Have Some Fun With These Books!

From a little girl with a very loud voice that dreams of being a librarian, to a whole collection of animals wearing pants, to a little boy that wishes to be big and gets more than he bargained for, to a helicopter that saves the day! Your young readers will be having a ball with these four fun and funny titles!

  • The Loud Librarian by JENNA BEATRICE and illustrated by ERIKA LYNNE JONES. Penelope is perfect for the job of student-librarian, she's friendly, helpful, and a book lover. There’s just one snag. Penelope is... LOUD. Bookcases may topple and the ground may quake at the sound of her voice, but Penelope is determined to prove she’s perfect for the job and stay true to herself. Can a little librarian with a big voice find a place where she belongs?

  •  Animals in Pants by SUZY LEVINSON. An irreverently illustrated picture book of simple and silly poems featuring all kinds of animals wearing all kinds of pants. What? You’ve never seen animals in pants? A dog in yoga pants, a goat in overalls, a yak in slacks? Animals in Pants presents a parade of impeccable poems about animals wearing perfectly pressed pants.

  • I Want to Be Big! By TIFFANY GOLDEN, illustrated by SAWYER CLOUD. Jaiceon wishes he was big — bigger than his whole family, bigger than everyone! If he were big, he could reach the cookies on the counter, or stay up really late. When Jaiceon’s wish is granted, rules shrink away, and he dives into a world of enormous fun. But as he grows, the situation grows out of control along with him, and Jaiceon starts to wonder if being small wasn’t so bad after all.

  • Roto and Roy: To the Rescue! by SHERRI DUSKEY RINKER. When a flash flood threatens a nearby town, helicopter Roto and pilot Roy soar to the rescue! Quick—a truck needs to be hoisted to safety! Hurry—that family’s car is being swept away! Now grab as many sandbags and supplies as you can carry! This mission’s going to be rough, but Roy and Roto are tougher than tough.
