Abstract
Aaron loves his house full of pets, but when he is diagnosed with allergies, he must find new homes for his dog, cats, and guinea pigs. While he is upset at having to do so, he eventually realizes that his goldfish is fun, as are the butterflies and frogs he finds outside. The text only touches on the actual discussion of allergies, focusing more on the child's feelings. The tone of the writing is warm, and the colorful illustrations add humorous touches while capturing Aaron's devastation at losing his beloved animals and his gradual acceptance of his problem. A useful book to help young allergy sufferers to realize that there is indeed life after furry pets.

Abstract
Everyone knows that going to the doctor can be a little scary. For a small child who may not understand why being poked, prodded, and jabbed with a needle is necessary, the prospect is especially daunting. In this book, Angus the dog takes young readers by the hand and guides them through a visit to the doctor's office. Each two-page spread asks a question: "Why do I have to go to the doctor?" "Why does the doctor push down on my tummy?" "What's a shot?" "Do I need one?" and more, each question anticipating the next. Then Angus answers each question.

Abstract
A story which addresses the complex problem of eating disorders in a language that children from ages 5-12 can understand. It is a beautifully illustrated book telling the story of two mice who use food in an effort to cope with the stress in their lives. "Mouse stress" involves an ever-present cat, mouse-traps, a dog and a rat who chase the small mice. The boy mouse, Billy Blue, overeats for comfort and solace. His sister, Sally Rose, under-eats in an attempt to reduce her size in order to be safe. While Billy is teased for being fat, his sister is admired for her tiny body. Their parents, though well intentioned, are distracted by work and compulsive cleaning. Their wise aunt teaches them to listen to their bodies, tune in to their feelings and get their needs met in more effective ways.
