Tune in to discover: 

  • The Unwelcome Surprise by OLGA HERRERAEvery morning, Bongo walks downstairs to get his food, passing his dried-up potted plant, his old stained chair, and his stinky stained carpet. Until one morning, something is different. Something monstrous is in his way! Bongo is beside himself with worry. Will it take his walks? What if it eats his food? Or even worse, what if it takes his family?! Perfect for fans of Something's Wrong! and Can I Be Your Dog?, this charmingly funny new-baby story, told from the perspective of a dog, explores the fears and joys that come with change.

  • Ancient Night by DAVID BOWLES. In this twist on two Nahuatl traditions, we meet the rabbit which the Feathered Serpent placed on the moon, and Yaushu, the Lord Opossum who ruled the earth before humans came, and who stole fire from the gods to create the sun.

  • We Might See by CHARLIE MYLIE. In the tradition of Richard Scarry, this cleverly conceived first-words picture book is sure to satisfy the youngest readers. Against this lively rhyming narrative text, readers will find a splash of first words on each spread, inviting little ones to identify things they might see in their own backyards. And some unexpected things, too!

  • Snake's Big Mistake by SARAH KURPIEL

    Snake loves art class — until his project is a disaster, and he makes a terrible mistake that hurts a friend. Acclaimed author-artist Sarah Kurpiel’s Snake’s Big Mistake is a picture book about art, friendship, apologizing, and forgiveness!
