Nose in a Book: 5 Kids' Books About Spring, Green and Gardening

Tops & Bottoms Tops & Bottoms, by Janet Stevens

Tops & Bottoms is a wonderful folk story about hard work. A poor hare needs to provide for his large family and rich Bear is happy to have him take care of his fields. “You get tops and I get bottoms,” promises clever Hare who sorts the harvest into root vegetables for him and the useless tops for Bear.

A clever take on the trickster theme, the kids at a recent Mockingbird Books story time found Bear’s shoes and sleeping posture worthy of discussion. The book is laid out top to bottom, making it great for sharing with a group.

Age recommendation: 3 and up
