The Book With No Pictures

Submitted by Ms. Amy!
The Book With No Pictures by B.J. Novak. “Why would any kid want to read a book with no pictures?” you might be asking yourself. True, this book has no pictures, from the front cover to the back. None at all. Only words. BUT, this book is special because it reveals a secret rule about books that you might not know. The rule is this: when a grown up reads this book, they have to say EVERY. SINGLE. WORD. that is written in this book. No matter what. Get ready to giggle while reading this interactive picture-less book with your kids. Even preschoolers can enjoy this silly book (I tested it on my 3-year-old, and was asked for multiple repeat performances!) where grown ups must make all kinds of ridiculous sounds, goofy voices, and even pretend to be a ROBOT MONKEY!

Buddy and the Bunnies in Don't Play with Your Food

Submitted by Ms. Tess!
Meet Buddy and the bunnies in Buddy and the Bunnies in Don't Play with Your Food, an official Bob Shea story. Buddy is a scary monster! He wants to eat all the bunnies! He's terrifying! But wait. The bunnies were just about to make cupcakes. Cupcakes? Maybe Buddy can wait to eat the bunnies and bake with them instead. The next day though he's definitely going to eat them. But wait! The bunnies were just about to go swimming. Swimming? That sounds like fun. Buddy can't eat the bunnies and then go swimming. He'd get a belly ache. But tomorrow those bunnies are getting eaten for sure. But wait! The bunnies are on their way to a carnival. Carnival? Buddy wants to go! And he would eat those bunnies if he didn't get sick on the rides... When Buddy shows up the next day, he's bound and determined to finally eat those bunnies. But wait! He's had so much fun with those bunnies the past few days, and didn't his mother always say never to play with your food? Maybe bunnies aren't food after all. Maybe they're friends!

Little Boo

Submitted by Ms. Allana!
Little Boo by Stephen Wunderli, illustrated by Tim Zeltner. What would you call a little seed who is trying to be scary? Boo! Of course! Little Boo is a seed but he kind of resembles a ghostly shape, which gives away what time of year it is. It’s Fall, and little Boo is making his way through the gardens and fields trying to scare other creatures. The wind tells little Boo that it isn’t time to be scary yet. What exactly does she mean? The snow comes and covers little Boo as he is resting underground for what seems like a very long time. Changes happen to little Boo as he is under the ground. When he finally feels the warm sunshine, he reaches for it. He stretches and reaches and begins to grow. Will he eventually become something scary? The wind knows. This is a delightful seasonal story for preschoolers and little ones. The illustrations are unique too. The artist used acrylic on plywood with stains and glazes for a wonderful effect.

Meet the Parents

Submitted by Ms. Amy!
Meet the Parents by Peter Bently. Maybe you think that parents are just there to tell you what to do. To make sure you brush your teeth, eat your veggies, and go to bed on time. It’s true, parents do all of those things, but parents have many other jobs and uses that you may never have thought of before: they can be towels and heaters, sofas and tent poles. Wait, tent poles? With bright, playful pictures, this book shows the many things parents do for and with their kids. Parents will chuckle, shake their heads, and smile over the amusing pictures, and say “Yes, that’s true!” Kids will be reminded of the many different ways that parents can show how much they love their children. Snuggle up with your favorite little one, and share a sweet and silly story together! See this book listed in our catalog

Uni the Unicorn

Submitted by Ms. Sue!
Uni the Unicorn by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, illustrated by Brigette Barrager. Uni was just like all other unicorns for the most part. She had the power to heal and mend. She could make wishes come true, and she had a magnificent mane and sparkly hooves (of course, her's were extra beautiful too). But there was one thing that made her different from all other unicorns that she knew. Uni believed that little girls were REAL. All her friends just laughed at her and said there are no such things. Her parents just smiled at her and nodded their heads. But Uni just knew that no matter what everyone says, little girls were real. She would imagine all the things that she could do with a real girl, like run through meadows, spin and twirl in the sunlight, and especially sliding down rainbows together. What Uni didn’t know is that somewhere far away, but not that far, there was a little girl, who thought unicorns were real too. Not just make-believe, just waiting for her to be their friend...
