Join us in-store to enjoy: 

  • My Wish For The World by KRISTINE A. LOMBARDIAt bedtime, a child asks his mother what it is that she wishes for. She has many wishes — to respect nature and the earth, to give shelter to those in need, to lend a helping hand. No matter her wish, one thing is clear: there are lots of ways to show and encourage kindness.  

  • The Train Home by DAN-AH KIM. Nari lives in a rowdy home in a crowded city, and sometimes wishes she lived somewhere quiet and beautiful that she has all to herself. So when a train rumbles by her window, Nari goes on a journey to find her dream home. What if it's too quiet, or so beautiful she wants to share it? Maybe the train can take her back home, where she truly belongs.

  • Hope is a Hop by KATRINA MOORE and illustrated by MELISSA IWAI. When Eva's hopes for a cheerful flower garden are dashed by a rascally — and hungry! — rabbit, she sinks into despair. But it's from this new vantage point that she discovers something surprising and wonderful about her four-legged-nemesis that reminds Eva of her own growing family and inspires her to try again.

  • Manolo and the Unicorn by JACKIE AZUA KRAMER and JONAH KRAMERTo Manolo the world is a magical place — a place where he searches for the most magical creature of all: a unicorn. Manolo loves unicorns. When the Wild Animal Parade is announced at school, and Manolo declares that he will come as his favorite animal, his classmates say there is no such thing as unicorns, making the world feel ordinary. That is, until Manolo meets a real unicorn — wild and graceful — and discovers that the world is truly extraordinary.
