Here’s a new batch of books, just in time for autumn:
Another in the long line of “monster manners” books. Little monsters frolic in the park and get grumpy, but of course, end up saying “sorry”. Very simple rhyming test will add filler to monster/Halloween storytimes. Non-scary pictures make it fun for the wee ones.
How big could your pumpkin grow? By Wendell Minor
A fun add to October storytimes which includes a lot of great vocabulary.
Monster be good by Natalie Marshall
Friendly, silly, big-eyed monsters misbehave, but this book tells you how to tame them. A nice addition to Halloween storytimes.
A fanciful addition to the bedtime genre. What goes on while you sleep? Little elves called the Wee Hours prance about in your bedroom, that’s what. Gentle and playful wee things inhabit this night-time counting book. Have children count and move along.
Read me a story, Stella – by Marie Louise Gay
Stella and Sam have lovely imaginations, and Ms. Gay shows us that those good imaginations came from reading books. Familiar characters make this very sweet bookish tale a good add to storytimes for those who can sit for a longer reading.
Pete the Cat- Wheels on the Bus
Not as spiffy and fun as a “real” Pete the Cat book, this one is based on the character created by J. Dean and Eric Litwin. While not as great as we expect from Pete, it will be a good addition to the transportation storytimes, especially for groups who know and love Pete.
Little woodpecker learns to peck- and pecks everything in sight! Have kids peck along for a fun interactive read. Nicely designed with holes in the pages, this book is a good fit for storytimes.
My Blue is Happy by Jessica Young
A young girl looks at colors through her own lens – and as others see them and finds that colors can be many moods. A different look at color for storytime.
The things I can do– by Jeff Mack
Proud toddlers who have learned to tie shoes, use glue, draw, and take a bath will relate to the characters in this rhyming book with fun, child-like illustrations.
