Spectacular Titles to Fall in Love With! 

If you're looking for whimsy and adventure, look no further! With a boy that makes an intergalactic friend through their shared love of reading, a beautiful exploration of animals senses through dreams, a sweet book that can help lift you up when you're feeling down, a very cranky book that may not be so cranky after all, and a young boy determined to learn to swim, these four fantastic titles are sure to delight! 

Join us in-store for: 

  • The Book From Far Away by BRUCE HANDY and illustrated by JULIE BENBASSAT.  A child busy reading in a treehouse spots a family who just arrived on Earth for a picnic. The youngest member of this alien family holds a mind-bendingly strange object. Could it be a book from outer space? At the end of this wordless and gorgeously illustrated tale, each child returns home with a book from far away to remember a kind stranger.

  • Every Dreaming Creature by BRENDAN WENZELWelcome to a magical world of endless curiosity. You are a sleeping salamander. A dancing octopus. A speeding falcon... even a sneaking tiger and playful human child. As one dream slips into another, every page turn immerses you in the sensory wonder of the world and all its creatures! Each creature dreams and experiences life in a different way. Each is connected despite their differences.

  • Who I Am: Words I Tell Myself by SUSAN VERDEWe all have rough days: tough times when we feel down and an unkind voice in our mind can make us feel disappointed in ourselves. But we can talk back to that unkind voice; we can find the voice that will lift us up instead. We can tell ourselves words that are positive, supportive, and true. A celebration of self-love and owning all the things that make us special!

  • A Very Cranky Book illustrated by TONY DiTERLIZZIAre you ready to meet the world’s crankiest book? Cranky doesn’t want to be read. He just wants you to leave him alone. After all, there are so many other things you can do—like riding a bike, playing a game, or drawing a picture. There’s no reason for you to be bothering him! But when other books show up for story time, will Cranky change his mind?

  • Together We Swim by VALERIE BOLLINGJumping into the water can be more than a little scary! But with Mom’s steady arms there’s no fear of sinking. With a kick, a splash, and his family’s cheers of encouragement, one determined boy finds his groove, making waves in this fun-filled day at the pool.
