the shaggy, playful little pup, romping about, pink tongue lolling, stopping to scratch behind a floppy ear. Or it might be the clanking parade of creatures inventively created out of muffin pans, feather dusters, potato mashers, buckets and dustpans. It might even be the six tiny penguins warbling a winter song, wrapped in woolen mufflers and furry hoods.

Corey Aynn Morgan, 8th grade: "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton (Puffin). "This is an excellent story about the hardships of life in the late '60s.

From the moment they are born and feel the air of the world against their tender skin, children begin to develop their senses. Later, conveniently, kids will use their senses to learn about the senses--an important developmental stage of learning that leads to better understanding of their bodies and the world around them.
