One was a puppy who found a home for Christmas. My favorie was a "German" story about an uncle in a log cabin jail who carved gifts for his niece and nephew. They exchanged the gifts and long Christmas cookies through the jail keyhole. Any ideas? As I recall it has individual stories in it about a naughty fox named Frankie Fox and a bunny that saves the day. The rabbit's name might be Chipper or Chester. One of the stories is about the rabbit saving a candy store and another about him preventing a train from being wrecked by foiling Frankie's plans.

Snakes: A Kids Book Of Cool Images And Amazing Facts About Snakes by John Yost
Not sure when it was published. I remember a little girl who walks home from school because she skins her knee, I think. She walks by herself but on the way she talks to rocks, flowers and trees. There's a thunderstorm and she finally makes it home. If you are able to Have you voted yet?

Looking for a Childhood Book? Here's How.
I know this book. It was published in Scholastic and had a yellow cover with the plants coming out of the house, kind of a family story. Once the Election is over, I'll be able to think of it. Meanwhile perhaps someone else will. Here are some other giant plant books which are NOT your book! A funny version of this theme, see also Cresswell's Bongleweed. How could Becky and her father, the gardener, bear to hurt it! Was it perhaps the Finches' Fabulous Furnace by Drury, also from the 70's?
The Finch family moves into an old house with a secret source of heat, a small volcano, which makes everything warmer. My grandmother used to have an old book a lot of us grand kids used to read. It was approx b5 size and about 2inches thick. It had beautiful illustrations in it. Some of the stories it had in it were "puss in boots", "the gingerbread man", Ali baba, rumpelstilskin, and a whole lot more. I can't remember the title of this book but the only thing I can remember is that the cover was a olive green colour, with a dark green band and an image of a castle on the covers spine.
Any help in finding out the name of this book would be greatly appreciated and maybe a picture too. I think i have that book. There is an old pic of a mother sitting with two little girls.

Thank you Millie, I certainly missed this one. This book is the first of 12 Rainbow Editions of the Book House. See our page for more than you want to know about Book Houses! Scroll about a third of the way down to see the book you are talking about. I remember reading this book years ago; I think it may have been from the '80s. It took place in a circus, and the book began with a clown asking the reader to hold a string for him It may have been a rope, but I'm pretty sure it was a string , and the reader then follows the string, which leads them to a series of other circus performers in humorous situations most of said circus performers had odd names, though regrettably I don't remember what they were.
There were acrobats, a man and a lady with a nasty little dog whose name was Spotted Shrimp; he was black with white spots , and I think even some animals, such as elephants. The book eventually ends with something like, "So, the next time you're at the circus and a clown asks you to hold a string, follow it. You never know what you might find. The books title was something like,"What's On the Other End? I remember reading this book when I was a kid. I think it was made in the '80s. A little boy who I believe had brown hair is looking for a pet, and visits this very odd pet shop; I remember that the entire story was in rhyme.
The pet shop owner presents him with several different pets, each with some bizzare and annoying trait, such as a robot-like creature who cleans up everything and a minotaur-like creature who messes up everything, a creature with a scissors-shaped head and I think a glue-brush shaped tail who cuts and glues whatever he can get his hands on, several tiny, car shaped creatures who go zooming everywhere, a raccoon in I think a Centurion helmet who causes various kinds of mischief, and a giant sphinx-like creature with a TV-screen face who breathes fire.
The boy as one might suppose turns each one of them down, until he's presented with a regular, normal dog. The pet shop owner insists that the boy couldn't possibly want the dog "She does not cut, she does not glue, she is not the pet for you! Any information would be much appreciated! I am looking for a picture book in print in the 's to 's.
It was a book of colors. Some of the words were as follows: Brown bear my brown bear smiles Pink doll my pink doll sleeps Purpe pinwheel my purple pinwheel twirls Gray car my gray car zooms Yellow horn my yellow horn toots Green boat my green boat sails Black engine my black engies goes Thanks! My mother read to me from a book of children's stories my grandmother was German and I wonder if the tales could have been translated from German to English that were cautionary tales. One story was about a little girl who didn't appreciate anything and so one by one she lost everything that was important to her.
The sheep came during the night and took away their wool, the trees, took away their wood, etc. The illustrations were dark because the action always happened at night. I remember the girl wearing a white nightgown. The other story I remember was about a little girl who worried about everything. Same dark pictures, but the one vivid illustration in my mind is an axe stuck in the ceiling of the attic or basement and the girl constantly worried it would fall and hurt her.
I have searched my whole adult life for this book of tales. I don't remember the cover or even how big the book was, but it seems the size of the book was about an 8 x Hi, there's this book I read in the 90s about a trolley or car or something, and that a young kid goes in it and travels back in time This might be the Phantom Tollbooth by Norman Juster. It's not a time travel book, Milo gets the car for his birthday and puts money in the tollbooth to go to a magic land.
The dog is a watchdog called Tock, he has a big clock on his side. They have to journey to rescue 2 princesses called Rhyme and Reason, with various adventures along the way, such as meeting a boy who starts out with his head at his adult height and grows downwards till he touches the floor. Does this sound familiar? I'm not from this website, but I thought your book description sounded familiar.
Could the book you're looking for be The Phantom Tollbooth? It doesn't have to do with time travel at least I don't think so , but the main character's name was Milo, there was a car, and there was a dog. I think you're right.
