New Picture Books

! Exclamation Mark by Amy Rosenthal
An exclamation mark is trying to fit in with the other punctuation marks and finally realizes he is unique. This is a story about finding out that being different is a good thing.

Elsie’s Bird by Jane Yolen
One of the Georgia Picture book award nominees, this story is of a young girl heading out with her father to start homesteading. In Nebraska there are none of the city noises she was used to hearing. Her canary is the only noise she hears until he escapes and she has to venture on to the prairie to find him. Elsie finally hears the voices of the plains and settles into her new prairie home.

Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle
The little blue truck and friendly farm animals teach an important lesson to the busy dump truck. Lots of noises will make this a fun read aloud.

Zero the Hero by Joan Holub
The counting numbers don’t realize how important Zero is until they encounter the Roman Numerals. Read how he rescues his friends and they discover he is their Hero.

Again by Emily Gravett
This tale should be very familiar. It is about a little dragon who wants the same book to be read at bedtime again, and again, and again. In fact she is so persistent that something unexpected happens. You will love seeing what this little dragon does as everyone else in the story falls asleep.

Meet the Cars from Disney Pixar
This is a fun way to see all the cars and other vehicles from the movies. All the fun facts are included about each one. Car lovers will really like this one.

Tribes of Chima, Meet the Heroes, and Defend the Castle are three new Lego titles. These will be fun to read with the new Lego movie coming soon.

The Lego Adventure Book gives a brick by brick breakdown for building cars, castles, dinosaurs, and more.

Ol’ Mama Squirrel by David Stein
This Mama Squirrel scolds everything from a kite to a grizzly bear. With her “Chook, Chook, Chook!!”, she doesn’t let anything near her babies.

New Kids Books

A Tale Dark and Grimm by Adam Gidwitz
A prequel to Hansel and Gretel, this tale takes the children from one gruesome situation to another. You thought being almost eaten by a witch was awful, wait till you read what could have happened instead.

World of the Weird by Tracey Turner
Weird, bizarre, extreme, mysterious, amazing, magical and eccentric are just a few of the words that describe all the facts and folklore in this book. This book will satisfy and peak your curiosity.

Breadcrumbs by Anna Ursu
Hazel encounters many perilous and poignant adventures in her search for her best friend, Jack. This is a touching story of friendship and growth. Friendships change but can grow at the same time.

The Name of this book is a Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch
The secret unfolds as you meet the heroes, follow their trails, solve riddles and mysteries, and face the villains. But I can’t tell you anymore; it’s a secret.

DW – Witness to the Holocaust
